In Response to an Op-Ed Piece by Salim Muwakkil
by Cindy Levitt

Sent to the Chicago Tribune on April 23, 2020 in response to an op-ed piece by Salim Muwakkil.

Salim Muwakkil's column, "Biased Coverage Prolongs Conflict" on April 23, 2001 is right on target.  In attempting to educate people about the truth of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict I also advocate that people look outside the U.S. media.  I find it curious that within Israel there is much more realistic and accurate coverage than there is here.  We are complicit in perpetuating the misinformation which leads to a distortion of the human rights abuses and violations of international law occuring every day.  As an American Jew trying to find the truth and to speak out against the military occupation I would like to see more truth telling here.
