I could not believe that Dan Martinez (letter Mar. 8) would actually blame Israel for all the troubles that this country and the world have gone through. It just shows that some people are so full of hate for the Jewish state that they can’t think objectively.
Has he not been following the terrible news out of Nigeria where Boko Haram has been murdering in cold blood thousands of Christians and have been kidnapping others to convert them? How in the world does Israel factor in this?
Coptic Christians in Egypt are being killed all the time and in Iraq ISIS is forcing Christians to convert or face being beheaded. Does he really think this has anything to do with Israel? We let in a bunch of Chechens who bombed innocent people in Boston, so I guess that too is Israel’s fault.
Oh, and one more thing, the city of Fresno is full of gangs, many Mexican, and we have seen many innocent people pay with their lives. Maybe we need to stop our support for Mexico, after all they have practically ruined a city. See what I mean? It sounds stupid. Well, so does stopping support for Israel.
