THERE ARE FEW san voices in modern press, but today’s Daily News editorial is one of them. Named ‘Two-state double standard: Even Israel’s peace efforts get used against it’, the piece clearly portrays the nature of many who wish to deny Israel’s its right to defend itself:

In return for envisioning "two people … side by side in amity and mutual respect," Netanyahu was branded, in far too many corners, as an obstacle to peace for placing what were called "conditions" on his offer.

Chief among them was a call for Palestinian demilitarization and "public, binding and unequivocal" Palestinian recognition thatIsraelis "the state of the Jewish people."

How dare he insist on the very survival of his country!

Sadly, comments on the piece are much less pro-Israel. Still, this editorial opinion is a great piece of work.
