Letter: Israeli immigration
August 02, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Israel is a country of, for and by itself. If you don’t believe me, think of the democratic vice presidential nominee in 2000, Joe Lieberman.George W. Bush kissed Lieberman on the cheek in a dramatic fashion as Bush entered Congress at the beginning of the Iraq War. All this after George W. Bush invaded Iraq (considered globally as an immoral war, but considered good by Jewish politicians for Israel’s sake). Then there is Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor. He speaks out against genocide. Whose genocide? His genocide, the Jewish one. The proof of this is his audacious plea to the U.S. government to pressure the French and the Germans to send their young men to war in Iraq. All this for the sake of his real country, Israel. After the fall of the Soviet Union, millions of Russian Jews immigrated to this country, where they were met with open arms. Mr. Lerner from San Carlos says that “Ireland and Poland have repatriation agreements.” They do not, they have dual citizenship for those whose parents were born there. Believe me, the immigrant experience of the Polish and the Irish was much less pleasant than it was for the Jews from Russia. For the Jews from Russia, this truly is the promised land.
