99. Resistance fighters

Voicer Charles Gelb's letter [98] is an insult to the intelligence of the readers. What do rock-throwing Palestinian youths have to do with Jews who were displaced from Palestine in the days of the Romans, or the 6 million Jews who perished in Germany? Is Mr. Gelb trying to tell us that because of what the Jews went through, they are entitled to oppress another people? All the Palestinian youths are doing is resisting an occupation by the fourth most powerful army in the world. It's David and Goliath in reverse.
