I just received the following email from an LA Times staff member:
Dear Mr. Al-Dabbagh
The Los Angeles Times plans to publish your letter, perhaps tomorrow. Thank you for your submission.
Here’s the letter:
It is frustrating to portray Israel’s aggression against Palestinians as a “war” between Israel and Hamas. Israel’s recent attack on Gaza is a continuation of over 60 years of ethnic cleansing. What Palestinians want is freedom from an illegal, murderous occupation. Only when the occupation ends, will Palestinian resistance end.
