Unpublished letter to NYTimes editor

to the editor of the NY times

It is nice to read Ethan Bronner’s positive piece “Signs of Hope emerges in West Bank” (NYT July 17). However, Bronner makes a mistake in the order of things. He states ” For the first time since the second Palestinian uprising broke out in late 2000, leading to terrorist bombings and fierce Israeli countermeasures.” The intifada was a protest to the decades old foreign military occupation. This protest was met with fierce Israeli measures which led to further Palestinian bombings. The intifada were put down harshly but causing many civilian (including children) fatalities. But unlike the Iranian government harsh response, the world didn’t oppose the israelis.
