Letter: Why the wall exists

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I agree with Robert Azzi when he says that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there are competing narratives (Sunday Monitor Forum, July 27). I also support the creation of a Palestinian state and am critical of the Israeli government’s actions that impede such a creation.

Letter: An important contribution

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Thank you for printing Robert Azzi’s contribution to the discussion on the situation in Israel/Palestine (Sunday Monitor Forum, July 27).

Letter: Board ignored voters
