Shades of Israeli terrorism
Dear Editor: Israeli terrorism is both very evident and very quietly evident. It is very evident in that it occupies Palestinian lands brazenly, and has for more than 50 years.
And it is very quietly evident in that many little acts of terrorism happen every day in out-of-the-way corners that make no news or no waves. Fields and orchards are bulldozed, or farmers cannot harvest them for fear of being shot. Food supplies are limited or curtailed, or made too expensive to purchase, resulting in malnutrition.
Now, it is happening every day. Factories and warehouses are blown up in case they might produce or hide weapons.
Individual Palestinians are harassed, humiliated , beaten, tormented , tortured, imprisoned or killed every day. And all this happens out of sight of the world, the victims unreported , their anguish unnoticed, yet the agony enduring a lifetime, for those who survive. This is terrorism.
