Regarding your picture on page A5 (Sept. 30) of the Israeli soldier and the
Palestinian on the Temple Mount - that Palestinian is actually my son , Tuvia
Grossman, a Jewish student from Chicago. He, and two of his friends, were pulled from
their taxicab while travelling in Jerusalem, by a mob of Palestinian Arabs and were
severely beaten and stabbed.
That picture could not have been taken on the Temple Mount because there
are no gas
stations on the Temple Mount and certainly none with Hebrew lettering, like the one
clearly seen behind the Israeli soldier attempting to protect my son from the mob.

Even the typically biased and slanted NY Times middle east reporting has hit a new
low. Since the Times wishes to convey the belief that the Palestinians are all
innocent lambs being tormented by an aggressive oppressor, it can not even conceive
that the wounded and injured are NOT Palestinians. The current case in point is very
personal to me. In the Saturday's Times on page A6, the picture of the "wounded
Palestinian" is, in fact, my nephew, Tuvia Grossman, an AMERICAN Jewish student
learning in Israel. His only crime was being Jewish. He was not in "crossfire" but
merely the target of Palestinian lambs who stoned his cab, dragged him from the
vehicle, smashed his head with stones and stabbed him in the leg. The Israeli soldier,
whom you obviously wished to portray as victimizing the poor, wounded Palestinian was
actually saving my nephew's life. A casual look at the background of the picture can
tell anyone that it's not the Temple Mount at all. I believe that a retraction, in a
prominent position in the paper, is necessary and an apology to the parents,
