I would like to thank June Forsyth Kenagy for her continual reporting of what’s really going on in Palestine. Without her contributions to the Editor’s Mailbag we would get only Israel’s distorted side of the story, as it is usually published in the Democrat-Herald.
It is ironic that the Israel of today is a lot like pre-WWII Germany, while the Germany of today often plays the role of peacemaker (as exemplified by its non-support of Bush’s unprovoked invasion of Iraq). “Lebensraum” is the term that describes Israel’s continual seizures of Palestinian lands.
Franz Schneider also deserves much credit for his precise elucidation of the abominable Trump regime (Opinion, Jan. 17). It be interesting to read a letter from one of our Republican friends, repudiating Schneider’s many “liberal” observations, but of course that will never happen, as many who voted for Trump have been strangely silent lately.
