Criticizing and demonizing

Dear Editor:The distortion of the truth by leaving out information so there is a lack of context; that contributes to painting a different overall picture. Sue Gray wrote that Israel attacked Syria, Jordan and Egypt and took their lands. She forgot to mention that these three countries amassed tens of thousands of troops with the intention of destroying Israel before any Arab land was taken in this war. So the Israelis did a pre-emptive attack for survival. They did take over Arab lands but gave back the strategic Sinai Peninsula in exchange for a peace treaty with Egypt and has had a successful peace with Jordan. Syria along with other Arab and Fundamentalist Islamic states still plan to wipe Israel off the Earth as they have many times stated.Jerome MarksBasalt
