Today's talking heads regularly parrot the line that Israel has the right to defend itself, as if the Palestinians occupy Israel and are dominating it with the best military in the world. Then, the undeniable implication, Israel's incursions and bombardments are "just" in other words, a "just war. " In this case, one man's "just war" is another's ethnic cleansing. Do the Palestinians have no natural right to defend themselves from the onslaught of Israel's military, from 50 years of occupation, death, poverty and despair?

A recent news brief describing how the U.S. and the United Nations urged Israel to investigate the fatal shooting of two Palestinian teens last week after footage emerged suggesting the youths posed no immediate threat to troops should come as no surprise to readers ("Video suggests youths posed no threat to Israel," May 22). This past February, Amnesty International wrote a scathing report titled "Trigger-happy Israeli army and police use reckless force in the West Bank," which accused Israeli forces of displaying a callous disregard for human life by killing dozens of Palestinian civilians, including children, in the occupied West Bank over the past three years with near total impunity.

I along with thousands of others wish to reach out to the residents who homes and belongings were devastated as a result of the horrible landslide along 26th Street in Charles Village ( "Deluge causes landslide in Charles Village, floods roadways across state," May 1). The reports indicate that the occupants in this area had been complaining for years over the weakening of this retaining wall. Unfortunately, to prove the residents' point it finally took a loud blast from Mother Nature that included more than seven inches of rain over a two-day period that literally destroyed the foundation of the whole area.

The city-owned Hilton Baltimore spent nearly all of the $2.8 million it generated in hotel occupancy taxes — money the city gave it last year to help the struggling convention center hotel make its debt payments, officials said. The hotel did return $72,000 of the tax money to city coffers. Baltimore City Finance Director Harry E. Black called it a turning point for the hotel, which at one point last year looked as if it might need even more help. The West Pratt Street hotel has lost more than $50 million since opening in 2008 as it struggled to make payments on the $301 million in tax-exempt municipal bonds issued to finance its construction.

The intertwined history of the Jewish Reches family of Mount Washington and Greenspring and the Roman Catholic Staszczak-Wrobel family of Poland is extraordinary, and extraordinarily inspiring. When family members recount it at schools, churches, synagogues - or to passengers on a sightseeing bus - it can bring tears to strangers' eyes. That history began during World War II as Germany occupied Poland and, in 1942, the Nazis resolved to make the small town of Mosciska Judenfrei - free of Jews.

Conservatives have long viewed Washington as one giant, inevitable disaster waiting to happen. For conservative political strategists, part of our job is helping to frame that eventual disaster as President Barack Obama's fault. But conservatives should resist the temptation to be too Obama-centric in their criticisms of Washington's recent scandals. Yes, a president is in charge of, and ultimately responsible for, the federal government. But while Mr. Obama may be a tempting foil in the short term, especially with midterm elections on the horizon, it's important to not lose sight of longer-term objectives.

My business is located at 309 Main St., in Laurel. Outback Leather is a one-stop leather shop. We do everything from custom fitting boots and saddles, to the horse and rider, to while-you-wait shoe repair. Outback Leather has been on Main St. for over 20 years, 15 years in the formally Gayer's Saddlery Building. I just wanted to thank the Laurel Leader for its article, "20th century marathons found a starting line in Laurel" (April 4). It was very generous of the Leader to put a big picture of my building that covers almost half the page, and then give credit to another business, instead of a business that has been running for 20 years, as the building in the background.

One Harford County firefighter suffered burns and another became ill while combating a house fire Saturday night in the 1700 block of Harbinger Trail, Edgewood. The incident was reported at about 8 p.m. at a two-story, single family home, according to fire officials. Initial response came from the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company, along with the Abingdon Fire Company, Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company and the Aberdeen Proving Ground Fire Department. Fire officials thought there may have have been one person inside, so firefighters entered the house with hoses and began extinguishing fire on both floors.
