In her article, “Battered By Boycotts”(Oct. 15), Julie Wiener strikes an apologetic and defensive tone about Israel. She finds that “the very real power and economic inequalities between Palestinians and Israelis are hard to ignore.”
In just 62 years, Israel has provided a refuge for Holocaust survivors, provided a new home for Jews from Muslim countries, airlifted Jews from Ethiopia and taken in over a million Jews from the former Soviet Union.
I see no need to be apologetic about Israel.
Ms. Wiener: please do not miss the forest for the trees.
