  1. Dear Respected Dean, I am so sick of taking the blame for the corrupt Hamas putting its rockets in non-belligerent areas, and the AP living cheek by jowl with the Hamas political offices, and Hamas PR reps crying “…we are tired of their Judaizing…” to justify the rocket attacks claiming it is Israel’s FAULT for the destruction of residential towers, I could spit. (Sorry my harsh words).
    >>As you know I am a local Jewish Democratic volunteer, but Mr. Biden is caving to our Left wing. I really believe Israel’s side of things is as truthful as it gets, while Hamas’ denials stretch credulity — just a tad.
