Stone throwing is not a 'hobby'

How bad was that puff piece Jodi Rudoren wrote about 'Palestinian' stone throwers? Here's Israel's Ambassador to the US responding in a letter to the editor. I am guessing that he really want to respond via an op-ed and the Times wouldn't publish it.
While Palestinian protagonists are described in detail, their Israeli victims are largely dehumanized “settlers” — no name, age or gender. And for the record, all Israelis, irrespective of residence and ethnicity, Jews and Arabs, drive with yellow plates.
The article could have added another chart: the names of Israelis who have been killed or permanently maimed by rock throwers and the time they have spent hospitalized. One of the names would be Adele Biton, a 2-year-old seriously wounded by a stone in March.
The article notes that Palestinian youths attack Israelis “because their brothers and fathers did.” By breaking that pattern, Palestinian leaders can prepare their people for peace.
You really think Jodi didn't try to slant that article? Come on...
