A June 15 letter to the editor titled “Israeli injustice” contains multiple factual inaccuracies and omissions, including the omission of the fact that the official policy of the Israeli government is a negotiated two-state solution, one for Israelis and one for Palestinians.
There has yet to be any Palestinian government in Gaza or the West Bank that has been willing to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State.
One wonders if the letter’s repetitious emphasis on a “just” settlement takes into account Israel’s border security needs.
Prime Minister Netanyahu and his government have repeatedly sought direct negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.
In contrast, the Palestinian Authority has advocated an imposed “solution” from the “international community” rather than direct negotiations.
So who exactly is seeking to avoid a negotiated settlement that recognizes the Jewish state?
