Letters To The Editor

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.

What benefit is a learning experience that leaves kids confused,disillusioned&harms self confidence?

Girlfriend and double cop-killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley apparently was influenced by Islamic extremism.

We see pictures of mosques, monuments for terrorists, illegal schools, and hundreds of apartments being built on Jewish land without repercussions. We are losing Jewish property, so it is up to us to protect it.

Feiglin: Only true liberty will allow us to genuinely connect to our Jewish identity.

Thus, despite the increasingly serious problems for the mayor arising out of the current anti-police protests, Mr. de Blasio apparently will be cut no slack by those who seem to be aiming for a significant role in running the city from the streets and who will do whatever they can to prevent their momentum from ebbing.

Also left unsaid was the fact that the menorah and its oil were in the Beit HaMikdash, which of course was located on Har HaBayit – the Temple Mount that present-day Muslims claim as their own.

Despite strong pressure to throw the book at the accused, Mr. Thompson allowed him to plead guilty to assault.

A revolution is taking place between good and evil; light and darkness. Make the light activism!

Obama’s comments calling Israeli settlements “unhelpful”are harsher than prior US administrations’

He ruthlessly crushed the revolt, and, despite lacking official Roman sanction, ordered the rebel leaders put to death without trial.

Hamas recently stated publicly that a new explosion of violence against Israel is imminent.
