Don't blame Israelis

November 19, 2012 

Today's article in The Bee says "Israel begins Gaza offensive," (Nov. 15, Page A-9).

Well, you have done it again. The Hamas-led Palestinian state lobs over 150 rockets into Israel within a 72 hour period, but one has to read down to understand the reason for the offensive.

Most people read only the headlines and maybe the first paragraph. How about a headline such as "Israel responds to massive rocket attack by Palestinians," thus giving the casual reader truer facts.

The news should be fair to both parties.
