You may have a point when you write that the proposed policies of Rabbi Meir Kahane ("The Kahane Effect," editorial, Oct. 21) are so contrary to true democratic ideals that the Israeli government is justified in banning his Kach party from the government.
You may also be right when you say that Kahane has not brought out the best in some of the Israeli populace.
But your editorial fails when you once again, never to miss a chance, point a finger of blame at how Israel is handling the Arab uprising.
I don't believe anyone, including Israel, is proud of what is occurring in the West Bank. But who has a better method of dealing with these riots? Does the editorial board of The Times possess such wisdom?
