J.Post July 21: Serial Pessimist

Sir, – For the sake of honesty and accuracy, let’s set the record straight: Gershon Baskin has not been an optimist since he started writing for The Jerusalem Post (“What gives me hope,” Encountering Peace, July 19).

Baskin has consistently predicted gloom and grief for every and all Israeli peace plan that failed to conform to his myopic views.

The real optimists are those who remain true to the Zionist dream and continue to build and create despite the hatred, terror and death that have characterized the response to all our goodwill gestures.
