Thursday’s Letters to the Editor

A modest question

EDITOR: About the photograph on Saturday’s front page of a uniformed soldier holding his weapon in his left hand and, in his right, holding up the toy he apparently liberated from the debris of the downed civilian airliner at his feet: What kind of a medal will he be awarded for this gallant action? And from whom?



Moral blur, not clarity

EDITOR: No blockade in Gaza?

Tell that to families of those killed by Israeli military when Mavi Marmara sailed towards Gaza.

Tell that to Gazans who live without fuel for electricity to clean up sewage before it goes into the Mediterranean.

Tell that to fishermen who are shot at by Israeli military within international fishing limits.

Tell that to Gazans who have poor medical treatment and physicians whose diagnostic equipment fails because repair parts can’t enter Gaza.
