Amen, rabbi!

I agree with Rabbi Friedman. Amen, rabbi! Dick Tracy (Other Voices, June 4) just doesn’t get it! His statement, “My feelings mirror those of the Europeans who love Americans but despise our system,” angers me. I say to Mr. Tracy, go live somewhere else where you won’t have to despise your government! I love our government!

I’ll tell you why we support and protect Israel, since you admittedly don’t know. Israel is the only democratic government in the Mideast. We believe in their core values, their government system, their right to go into any sector of their land where terrorists who are waging war on their citizens exist, and their right to build whatever structure necessary to keep them out.

Anyone who would ignorantly equate their wall with the Berlin Wall, or state that 9/11 occurred because we support Israel shouldn’t have the temerity to put his opinions in print. I suggest Mr. Tracy confine his opinions to gardening, where he seems to have a modicum of understanding.
