Cartoon in bad taste

To the Editor:

April 2’s “Sketch View” political cartoon about us giving Palestinians some paltry aid was hypocritical and in bad taste.

I can imagine the consequences of you publishing a cartoon of a fat Netanyahu accepting the $3 billion no-questions-asked yearly dole we give Israel and all the extras like paying for Iron Dome to defend her borders while our own are as porous as a sieve.

It looks like we, the righteous Christians who, in the name of God, decimated the native “savages” to take their land, cheated the Hawaiians out of theirs and are helping the Israelis do the same to the Palestinians.

Our loyalty to Israel and the degrading of Palestinians makes us feel good because the land of Israel was given her by God, although they had to kill the Canaanites to take it.
