Israel, Gaza

Dear editor:

Regarding the Readers Forum article titled, ‘Israel, Gaza’ in the July 29th edition of the Times Observer, and also the Israel, Palestine of August 5.

It was prophesy by God our creator, that the day would come when some people would believe a lie before they would believe the truth. It appears that this couple have been misinformed.

It has been hoped that all people would have more sympathy for the Jewish people since Adolf Hitler did what he caused so many millions suffering and death.

Israel is our USA’s best friend in or near the Middle East.

Israel didn’t start the terrible thing that is happening over there. They are only wanting to defend themselves.

Israel’s role on the world stage should seemingly be relatively minor, yet hardly a day goes by when events in, or concerning, Israel do not dominate international headlines. What many today seem to overlook is that Israel didn’t just rise from the rocky land of Palestine in 1948; it has been in existence for centuries although known by different names.

I believe Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: it is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago.

Leading politicians in Iran, Egypt, Syria, Malaysia, Venezuela, and other nations, and jihadi imams, etc., have declared their resolve to destroy Israel.

Again I say, Israel is only doing what it is doing to defend its people, its country.

I wholeheartedly agree 100 percent with the Israel Gaza Readers Forum run Aug. 7 in your Times Observer.

Thank you,

Emil Bundy
