Subject: "Arafat the Monster"

One unfamiliar with Middle Eastern history would get the impression from Jeff Jacoby's rant, "Arafat the Monster," that Palestinian violence came out of nowhere. One would never know that it is the Israelis who are occupying foreign land. Jacoby deliberately denys the Palestinians recognition of their status as dispossessed. Thus while piously posing as honorer of the murdered, he contributes to the cycle of hatred and violence. Not that Jacobs cares, but the Globe may want to consider whether publishing unbalanced, partial views serves its own interests. It does not serve the public's.
