|Clueless Tom Friedman of the New York Times|
Do Israel's Defensive Measures Undermine Peace? -Dan Margalit
In his Dec. 7 column, New York Times writer Thomas Friedman made the strange claim that Israel's separation fence and its Iron Dome air defense system are hindrances to Israel, because they allow our leadership to feel like it doesn't have to make efforts to advance peace.
Friedman's claim is perplexing, as both the fence and Iron Dome are defensive in nature. They save lives.
By this logic, the prompt medical treatment of terror victims by Magen David Adom ambulances must undermine peace as well.
