LETTERS | Gaza’s woes

Palestinians continue to suffer at hands of Israel

Congratulations to Sara Roy of the Harvard Center for Middle Eastern Studies for her timely, insightful Nov. 23 op-ed (“Where’s our humanity for Gaza?”). It’s refreshing and encouraging to see a column that portrays the plight of the Palestinians.

We see the Israeli side of the longstanding land war between Israel and the Palestinians all the time. There are two sides to this conflict. Roy marshaled her facts and showed to any unbiased reader that the root cause of the conflict is Israel’s illegal occupation of Gaza for nearly half a century and its ruthless economic restrictions of the Palestinians.
