Thanks for your article. It clearly sums up the discrepancy between what actually happens and how it is interpreted – not just by The Jewish Week.
Almost as distressing as the constant ill treatment of Palestinians are the helpless and convoluted attempts to diminish or equate, which only serve to lessen my sympathy for Israeli victims. I am completely aware of this, I deeply regret it, and it should serve as a lesson to The Jewish Week: do not apologise, rationalise or diminish Israel’s role in oppression, illegal occupation, ethnic cleansing, discrimination, daily humiliation and violent acts against Palestinians. It does not help. We want it reported as it is, on both sides. The backlash caused by distortion will harm Jews, so cut it out.
