The January 9 “Free Palestine from Israeli rule” Other Voices column was filled with conjecture, misinformation, and the demonization of Israel. The author calls the Israelis despots, genocidal, Jewish Zionists, and the world’s oppressors while the Palestinians are described as unarmed, unprotected citizens. These words only serve to stir up bigotry towards Israel. The anti-Semitism of the past now masquerades as anti-Zionism.
