I noticed that you had two beautifully written Opinion pieces (Aug. 8) next to each
other about helping Israel — Rabbi Avi Weiss’ “Comforting The Wounded, Worrying About Family” and Francine Klagsbrun’s “Do Israelis Know How Much We Really Care?”

Regarding Editor’s column, “I Support Israel, But…’ (Aug. 8), all of you who support Israel need to recognize that there is a large and growing portion of the Jewish community that is appalled at Israel’s actions.

Regarding the online Opinion piece by Yehuda Shaul (“What Have We Become?”), about civilian deaths in Gaza: It’s easy to take the moral high ground and deplore the killing of civilians, but the writer offers no alternative. What Israel is doing is very different from what the United States and Great Britain did in World War II, because Israel is trying to minimize civilian casualties. We killed about 2 million German civilians, and another 1 million Japanese.

Netanyahu Wrong On War

Instead of carrying out a proactive vision for peace, Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu makes it very clear that “mowing the lawn” every few years —
in which innocent civilians, including many children, are killed — is an
acceptable foreign policy.

Your Editorial (“In The Words Of The Prophet,” Aug. 8) noted, “Some will say the war proved that it would be foolhardy to risk the compromises needed for a Palestinian state…”

With the tumultuous recent unfolding of world events, there runs a risk of not taking note of the retirement of Shimon Peres after decades of public service.

It is heartening and appropriate to “call a spade a spade” as Gary Rosenblatt did in his column, “New York Times Parallels Are Forced, And False” (July 18).

Sloppy And Lazy

The national and international news media, by reducing the current conflict
between the nation of Israel and the terrorist group Hamas to little more than
body count, is at best sloppy and lazy. At the median it is a collaboration
with the primitive, barbaric and atavistic terrorist murderers that Israel is
trying to protect itself from. At worst it is consistent with the vilest
forms of anti-Semitic blood libel.

Many thanks to Gary Rosenblatt for his column for his column, “New York Times’ Parallels Are Forced, And False” (July 18).

Preserving Freedom

 Regarding your ongoing coverage of the war in Gaza: I am reminded of the time in the 1940s when, as a high-school student in the Bronx, I heard and read radio and news reports (before there was TV) of how the citizens of London sat in subway stations and basements and survived the Nazi V5 rocket blitz of London with a spirit of defiance, patriotism and determination while whole neighborhoods were burned and devastated by the indiscriminate Nazi assault. Children were sent by their parents to the countryside or even sent abroad to assure their safety. At the same time, American and allied forces carpet-bombed German cities, including Berlin, and more than a million civilians in Nazi Germany and other parts of Europe were killed in the bombings. There was no United Nations to moralize about the disproportionality of those actions the allies felt necessary to shorten the war and preserve freedom for the Western world.
