Letter: Sturm column was spot on

Sturm column was spot on

I thought Melanie Sturm’s commentary (July 31, The Aspen Times) on the Hamas-Israeli confrontation was an accurate, realistic assessment of the current situation in light of the historical events that precipitated this conflict. One cannot ignore Hamas’ history in deed and word towards Israel by simply citing Henry Siegman’s interview comments nor by ignoring the threat to Israel’s existence in the 1948, 1967 and 1973 wars.
