Did Mr. Martinez (letter Mar. 8) really think before he suggested we stop supporting Israel? A little country of about 6 million Jews, and 2 million others, surrounded by millions of Arabs. I guess its blame-the-Jews-time again. Hitler killed millions, and the world is not at peace.
If we stopped supporting Israel tomorrow, the Arab nations and Islamic terrorists would not stop and the only thing that would be eliminated would be millions of Jews as surrounding nations fought over that little democracy, the only one in the Middle East.
The Arab nations hate and fear us because of our form of government which allows for freedom of speech, religion etc. We represent freedom to the world. Freedom is the last choice that these governments want for their people.
The answer is not as simple as throwing Israel to the Arabs. Maybe the answer is with the Arab governments themselves and the terrorist groups they have supported for years. They will have to accept us because we aren’t changing our form of government or way of life.
