It is a really good letter, especially in attacking Steve Erlanger who wrote the sob-piece on the suicide bomber's family. I probably would have made it sharper but it's more than okay.
Here, read it:-
Those who are in real shock, reeling from the terror attack in Tel Aviv, are the 20 Israeli victims and their families, who inexplicably are absent from your Jan. 20 news article "Into the West Bank Abyss: From Student to Suicide Bomber," which singularly focuses on the terrorist's family.
This is a bewildering attempt to "explain" a premeditated, cold-blooded bombing.
While the terrorist himself is not available to describe what motivated him to go to Tel Aviv to kill Israelis, his family considers him a "martyr."
When his brother declares, "This is an honor, not just to the family of Antar, but to the whole neighborhood," it is clear that this Palestinian family proudly supports what he did.
Indeed, suicide bombers are glorified in Palestinian society, and their families receive remuneration for the murderous deeds.
Meanwhile, all Israelis are left to wonder, five months after Israel took the courageous step of transferring the entire Gaza Strip to the Palestinian Authority, when the Palestinian leadership will finally confront the terrorist organizations and put them out of business so that Israelis and Palestinians together can chart a path to peace and security.
