From Jagjit Singh, Los Altos, CA
Over 8,000 people have been killed, including half of them being children. Mothers write their loved ones’ names on their hands in a desperate attempt to identify their children, fearing that they may be killed by the 24-hour relentless bombing. This situation makes our nation complicit in mass murder. Mr. President, you seem to have abandoned the valuable teachings of the Bible, which emphasize equal rights and freedom from oppression for all people. There’s a puzzling disconnect between claiming reverence for the unborn child while endorsing the massive killing of Palestinian children.
Mr. President, there’s a disturbing double standard when you denounce Hamas’s actions but express no remorse for the long-standing formalized slaughter. Your actions sow the seeds of hatred for the future. Your evident bias is a welcome gift to the Russians. You can no longer accuse others of barbarity when you are guilty of hypocrisy and barbarism. You haven’t even called for a ceasefire, allowing the butchery to continue.
