Here is an email I just sent to Jodi Rudoren of the NY Times:
In your news story today, "50 Days of War Leave Israelis and Palestinians Only More Entrenched," you wrote: "The vast majority of Israeli Jews want, most of all, to feel safe, physically, and to secure the future of Israel as a Jewish democracy."
No mention of the fact that Israel occupies and represses the Palestinians, and that this might have something to do with Palestinian attacks that make Israelis feel unsafe.
No mention of the fact that the Palestinians, who by orders of magnitude are far more threatened than the Israelis, no doubt also want to feel safe and have a democracy of their own.
No mention of the fact that the Israeli Palestinians--let alone the residents of the occupied territories to whom Israel has no intention of granting democracy--have a problem with the concept of a "Jewish democracy."
No mention of the fact that even democracy for the Jews--if they are "leftists," of course--is increasingly threatened.
In short, That one sentence is either breathtakingly stupid, or a piece of shameless Hasbara worthy of Netanyahu himself.
1944: "The vast majority of Germans want, most of all, to feel safe."
