Doctoring Documents II Separate and apart from the question of the significance of references in documents to “Jerusalem, Israel,” are there no consequences for a lawyer telling a court that references in certain documents didn’t exist when they obviously did and were purposely erased?

And why haven’t The New York Times, Washington Post, or even Fox News reported on this? Esther Jacobson Jerusalem

Peres And Pollard Regarding the editorial on Jonathan Pollard (“The Pollard Petition,” May 4), I agree people should sign the online petition to Shimon Peres on behalf of Pollard. And we should all write to Peres. If anyone is capable of convincing President Obama to free Pollard, it is Peres. During the mid-1950s Peres negotiated a vital arms agreement with France, and it was primarily with French arms that Israel won the Six-Day War. Peres is a brilliant military strategist and diplomat.

Also, write to Senator Charles Schumer. Ask Schumer to use his close connection with President Obama to secure freedom for Pollard. Write to other Jewish members of Congress on behalf of Pollard as well.

Peres already asked Obama to free Pollard. Follow the Peres example. Write to Obama. And sign the online petition to Peres urging him to speak up again. Reuven Solomon (Via E-Mail)

Cheering For Jackie I very much enjoyed Irwin Cohen’s May 11 Baseball Insider column on Jackie Robinson and wish to add a little history pre-l947.

I was born and raised in Montreal, where I attended Baron Byng High School, which had a preponderance of Jewish students. The Montreal Royals were the farm team for the Dodgers. We learned that the first black player was coming to the Royals to get ready to go to Brooklyn. We also learned that a large number of Americans were coming to boo him. This was not acceptable to us.

We were permitted to leave school early, wore our school color streamers on our coats and jackets, and went to root for Jackie Robinson. Yes, there was a group of Americans who had come to boo but we shouted over them to drown them out. They were shocked and amazed and quieted down immediately. We all felt very proud of what we did – and it never happened again.

In any event, Mr. Netanyahu after the election sought to soften his statement on Palestinian statehood and apologized for what he conceded were remarks that “offended some Israeli citizens and offended members of the Israeli Arab community.”

A worthy idea any way you look at it.
