Ed Rossi: Cartoon offensive; report the news

I am not Jewish or an Israeli, but I found your cartoon on Aug. 8 offensive and lacking in fact. Please note the following:

• Hamas fired first, then launched thousands more rockets at Israeli civilians.
• Hamas dug tunnels for terror activities.
• Hamas puts their civilians in harm’s way.
• Hamas has stated its purpose is to kill Jews.
• Hamas rejected or broke numerous cease-fires.

I hope, by now, you are getting the idea. The Israelis have done more than is required to warn Palestinian civilians away from target areas. In the future when you report the news, report it all.

Ed Rossi, Merced
