To the editor: This is in response to the column published in the Tuesday, May 25, Standard-Journal by Amy Goodman/Denis Moynihan entitled “Joe Biden’s hit-and-run on the Palestinian people.”

Anyone who looks beneath the PR veneer of the recent conflict initiated by Gaza will realize there is no need for sympathy for the Palestinians. One only needs to ask, “Who is it that sends thousands of missiles against its neighbor? Who is it that uses children and hospitals and apartment buildings as a living shield to protect its militants? Who would rather use foreign aid to buy missiles and build tunnels to infiltrate Israel rather than use that aid to help its own people? And how does one have honest dialogue with a group whose only objective is your own annihilation?”
