Israel's policies in the territories

Regarding the article, "Barbed Wire, Bullets Mark Israeli Push in West Bank," June 13: Except for minor exceptions, the article is written from the Palestinian point of view. Almost all the sources are Palestinian. This is very important because this results in a one-sided perspective.The author did not interview one official from the Israeli government, military, or police. The intifadah is where the real violence is going on - and it's Palestinian violence. The settlers carry guns for defensive, not offensive, reasons. The general media's use of the term "occupied" is a misnomer. There are many people who feel that Israel's presence in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza is both right and just. There are areas to be negotiated - let the media try to present a more-balanced historical view. Moses M. Twersky, Brookline, Mass.
