Regarding Richard Cohen’s Nov. 20 op-ed column, “The callousness of Hamas”:

How does this sentence point to anything but media bias: “Israel cares more about sparing innocent lives — including those of Palestinians — than does Hamas”? As I write, the number of killed is now 130 Palestinians to four Israelis. Where is the caring in that? Check and you’ll find that the casualties have always been similarly warped.
