Dear Friend,

In just a three-day period, over 20 opinion pieces appeared in every newspaper I review about the assassination of Sheik Yassin. They expressed no remorse at his assassination, but uniformly felt that it was a mistake because it is bound to accelerate the spiral of violence and revenge. Included here are the ten I consider best written and most distinctive in order of preference; I especially commend the first one.

As usual, let me know either if you want to suggest additional names to add to our list or if you want your name removed.
