Like Baltimore, Like Tel Aviv

“Taking a Stand” (May 1) had as its subhead, “In South Africa, Israel’s Ethiopian Jewish students refute apartheid charge.” That subhead is solidly contradicted by the recent Ethiopian protests in Tel Aviv against police brutality and racism. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Is Israel now mimicking Baltimore?

Two Solutions for Rabble-Rousers

So now we have the Baltimore riots (“The Whole World Is Seeing This,” May 1). Which city is next? Great civilizations such as the Greek and Roman empires have been relegated to the trash bin. We seem to be headed in the same direction and may soon reach the point of no return. I have… Read More

Looking Out for Israel

We Jews are known for engaging in civil discourse, open debate and understanding nuance; i.e., not everything is simply good vs. evil, cut and dried. Yet for many, when it comes to Israel this seems not to be the case. (“J Street: No Friend of Israel,” Your Say, May 1). So as a committed Zionist… Read More

God Is With Us!

Every single news website, newspaper and magazine is filled with negative news. Death, crime, the Baltimore riots and too much hatred (“The Whole World Is Seeing This,” May 1). It is no surprise that some wonder where is God. But how many people look for the positive news? The miracles? How many people know the… Read More

Turn to Fox News

Avrum Ashery (“Advocating for Israel in the American Media,” April 17) believes Israel’s accomplishments in medicine, agriculture, water desalination, etc. should be publicized. He advocates a campaign of TV spots and ads in newspapers and magazines. He believes these “messages could wow the American people” into contacting their representatives in Congress to support Israel. There… Read More

Hillary? No Way

After Barack Obama, the worst president we have ever had, why would we want Hillary Clinton (“Poll of the Week,” April 17)? She is not for Israel in any way. We cannot be that stupid again. I never voted for Obama. He has run this county into the ground, and there’s no reason not to… Read More

J Street: No Friend of Israel

In reference to “What’s Next for the Israeli Left” (March 27), it is time for J Street to be exposed for what it really is: an organization that is detrimental to the security and well-being of Israel. At its recent policy conference, J Street invited known terrorist sympathizer Saeb Erekat to address its delegates. Erekat,… Read More

Not Worth the Schlep!

“Worth the Schlep” is a great title for a useful service. And it is so Jewish sounding. So why do you permit the inclusion of such entries as the advice for Saturday 18 “Year of the Dragon” in the JT’s April 10 edition. I must admit that even if Fishbone, Black Angel Down and Pokeweed… Read More

Don’t Give Publicity to Anti-Israel Groups

Pro-Arab, anti-Israel groups should be of concern to anyone interested in the future existence of the State of Israel (“Taking on the ‘Israeli Lobby,’” April 17). Using every tactic to place Israel and its leaders in an unfavorable light presents a threat to Israel and its special relationship to the U.S. Over the past few… Read More

Jalisi Should Resign

American culture has morality standards for our political leaders. We have seen many a politician forced to resign for unacceptable behavior. Even sports figures are suspended for offensive behavior just for the accusation, without guilt proven in the court of law. Locally, we have elected Delegate Hasan Jay Jalisi who has been avoiding the scrutiny… Read More
