A Critique of Israel and Hamas

By Joe Murphy, Town Bank

To the Editor:

The Middle East has had a history of conflict for centuries. Picking sides, Israel or Hamas. My answer is neither. I seek the sides of peace backed by truth. I’ll be writing critiques of both Israel and Hamas. I won’t take sides.

I cannot support a country that uses its military to commit acts of military terrorism such as bombing refugee camps, hospitals and relief convoys, nor do I accept the rationalization that justifies killing children, women and elderly. No god justifies such behavior.

I see the war as a territorial grab with religious reasoning. The worse wars are the religious backed land acquisitions. I advise the “PRO” sides to put on their adult pants, then meet to devise a peace plan to end the violence and death.
