Give President A Chance

Give President A Chance

I read The Jewish Week to get an overall view of Jewish positions. I usually read it with a grain of salt, but Gary Rosenblatt’s column (“Trump And The Jews Echoes A Timely Tale,” Feb. 24) was just too much.

In eight years of the Obama administration, Rosenblatt and the majority of liberal Jews never exposed the anti-Semitic and totally PLO-leaning policies he propelled. Obama not only supported the two-state solution but wanted to go back to the 1967 borders.

Hillary Clinton was very much the same or maybe worse. She also wanted to go back to the 1967 borders, etc. Yet you supported her. If Hillary won, it would have been the end for Israel!

I am the son of survivors from Poland, I was born in Germany, came here 1950. President Trump is the first president that I feel connected to as a Jew. He is a doer, not a smooth talker as Obama was. I remind you that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was the first to expose what really goes on at the Security Council meetings.

President Trump has been in office a short time but he is doing an amazing job in spite of the barrage from the press, being suspect of every move. Please give him a chance and applaud his accomplishments. I predict he will make peace in the Middle East if you guys don’t screw it up.

Editor’s Note: Our Editorial last week, “New Voice At The UN,” praised Ambassador Haley for her “refreshingly honest perspective” in offering a “clear and much-welcomed message of support of Israel.”
