Koch And Friedman

Ed Koch (“Tom Friedman’s Skewed Vision of Non-Violence,” op-ed, April 20) was rightfully shocked by how Thomas Friedman, a Jew, can support violence against Israelis by calling rock-throwing “peaceful protest” and asked “how would Friedman feel if a child in Israel were to be struck by a stone, perhaps losing an eye … ”

Friedman’s total lack of common sense becomes clearer, and almost comical, when you apply his twisted definition of “peaceful” closer to home.

If the Occupy Wall Street protesters, for example, threw rocks at cops or passersby, would anyone consider that peaceful? The protesters would be arrested immediately.

Would throwing rocks at the columnist or other New York Times employees be acceptable to Friedman as a “peaceful” means of protest? My guess is not.

It’s outrageous that anyone can show more concern for the misguided territorial claims of the Palestinians than for the lives of Israelis (who are constantly being bombarded with rockets). And that such a spurious pretense of compassion can come from a Jew, directed against his own people, only shows how shamefully disgraceful some individuals have become.

Maoz And Wallace

Jason Maoz’s comments on Mike Wallace were right on the mark (Media Monitor, April 20). Wallace was a liberal ambusher of non-liberals. He would delight in throwing high hard ones to the likes of Richard Nixon while serving up marshmallows and softballs to the leftists he so adored and emulated.

As for his “interviews” with and subsequent comments about mass killers like Arafat and Khomeini, they were the work product of a quintessential self-hating Jew who felt the burning desire to disabuse anyone of the notion that he was a “real” Jew. He paved the way, in a distasteful manner, for the Jewish bashers of Israel all around us.

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:

“These are good matzah balls,” my aunt Robertine would say, but her sister Irma would counter “No, not compared to Mama’s. They were always so light yet they never fell apart.”

Despite the 2005 Koby Mandell Act no Palestinian implicated in harming an American has been charged

The NY Times suggestion that HaMavesar cropping women from a photo is Israeli censorship is absurd.
