N.H. Jews say “Not in My Name”

To the Editor: A letter signed by 67 Jewish residents of New Hampshire calling for a ceasefire in Gaza was delivered to the state’s U.S. Senators and Representatives today. The statement also calls for halting U.S military aid to Israel, release of hostages, and allowing humanitarian aid to be delivered in Gaza. “We, as New Hampshire Jews, are horrified by the atrocities Israel is committing in Gaza, backed by U.S. military aid. Incessant Israeli bombing and military action has killed more than 30,000 people, the majority of them women and children, and wounded tens of thousands more,” the letter begins. “These numbers don’t count many …

A Warning to Wannabe Dictators

To the Editor: Seeing the results of the Republican New Hampshire Primary and subsequent primaries, I am horrified that Republicans who voted in those States voted for Donald Trump. This means that most Republicans who voted would like to see Trump as President again—a man who has been shown to be a liar, a thief, a cheat, and a rapist, who aspires to be an authoritarian dictator on day one. He has also told us that he is a racist and a fascist. This is who the Republican party wants to represent the U.S.A. to the rest of the world??? I lived in Europe in …

He’s Got a Bad Feeling About This…

To the Editor: It’s beginning to seem almost inevitable, doesn’t it? Super Tuesday has come and gone, and the sociopathic criminal is on his way back to the White House. A bought and paid for Supreme Court and millions of—I don’t even know how to refer to them anymore—have voted to make this happen. And here’s another reality to chew on; we’re just going through the motions for the next eight months because whether he wins the popular vote by a whisker or goes down by 15 million, he will be waddling back into the Oval, fat, stupid and miserable, with his tiny little thumb …

Genocide and the Horse Race

Dear Editors, In your reply to my last letter you raised two points that I would like to address here. Responding to my assertion that the Gazette was negligent in the frequency and scope of its coverage of the ongoing U.S.-supported Israeli genocide in Gaza, you said that the Gazette could not respond to reader requests as to what should be covered. What you neglected to explain was any rationale for giving short shrift to this historic development funded in great part by our tax dollars. Do you fear being labelled anti-semitic by the pro-Israel lobby? Or do you just think the genocide is something …

Anonymous Chastisement

[To the Editor:] I am a longtime subscriber to the Gazette, living in the Boston area. It’s been disappointing to me that the Gazette has ignored the gravity of the violent atrocities committed by Hamas on October 7th, but now that you’re giving a platform for and even cheering on alternative facts, it’s time for me to say goodbye to the Gazette. In your January 12th edition, you published Will Thomas’s letter. Thomas criticized the Union Leader for publishing a letter which mentioned various references to the violent Hamas attacks without requiring the letter writer to list their sources. Thomas engaged in verbal gymnastics to …

On the U.S.-Supported Genocide in Gaza

To the Editor: I am very disappointed in the New Hampshire Gazette for not taking the genocide being perpetrated against Palestinians as seriously as is warranted. Imagine we are back in the thirties. As the Holocaust is being carried out only a few articles appear in the press about it… wait, that actually did happen. It’s horrible to see the same thing happening with Gaza accompanied by attempts by fanatic zionists and the power elite to silence or marginalize critics of Israel’s genocidal actions in which over 25,000 have already died, the majority of them women and children… i.e., civilians. One Israeli official tried to …
