This morning’s horrific suicide bombing on a Jerusalem bus certainly lends credence to the Israeli government’s case that the security fence is valid and necessary.
But readers of the Chicago Tribune don’t even hear that case. The Tribune has not one, but three different columns arguing against the fence, available to see now online:
– Gary Fields calls the fence illegal and strongly implies that Israelis always intended to control the Palestinians however they could.
– Marda Dunsky, a journalism professor, argues that Israeli occupation has converted Palestinian towns into prisons and turned Israeli public places into “cantons of fear.”
– And this one was written by the mayor of Qalqilyah.
Where are all of these columns located in the Tribune? The Perspectives section, of course.
Unfortunately, only one perspective is actually made available to Chicago Tribune readers.
