Catching the Javelin

Published: Sunday, Aug. 3, 2014 - 9:07 pm

Re Rob Rogers' Sunday cartoon (July 27): Sunday's Rob Rogers' cartoon implicitly accuses Israel of a "heinous and cowardly act," for its response to the reported 2,450 rockets indiscriminately fired by Hamas into its civilian population. Applying Rogers' logic, one would therefore have to conclude that the RAF bombing of German cities in retaliation for the Nazi blitzkrieg of London and Coventry was also a heinous and cowardly act. If Israel continues to be subjected to such malicious attacks for defending itself, one could foresee the liberal media calling for a new Summer Olympics event specially created for Jewish athletes. It would be called, "Catching the Javelin."
