In the July 13 story on the suicide bombing in Israel, which killed three Israelis, you include information about Israeli deaths going back to 2001. Nowhere is there mention that Palestinians have also been killed during this period -- in far greater numbers. In fact, in the current intifada about 250 Palestinians were killed before a single suicide bombing occurred in Israel.
Most recently, since the truce was declared on Feb. 25, approximately 40 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces, and 400 were injured. Although it is important to report on Israeli deaths, your readers need to learn the whole story -- not one half of it.
