The Jewish Week article, “Jewish Groups Walk Tightrope On Racial Tensions” (July 15), understated the concern of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) about the ADL’s promotion of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Regarding “The Lookstein Lockout” (Editorial, July 1): A number of years ago, as part of a synagogue group, I took a tour of Israel. The tour leaders went to great lengths to let our group know that they, as well as the Israeli government and its citizens, value American Jews as part of the fabric of Israeli and Jewish society. Having not been draft eligible to serve in the IDF, I was somewhat skeptical of that statement. That sentiment has now been formally broken.

Although in the past, I’ve been critical of Gary Rosenblatt’s right-leaning politics, I want to express great respect for his speaking out against those who would be fooled by Donald Trump’s absurd cult of personality, and for acknowledging both Ms. Clinton’s “excellent voting record on Israel” and the fact that “a strong and respected U.S. makes for a stronger Israel.” (“Israel-Firsters Seen Edging Toward Trump,” Editor’s column, July 1)

I was very disappointed that Gary Rosenblatt used the term “Israel-Firsters” in his column (“Israel-Firsters Seen Edging Toward Trump,” July 1). This is an expression that casts aspersions on the loyalty of American Jews and is frequently used by anti-Semites. The use of this expression damaged an otherwise cogent analysis.

Since he’s incapable of a sustained, coherent thought about anything, and often contradicts himself in the same sentence, how can anyone trust Donald Trump to support Israel (Israel-Firsters Seen Edging Toward Trump,” July 1)?

Thanks for Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “Israel-Firsters Seen Edging Toward Trump” (July 1). He is correct on so many levels. Any who were inclined to support Mr. Trump should certainly have second and third thoughts after seeing his overt anti-Semitic tweet [with a six-pointed star].
