Dear Editor:
In your editorial {"They elected Hamas" Jan.27}. You, quite rightly, state that any party interested in peace in Mideast conflict must renounce violence and terrorism, and you, quite rightly, call on Hamas to do so. How about extending the same call to Israel to renounce its acts of violence and state terrorism, including extra-judicial assassination, bombing and murdering civilians using B16's, home demolitions and other acts of violence against Palestinians?
