Shimshon CytrynDear Sir,

In your August 27th editorial in Hamodia you cited that there was a definite bias against AIPAC. One does not have to go very far to experience biases which are prevalent in this fair country.

Our grandson, Shimshon Cytryn, has been accused by the media and prosecution of severely injuring an Arab (from the Muwassi group) before the expulsion of Gush Katif. In an interview with the same Arab on Reshet Bet, he denies being hurt by a "settler" but states that his injury was incurred by the butt of a soldier's rifle. This Arab inflicted injuries on several of Shimshon's friends (there are pictures to prove this.)

This same Arab is part of the Muwassi crew that was battling with our soldiers during the recent war in Gaza where the air force was used to protect the ground forces. Despite all this, our grandson still lingers in jail with criminals and druggies while the Arab has never been convicted of any transgression.

Shimshon's appeal for house arrest was due to take place on August 28th. It has been postponed a week as the prosecutor claimed not to be ready. Our concerns should primarily be with the unfairness of our own legal system.
