Thank You, Why No in mainstream press in small town USA?

Reader comment on item: U.S. to Israel: Do As We Say ...

Submitted by Malkah (United States), Jan 19, 2004 at 18:00

I have tried to tell otherwise intelligent people this information for years and they believe all the fairy tales of Palestine with the horrific results of false peace. My response to some new-age thinking, "just imagine happy scenes and stop all the fighting," is that false peace at any price (Israel as the sacrificial lamb) is not true peace. That Israel is like a rape victim who is blamed for defending themselves. I do not see such information in mainstream newspapers and live in Chicago. Editorial columnists may come close yet to see such articles on the front page of any newspaper around here has truly escaped my attention. I want to believe the truth is published more, yet want to know why it is absent from public view? And is "higher academia" heavily funded by terroist organizations?

May you be blessed and protected in your defense of the truth. Now I know why a nonprofit I established a few years ago, to break down the barriers of prejudice, has met with such hostile opposition by some interesting sources. Truth is evidently very scary for people who need to find the scapegoat, why not pick on the cosmic favorite, Israel? I have come to believe and tell others, Israel is a test for the world. How humanity likes to pick on those who if left alone just want to be able to exist. How a postage stamp size land can incite the misunderstanding and be targeted by so many. If the country loses its sovereign rights, the wave of hatred will cross the oceans. Thank you so much for what you are doing.
