We Got Used to It

Gavriel Meir’s opinion regarding bringing home the bodies of fallen Jewish soldiers was particularly well expressed (“More Can Be Done for Missing IDF Soldiers,” March 15, Features, page 5).

However, I take umbrage at the initial sentence, “In the 2 1/2 years since Protective Edge … there’s been quiet in Israel.”

Rocks being thrown at moving cars, attempts to stab Jews, etc., isn’t “quiet.” It’s people in Israel and around the world becoming used to Arab actions that should not be acceptable, and not protesting loudly enough.

Gavriel Meir responds:

You’re right. It would have been more accurate to write “relative” quiet.

Thank you for pointing it out.
