Unfair to Israel
Re “Israel to free prisoners in show of support for Abbas,” June 26
The offhand reference in this article to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert having “resisted entering into substantive talks aimed at settling the Middle East conflict” was shocking. Palestinian leaders continue to condone (in the case of Fatah) or promote (Hamas) continued attacks on Israel, showing no willingness to accept Israel’s secure existence. Against that background, to say that Israel is the party resisting substantive peace talks is completely false.
