Guest Opinion: Barbarity On Both Sides In Middle East

- My son served in the Israeli Army in the West Bank, so for me the barbarous killings of two soldiers by a lynch mob in Ramallah made me feel the same anger that must have led Israeli Prime Minister Barak to bomb Palestinian leader Arafat’s compound in retaliation and to escalate the war against the Palestinians.
