I agree with Steven Hemmat (“Allowing diverse opinions,” Letters, Sept. 13). Why does JTNews give a floor to opinions that side with people that want to destroy the Jewish state of Israel? Palestinian leadership tried to destroy Israel even before 1948 under British rule and more so after 1948. Can anyone find a map of Israel in Palestinian school books or media?
Have you read the Hamas charter that calls for the destruction of every inch of Israel and calls explicitly for the killing of Jews? Isn’t it against the mission statement of JTNews as a Jewish newspaper?
I am surprised the JTNews didn’t find it necessary to respond nor to fix the inconsistency of the action with the JTNews mission statement.
