Israel responsible for violence in Gaza It is sad but hardly surprising to see President Obama, Sen. Charles Schumer and Gov. Andrew Cuomo defending the latest Israeli rampage in Palestine by asserting that Israel has the right to defend itself (with U.S.-supplied weapons) without also saying Palestinians have the same right.

The Israelis have agreed to 4 separate cease fires while Palestine rejected them. The Jews live with tunnels being drilled under their city by the Muslims and having their citizens kidnapped and murdered. They spend every day having missiles fired into their country, over 1600 so far this year alone. You sir need your head examined. Please contact me personally and I will pay for your flight to Gaza if you are willing to go there and have a conversation with Hamas and ISIS, you can tell them how great they are.

The letter from Tom Ellis is another in a long line of his anti Israel diatribes. Every time tempers flare in the middle east, Mr. Ellis submits one of his letters that bash Israel and he conveniently makes Hamas sound like innocent little angels that have done no wrong. I wonder what strategy Mr. Ellis would advocate for the United States if another country or force started lobbing thousands of missiles into our country. Wake up, Mr. Ellis, and stop being an apologist for Hamas, a group of terrorist thugs who have no interest in making peace.

Why is it that all the stockade residents want to bring up the comments by UNION COLLEGE PROFESSOR John Garver but seem to be deaf to all the studies that say otherwise. I suppose he is the one that said the planes from Stratton ANG are shaking your houses off their foundations. Maybe all the stockade residents need to realize their buildings are very old and in need of expensive repairs and they live in a flood plain. They also need to realize that they don't own the riverfront and others would like to enjoy it. Maybe we should have an annual festival like Tuesday in the Park in Riverfront Park for ALL city residents to come discover it's beauty. The rest of the city needs to know that the only city residents they are concerned with are themselves...
