I take strong exception to both the substance of and the choice to print your editorial (July 24), "Israel's Selective Justice." Your editorial is yet another prime example of the double standard to which Israel seems always to be held in comparison with its Arab and Muslim neighbors.
Israel prosecutes its own citizens for unlawful actions against Arabs, and sentences them to prison terms, while Arab terrorists dedicated to Israel's destruction receive effective pardons through lopsided prisoner trades with its adversaries.
Furthermore, it is well known that Arab and Muslim enemies of Israel sanction and encourage terrorist actions against Israeli citizens, while never holding them accountable for their actions under their own various legal systems.
While The Times should be criticizing this benign treatment of terrorists against Israel by these enemy countries, it instead has chosen to castigate Israel for inconsistent or lenient sentencing of its own citizens, through a democratic judicial process unheard of in the Arab world.
