Dear editor:

A unique gathering of concerned Americans took place on March 7th at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The first ever “National Summit to Reassess the U.S.-Israel ‘Special Relationship'” was covered by C-SPAN and included presentations by retired members of the military, former intelligence officials, academics and journalists. The conclusion of this panel of experts: it’s not in the best interest of the United States to have a “special relationship” with Israel.

Those who read the op-ed pieces in the Times Observer by apologist for Israel Cal Thomas would do well to log onto www.natsummit.org to get the facts.
