Wrong to sympathize with Hamas mother [Letter]

June 17, 2014

I am appalled that The Sun chose a photo of a mother of an accused Hamas terrorist concerned about her son's arrest related to the kidnapping of three teens in Israel ("Israeli forces expand search for 3 teens to Ramallah," June 15). The photo portrays her in a sympathetic manner. It would be more appropriate to show the anguish of the mothers of the kidnapped teens as well as the support and prayers of the nation of Israel.

However, The Sun chose to show sympathy to Hamas, a terrorist organization with a stated goal of murdering of all the Jews in Israel one that exhibits hatred of the West. At least the mother with the Hamas son knows where her son is, something the Israeli mothers don't.
