Israel is only defending itself [Letter]

July 19, 2014

So not enough Israelis have been killed for Israel to have a right to respond? Is that what you are saying ("Conflict over Gaza is one-sided," July 16)?

If your neighbors were constantly firing rockets at you and their charter was to wipe you off the face of the earth, I think your response would be no different than Israel's. This is the basis of the problem. Everything else is rhetoric.
