    Jules Rabinís predictably anti-Israel commentary (Dec. 16) makes a hideous comparison between Gazaís Hamas terrorists, committed to the annihilation of every man, woman and child in Israel, and the Jewish heroes of the Warsaw ghetto, who fought with dignity simply to live another day.

    As to Mr. Rabinís lament that the death counts in the Gaza conflicts have been lopsided, well, then, hereís a solution heíll no doubt approve: Israel should stop protecting her citizens from the thousands of lethal missiles Gazans launch at them and, instead, should use her citizens as human shields, as is done by Hamas. Then more Israelis will die, and Mr. Rabin will be happier.
