Letter to the Editor: The Goal Should Be Telling the Truth

The New York Times

January 13, 2009

By Ramon Greenberg

To the editor:

You present a clear discussion of readers' concerns about coverage of the Israeli-Hamas conflict. But when you quote a reader as asking, "Where are the pro-Israel articles?," you seem to accept "pro-Israel" to mean those who support the Israeli actions. I suggest that this needs further thought. The term has been appropriated by Aipac and its supporters without much questioning.

One should consider that the expansion of settlements, the failure to remove them, the blockade of Gaza by land, sea and air, the taking of Palestinian lands by building a wall and so on are really anti-Israeli and actually endanger Israel by arousing hatred and undermining the possibility of a true peace settlement.

Thus groups like Brit Tzedek, J Street, Jewish Voice for Peace, Meretz and Tikkun (to name a few) might be considered the true "pro-Israel" forces.

I hope that The Times and its readers carefully reconsider the use of the term "pro-Israel."
