First of all, thank you, Jim Stevens, for the reminder of political games and the consequences. For those of us old enough to remember the atrocities against the people of Jewish faith and the Second World War, now hearing leaders of countries state openly or make statements in support of leaders who state openly the desire to wipe off the face of the Earth an entire group of people is a “wake-up” call to everyone.
For those too young or who live in a bubble, be careful what you want, you may be the next on the list.
As a follow-up to Jim Stevens’ letter, may I refer the readers of this newspaper to two articles in the Wall Street Journal, May 21, 2011 (Saturday/Sunday), Page A14 — “The 1967 Line of Fire” and Page A15 — “The Abbas-Obama Border Threatens Israel.”
Thousands of American military personnel, as well as thousands of military personnel from other countries paid the highest price to stop Adolf Hitler and his madman schemes. Emerging again is another Hitler. And in the United States, we have politicians looking for votes, but selling their souls.
