Not so positive

February 28, 2009

After suggesting that the female tennis players should have boycotted the tournament once Dubai refused entry to Israel's Shahar Peer, Kurt Streeter [Feb. 22] went on to write: "Mind you, I'm no fan of Israel's heavy-handed hammering of Gaza. But in almost all cases, I think ordinary citizens such as Peer shouldn't have to pay for the misguided hubris of their nation's leaders."

Not even a suggestion that if Gaza hadn't spent the past several years firing thousands of missiles at civilians in Israel, Israel would have had no reason to retaliate against Hamas.

Frankly, my idea of misguided hubris is a second-rate sportswriter masquerading as a political pundit.
