Re "What Makes Chechen Women So Dangerous?" (NYT, Op-Ed, March 31)

To The Editor, 

Re "What Makes Chechen Women So Dangerous?" (Op-Ed, March 31): While purporting to be an explanation of terrorism by Chechens, the article is nothing more than a barely disguised effort to criticize Israel and the simple desire of Jews everywhere to have a safe place to live and have families. One has only to replace "Chechnya" with "West Bank" - which the authors themselves seem to suggest- and "Moscow" with "Jerusalem", to see the clear anti-Semitic nature of the article. With the New York Times publishing such excuses for terrorism in its Op-Ed pages, does Israel have no friends left anywhere?
