Photos of limo crash upsetting to families
I would like to voice my opinion about the limo disaster from two years ago.
Is there a reason to keep showing pictures and videos of the limo every time something new comes up about the case?
Do you as a newspaper and all the TV news channels that report some new development in the case really have to remind all the families affected by it?
If it were my son or daughter that was killed in something as horrible as this, I would raise holy hell about it, because I wouldn’t need to be reminded.
My cousin lost two sons and a daughter-in-law, and she still grieves every day. I’m sure she doesn’t need a reminder. It’s bad enough that the defense lawyers are talking about a plea bargain or probation which is ridiculous, that should never be entertained.
Give him his trial, even if it needs to be virtual, and be done with it already, so maybe some of these families can have some kind of justice served. They are in their own prison, not being able to see the ones that were taken from them ever again.
If you as a newspaper and all the TV news outlets had any kind of compassion for them at all, you would stop with the pictures and videos you all display for your “scoop.” The way life is valued these days, it would be nice to show some respect to the surviving families.
Israel is not really interested in peace
The Gazette has published news and opinion columns about the recent agreements between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
Words like historic, unprecedented, and spectacular are being used.
Nonsense. Israel could have made a warm peace with all Arab and predominantly Muslim nations any time over the past 70 years by signing and implementing a genuine peace treaty with the Palestinians, whom Israel continues to cruelly divide and abuse on a massive scale, with U.S. government support.
Since 2002, Israel has ignored (rejected) the 22-nation Arab Peace Initiative of durable peace with normalized relations in exchange for full Israeli withdrawal from all the Palestinian Territories occupied since 1967, justice for Palestinian refugees, and a Palestinian nation in the West Bank and Gaza, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Sadly, Israel would rather continue confiscating Palestinian land and water than make peace with the world.
Enlarging Israel and preventing Palestinian refugees from returning home remain vital to Israeli leaders and U.S. Zionists.
Israel is a vast laboratory of military and police surveillance and repression technologies and techniques, battle tested on Palestinians, that it will now sell to Arab governments to more effectively control and monitor their populations.
The United States will gear up for increased weapons sales. Real peace leads to reductions in tensions and permanently reduced military expenditures, something U.S., Israeli and UAE leaders oppose.
