Your front page article in the Jan. 9 edition, “Focusing the camera on a rite of passage” quotes Patrick Stewart, the filmmaker as follows: “There is no counterpoint – this is the view of the Palestinians. The other side of the story is told every day.” I have no issue with his documentary that exclusively tells the Palestinian side but only with his statement that “the other side of the story is told every day.”
His assertion that Israel's side is reported every day is unfounded. This statement leads the readers to believe the Palestinian side is rarely reported. Watch CNN, read the N.Y. Times or other news outlets and decide for yourself.
