‘Victory for National Security’

In the JT’s article “Good or Bad?” (July 24), the BJC’s Cailey Locklair Tolle is right to find the inspections regimen positive.  But she also said: “Right now nothing stops. The centrifuges are still spinning.  Uranium is still being enriched.”  While this might be factually correct, it is extremely misleading, for Iran has agreed to… Read More

Make It an Outlet Mall

There have been a number of ideas kicking around for the last year as to what should become of the empty and failing Owings Mills Mall (Mall Remains Achilles’ Heel,” July 17). I can’t understand why no one has entertained the idea of turning it into an outlet mall such as Arundel Mills — something… Read More

A Disastrous Deal

Shame on you, Stephen Arkan, for your uncivil tone in falsely accusing the Zionist Organization of America of preferring “scapegoats to solutions” (Your Say, July 17). Your comments relate to my July 10 Your Say letter (“Oren’s Words Are a Wake-Up Call”) in which I discuss former Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren’s heartfelt analysis of the… Read More

Listen to Michael Oren

As a noted historian and a member of the Knesset, the views of Michael Oren should have considerable weight (“It’s Time to Stop Demonizing Michael Oren,” July 10). His accurate description of the interaction between President Barack Obama and the leaders of Israel, which have been detrimental to U. S.-Israeli relations, discloses the arrogance of… Read More

What Are Synagogue’s Motives?

This letter is in response to the unenlightened claims by Janet Abramowitz (Your Say, July 17) about the community’s motivations for opposing the proposed synagogue on Stevenson Road. The synagogue proposing a building on Stevenson Road is tasked with convincing Baltimore County that the development meets the intent and general welfare of the neighborhood. Their… Read More

Riots’ Silver Lining

I agree that determination is what gets things done, but I am saddened that editor-in-chief Joshua Runyan concludes that the “only accomplishment of the riots in Baltimore was the destruction of whole neighborhoods, the fracturing of a police force and the resultant rise in violent crime” (Opening Thoughts, July 17). Please recognize that there have… Read More

Reject Iran Deal

The Iranian nuclear agreement is dangerous and should be rejected (“End Run around Congress,” July 24). It leaves Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure that openly or secretly permits weapons production. Other nations fearing Iran’s radical Shiite regime will race to get their own nuclear weapons. Moreover, ending sanctions will release $150 billion, allowing the… Read More

Abramowitz’s Statements ‘Blatantly False, Hurtful’

In her Your Say letter of July 17, Janet Abramowitz states that the goal of Stevenson Road synagogue opponents is ”to keep Russian Jews where they belong — out of Stevenson.”  I and anyone associated with speaking up about the proposed synagogue categorically reject Abramowitz’s assertion. It is blatantly false without any foundation and is… Read More

Abramowitz’s Letter ‘Disregards the Facts’

We wish to respond to the letter written by Janet Abramowitz (Your Say, July 17) regarding our opposition to the proposed synagogue on Stevenson Road. Abramowitz alleges that we are opposing the synagogue to keep Russian Jews out of the Stevenson community.  That is completely untrue and disregards the facts. As two of the families… Read More

Support Accord; Peace Depends on It

A historic accord has been achieved between Iran and the world’s major powers including the United States.  This accord ensures, through vigorous surveillance, that Iran will not make a nuclear weapon.  The existence of such a weapon would destroy the balance of power in the Middle East and launch us into yet another war. We… Read More
