Columnist offers inaccurate portrayal of Middle East conflict, reader says

I usually enjoy the columns by Effie Caldarola, but the one in the Aug. 29 issue of The Criterion made me furious.

The column is about her general dislike of bumper stickers, and her positive reaction to the one saying: “If you love Jesus, seek justice. Any fool can honk.”

She then proceeds to list many injustices in our world, among them “thousands of innocent residents of Gaza suffering the violence of a cruel war pursued by two side who pay little heed to civilian casualties.”

If you want to preach justice, be informed about the facts first.

Do not equate the murderous Hamas, that uses human shields to protect its missiles, with Israel, which goes to unheard of lengths to warn and protect the civilian population from harm.
