Letter to the Editor

Paper shortchanges president’s pro-Israel advocates

Dear Editor:

I read your article about the owner of the Atlanta Jewish Times suggesting that Israel may be wise to have Mossad assassinate President Obama.

After reading the article I was shocked, aghast and chagrined. I was shocked that a Jew would forget the one thing that was ingrained in every Jew since WWII which is “Never Forget.” Obviously, andrew adler (lower case letters intended) has a very short memory or amnesia to make such a dastardly suggestion, not to mention his total disregard for respect of the office of the presidency.

I was aghast that the article cited several other prominent Jews, some of whom suggested that President Obama was on a crusade to destroy Israel. Never once was there any mention of Israel promulgating the situation they are in. Three differ- ent U.S. presidents have attempted to mediate the Middle East “two state” stalemate and all Israel has done is continue to build settlements and enrage the Palestinians.

The Israelis don’t trust the U.S. and they surely don’t trust the Palestinians. This is a certain path to disaster. The number of Arab/Israeli friendly nations is shrinking and will get even smaller if Israel does not ease up on some of its intransigence.

I was chagrined to read the continuation of the article on page 6B, only to find another article about Israelis vouchingforPresidentObama in a campaign video. It seems to me that the second article belonged on page 1 alongside the assassination article. How many people will go to page 6B to read the article.
