Slap in the Face to NPT Nations

Saul Edelman’s comments in his Sept. 18 Your Say letter are simply ludicrous. As a grossly distorted parody of my Your Say words (“The Iran Deal: An Outrage, Insult”, Sept. 4), they are reprehensible. To set the record straight, approximately 190 nations, including Iran and the U.S., are party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation… Read More

Best Deal Possible? How Naive

I found Jay Bernstein’s “Iran: No Deal Is Better than Bad Deal” (Sept. 4) to be a rational, balanced view, and his conclusion to be the correct. Building on Bernstein’s column, I want to raise my concerns regarding the motives of those Democratic leaders supporting the deal. I believe that most Democratic Party leaders believe… Read More

J Street Shows its True Colors

If anyone had any doubts as to where J Street stands with regard to the Israeli-Arab or Israeli-Palestinian Arab conflict, then the appointment of a Muslim advocate should dispel them (“Meet J Street U’s New Muslim President, Amna Farooqi,” Sept. 4).  Certainly, the presence of a Muslim leading a purported Jewish organization with an agenda… Read More

Jewish Dems: Wake Up!

So first there was our “great Israel supporter” Nancy Pelosi, who during the Obamacare vote, immediately supported it after saying, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Now, we have “great Israel supporter” Ben Cardin who just announced he will vote against the Iran Deal (It’s… Read More

‘Pillar of Stability’: Not Israel

Second verse, same as the first: The ZOA’s penchant for misinformation continues. Marc Caroff (Your Say, Sept. 4) makes a gantze tzimmus over the fact that “the present Iran deal makes a mockery of the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons” — a venerable document, he insists, that “almost every nation on earth is party… Read More

Dems Beware!

Feeling grateful for an act that a senator did more than 30 years ago and continuing to support her after taking our community for granted is not wise (“The Right Path,” Sept. 11).  At the time when Sen. Barbara Mikulski helped the Persian Jews come to the United States, it did not cost her any… Read More

Support Iran Deal and Help Wage Peace

Waging diplomacy, in concert with other major powers, has resulted in an agreement to dramatically shrink Iran’s nuclear program and to give unprecedented, detailed access to international inspectors. I am thrilled that Sen. Barbara Mikulski has joined those senators who have announced their support in favor of the Iran diplomacy! Unfortunately, Sen. Ben  Cardin failed… Read More

Iran Deal Is About U.S. Interests

Those who are opposed to the Iran deal may be making a mistake by making it about Israel (“Iran: No Deal Is Better Than Bad Deal,” Sept.4). If the deal prevents Iran from getting nuclear weapons, it is good for both the U.S. and Israel. If the deal lets Iran gets nuclear weapons, it is… Read More

Mikulski Letdown

I was appalled and disappointed that Sen. Barbara Mikulski not only voted to approve the Iran deal (last Tuesday, Sept. 2) but gave the president the necessary 34th vote to enforce it. As a five-time voter for her in her senatorial campaigns, I had assumed that she would listen to her constituents rather than as… Read More

Heed Begin’s Words From 30 Years Ago

With the looming drama surrounding the Iran nuke deal (“Iran: No Deal Is Better Than Bad Deal” and ‘Were Not Giving Away Anything,’ Sept. 4), I strongly believe as the main source of Jewish press in Baltimore, you should be required to print a speech given by Menachem Begin in May 1981. The short speech… Read More
