Letters To The Editor


Letters-logo

Foxman should be more concerned that Israel is the only country in the world where Jews are driven out of their homes by armed soldiers and cannot live where they want to in their own nation.

He says his Anti-Defamation League does not want future generations to forget the lessons of the Holocaust. He should be more worried by the barely concealed plans of the Israeli political elites to establish a Hamas-Fatah terror state in Judea and Samaria that will require the expulsion of 250,000 Jews into overcrowded Israel. This would give almost all of Israel’s water sources to the Arabs and leave the country indefensible. George Rubin New York, NY

 

Unfair Criticism

In their Jan. 13 op-ed articles, Rabbi Ron Yitzchok Eisenman (“Dear Brother: Who Are You?”) and Ziona Greenwald (“Where’s the Outrage?”) seem to be saying that since no one in the right-wing Orthodox camp has spoken out against the marauders, it’s apparent that the entire yeshiva world marches in lockstep with them. It’s quite interesting that both writers failed to mention that the leadership of Agudath Israel, which represents Torah Jewry, has unequivocally condemned the behavior of these fanatics.

While I do not question the writers’ justified outrage – I too am appalled by the extremists – I believe they do no service to the cause of Torah Judaism by besmirching a wide swath of the religious community.

Let’s recall the words of the saintly Chofetz Chaim: “At first I wanted to change the world, but then I realized I must first change myself.”
