Nothing Noble in Murder of Innocents

June 16, 2002

The Times appears to have solidified an editorial policy to glorify, at every opportunity, the endless stream of Palestinian terrorists who have "no choice" but to murder innocent civilians ("Guide for Bombers Maps His Methods," June 12). Does The Times truly believe that the warped mentality of a chauffeur for would-be terrorists is more newsworthy than the stories of the grandparents and grandchildren whose lives are stolen, with each bomb blast, by the terrorist murderers who pretend to be working for a noble cause?

Palestinians who are being killed consist, in large part, of individuals who have committed an act of murder, are preparing to commit an act of murder or are killed by other Palestinians who suspect them of complicity with the Israelis. The Jews who are being killed by the Palestinians are people as innocent as those who were working in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11.
