Letter to the Editor: Peace Action exhibit fails to show objectivity

It is unfortunate that during a period called “CommUNITY Week” intended to bring diverse groups together, Peace Action created an exhibit clearly meant to increase rather than reduce divisiveness. Presenting the destruction of Palestinian villages by Israel in 1948 without also stating that destruction occurred on both sides as the result of a war initiated by the invasion of Israel by Eqypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan seems to be a deliberate disregard for history that is wrong in general and specifically inappropriate in an academic setting.
