Just unjust

  • February 1, 2024

Your description of Israeli actions in your Jan. 21 editorial “On the side of real justice” leaves a lot to be desired. What happened on Oct. 7 — and I certainly do not condone it — did not happen in a vacuum. Yet there is no sense of any understanding of what has been happening in Israel and Palestine for many years.

Your criticism of Michael Blair, moderator of the United Church of Canada, “in this time of prayer for Christian Unity,’” is a criticism of someone who joins many in calling on the government to take decisive actions for justice and peace. The editorial is certainly not a piece of “real justice.”
