Editor of the Reformer:
A recent letter to the editor (Oct. 29) about your editorial concerning Prime Minister Netanyahu cannot go unanswered. It is pure Israeli propaganda. The root evil in Israel/Palestine is Israel's brutal occupation of all of Palestine, an illegal occupation that has been declared a violation of international law numerous times by the United Nations. This occupation is designed to forever subdue Palestinians and deprive them of their right to their own state and government. It treats Palestinians as a second-class people without rights and is akin to the former Apartheid regime in South Africa. Is it any wonder that a people without hope will resort to blind violence to rebel against the daily violence meted out against them by the occupying power?
