Jim Stoffels' In Focus column on the July 20 Forum page was a little one-sided. We do feel sorry for the innocent people on both side of this war.
The United Nations gave land to the Jews in 1948 to start their own country, and ever since, the Arab nations have been trying to stop them.
If the Arab extremists would stop, the war would be over. This conflict will not end until Arabs around the world condemn the violence. Next time, Mr. Stoffels should tell the entire truth from both sides. Homemade rockets, are you kidding me?
