TO THE EDITOR:
The Daily Tar Heel Editorial Board's selective "critique" of Israel linked in the context of appropriate protest of murders of African Americans in the U.S. is truly shameful. Coming at the same time as the Death of Shimon Peres and right before the start of one of the holiest days of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, an opportunity to promote a message of Peace and coming together was clearly lost on your paper. (On Thursday), delegations from almost every country in the free world came to Israel to stand up for a message and vision of peace.
The State of Israel simply has tried for over 75 years to live in peace and protect its citizens from wars and rocket attacks from those who want to see her wiped off the map. Editorials that selectively target one of the great democracies in the world are flawed and dangerous.
