Letters To The Editor


Letters-logo

This gaffe by Obama is a gift to rightly skeptical people in America and in Israel. To Jews who love both countries, it should be a wakeup call of the highest priority. What Obama is telling us with this comment is that he cannot be trusted with the safety and security of either the U.S. or Israel.

Is this a time in Israel’s history, considering the unthinkable threat posed by a nuclear Iran, for such a man to be given one single Jewish vote? Is it still possible that American Jews can be hoodwinked and not see the looming catastrophe for Israel if Obama has “flexibility”?

Speaking of men named Vladimir, our beloved Vladimir Ze’ev Jabotinsky must be screaming from another world, “Beware, my brothers and sisters.”

Obama’s Open Mike (III)
It is time we stop demonizing President Obama over virtually everything he says or does – even when he doesn’t act all that differently from his predecessors. A good case in point is his overheard private comment to Russian President Medvedev that was central to your March 30 “Campaign Rhetoric” editorial.

You made such a big thing about Obama’s telling the Russian leader that after the November elections, should he be reelected, he would be much more flexible on major issues that exist between the United States and Russia. You saw in that comment a great danger to Israel because you fear a reelected Obama will revert to form and resume his pressure on Israel to make major concessions to the Palestinians.

Do you really think that Obama is the first president to think this way? Do you really think other elected officials do not massage the truth? I am not suggesting it is good for democracy when a candidate for president or an incumbent misleads the public as to what his real plans are. I am maintaining, though, that this is not unique to Barack Obama.

Our journey begins by attempting to see things differently, only then can we be open to change.

In this particular case, the issue was whether the Arkansas prison system could prohibit, for security reasons, a devout Muslim’s maintaining a beard of a certain length as a matter of religious practice.

While we recognize the Republican Jewish Coalition is hardly a non-partisan outfit, a snippet from a statement the group released is worthy of note:
