Letter: Cartoon doesn’t help understanding of Gaza
First Published Jul 22 2014 08:21 am • Last Updated Jul 22 2014 08:21 am

I am a visitor to the Salt Lake City area, and I was shocked and appalled at the editorial cartoon on the front page this morning (Sunday, July 20).

It completely ignores that Palestinians/Hamas/PLO have repeatedly sent suicide bombers into Israel to blow up buses and cafés.

It ignores the thousands of rockets fired into Israel over the years.

It ignores that various Palestinian governments have refused peace agreements, and that Hamas’ stated goal is to destroy Israel.

Israel is far from perfect. But one-sided propaganda. — cartoon or otherwise — does nothing to help understand the complexity of this conflict.
