Letter: Pro-Israel bias will backfire

Posted

To the editor of THE EAGLE:

I see. Any piece that hints at some sympathy for the Palestinians is not getting published. No balance on this issue, only sympathy for Israel like that lugubrious piece by the Williams College chaplain last week ("Imagining peace," August 5 op-ed.).

Please note that anti-Semitism is alive and well again in Europe. See Roger Cohen’s piece in the August 3 New York Times. And I’m guessing we’re going to see a shift in that direction here with the kind of uncritical pro-Israel reporting we’re getting.
