I was dismayed to see a large photograph of Palestinians and a sympathetic caption in The Dispatch once again (“On the run,” Associated Press photo, Saturday). Under the leadership of Hamas, a terrorist group with the stated intention of destroying Israel, they have sent rockets and fire-kites that have burned many acres of Israel. Do you remember that Israel gave Gaza to them in return for peace. Where is the peace?

 Where is support for Israel, a democracy and our friend? By supporting the terrorists, we give them hope, thereby prolonging the day they will seek peace.

Israel is a shining star offering hope and prosperity for its citizens and their neighbors.
