    Israel has a right to defend itself [Letter]
    Commentator Adil E. Shamoo overlooks two crucial points necessary to understanding the current Israel-Hamas conflict ("Israel's unjust war," Aug. 1). First, Hamas under its charter and by the statements of its leaders is committed to Israel's...

    Thriller author Fesperman explores capacity of drone warfare, spying
    It was the eeriness of the situation that struck Baltimore writer Dan Fesperman. Drone pilots for the Air Force would spend weeks watching what amounted to a real-life silent movie of a small town thousands of miles away — all the while plotting the...
  • Hamas' terror is dwarfed by Israel's [Letter]

    Hamas' terror is dwarfed by Israel's [Letter]
    We read of Israel describing another "terror attack" against its citizens, but why do Americans conclude that Israel itself doesn't practice terror? Because Israeli military spokesmen say it doesn't? ("Digger rams Jerusalem Bus," August 4). Contrary...

  • Rocket attacks require response [Letter]

    Rocket attacks require response [Letter]
    Letter writer Bruce Knauff, though well-intentioned, misses the point of terror ("Conflict over Gaza is one-sided," July 16). Although Hamas has been thwarted in killing and maiming more Israelis, that is not their intent. On the contrary, as they...
  • Blame leaders on both sides for Gaza conflict [Letter]

    Blame leaders on both sides for Gaza conflict [Letter]
    I live in Israel and basically agree with what letter writer Bruce Knauff says regarding the Israeli offensive against Gaza ("Conflict over Gaza is one-sided," July 16). However, I also feel that the issues at stake here are far more complex than the...
  • Sympathy for Palestinians, not for Hamas [Letter]

    Sympathy for Palestinians, not for Hamas [Letter]
    I have always found it easy to look at Israel as the bad guy ("Conflict over Gaza is one-sided," July 16). This time, I find it hard to continue that stance. When Hamas continues to support the extinguishing of the Israeli state, I have to wonder who is...
