I so appreciate the commentary (TNT, 8-30) on the Israeli-Palestinian situation; it is a rare thing to see the real truth about that conflict in any newspaper.

I have the same feeling about the Viewpoint (TNT, 8-30) on the state teachers union. Getting the truth behind the news is so important and hard to find.

  1. I so appreciate the commentary (TNT, 8-30) on the Israeli-Palestinian situation; it is a rare thing to see the real truth about that conflict in any newspaper.

    Unfortunately, that commentary was the same as almost everything one reads about the I/P conflict – biased in one direction or the other. There may have been truth in that commentary but it left way too much out to be “the real truth”.

    The Palestinians are on the verge of being recognized/supported by many nations in their attempt to create a nation in exactly the same way that Israel was created – by declaring themselves a nation – various terrorist activities by the Palestinians runs completely counter to their self-interest at this crucial point in time.

    Yes – there are parties on both sides that prefer that the conflict never end as they generate power through that conflict – but it isn’t just the Palestinians. Mossad is well-versed in, and has a history in using, false-flag operations. Don’t assume that everything you are hearing/reading (from either side of the conflict) is the real truth.

    An important issue here is that a variety of views can be freely expressed, especially in complex situations like the one mentioned .

    Donna, if you think a viewpoint or commentary is the “truth” you have much to learn and obviously been in a cave on the Moon. They no more tell the truth then did President Nixon or President Obama. Lies and deception are a way to convince the reader of a point of view and it is up to you to reserch the “truth”, if you can find it. Please take your head out of the sand and do your own digging and not depend on these spin doctors.
