Another war of words

Dear Editor:After a long truce, the war of words has resumed between me and the Israel apologists. The same old tactics are being applied by the same old people. First they twist my words, attack my credibility and question my motives, then they impugn the integrity of the Roaring Fork Peace Coalition, and finally I expect, they’ll try to disrupt Peace Coalition events, as they have in the past. All because I call attention to government policies that inflict violence and injustice on civilian populations. It makes one wonder – what about Israel are that they trying so hard to keep the public from knowing?I am not the voice of the Roaring Fork Peace Coalition. I am a voice for peace. As such, I will continue to speak in a “vehement tone.” My criticism of Israel’s policies might well sound “antagonistic” to those who fear the truth.In battling evil, excess is good; for he who is moderate in announcing the truth is presenting half-truth. He conceals the other half out of fear of the people’s wrath. – Kahlil GibranSince I don’t fear the people’s wrath, I’ll continue to announce the truth.Sue GrayCarbondale
