Letter: From Rashida’s Big Mouth 

Rashida Tlaib is correct – Palestinian people are not disposable. Therefore, if she truly wants Palestinians to have decent lives, she should be urging Hamas to stop using Palestinians as human shields...

Letter: Surrender 

Todd Greenberg’s poem ("surrender", BJN 11/2/23) is lovely and serves as an accurate depiction of the expectations that accompanied the signing of the Oslo Accords.

Letter: Surrender 2

When I read Todd Greenberg’s “Surrender” (BJN, 11/6/23) I was temporarily transported back to 1967’s “Summer of Love” in Haight-Ashbury.

Letter: Hebron in August 1929 Says It All

If you listen or read the main stream media or listen to 99% of university administrators today, you would think that Hamas and the Auschwitz-like horrors that it inflicted on the Jewish people on October 7 is an aberration and that for entirety of the rest of recorded history Muslims have treated the Jewish people with respect and tolerance.

Letter: CUNY Law School Speech Audience Not Versed in History

Perhaps the saddest point about a CUNY law student using her invitation to address her fellow graduates (Column: New York Times Compounds Harm Of ‘Fiery Speech’ That Bashes Israel Boulder Jewish News June 22, 2023) was that many in the audience probably didn’t know enough about the history of the modern State of Israel to challenge the speaker, even if there had been an opportunity for them to do so.

Letter: Biden’s Feckless Strategy to Fight Antisemitism

Notwithstanding the praise that some Jewish organizations have heaped on the Biden White House's recent plan to fight antisemitism ("U.S. National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism"), the facts -- for at least two reasons -- demonstrate that this plan is toothless.
