Wow. Why is there never any op-ed or blog post at the NYT by a Jewish resident of a community in Judea and Samaria, explaining his life and why he/she thinks there are legal, historical, security rights for Jews to reside there? Or that treat the question why were Jews being terrorized before 1967 when there was no "occupation" or any "settlements" constructed? Or that ask why were Arabs engaged in ethnic cleansing of Jews from their homes of centuries in the country like Hebron, Nablus, Gaza, etc., even before a state was created in 1948? Maybe, just maybe, there's another side, one reasonable, cogent and yes, legal, that justifies my residency in Shiloh but the NYTimes never allows a fair platform? Why must there be 2 Arabs states in the former historical "Palestine", both with no Jews allowed, but Israel must permit its Arabs to stay? Why are Jews evacuated with no peaceful results (Disengagement) but that policy is still to be pursued?
Maybe something is wrong here that needs to be clarified, discussed and debated but only the Arab side is offered services of a platform such as this?
Here at the NYTimes, here, which published this: The Folly of Israel’s Settlement Policy By RAJA SHEHADEH.
And now, belatedly, it is up here.
My second comment.
