What an excellent way to begin the New Year (Oct. 14 issue): The essays by Gary Rosenblatt (“Frustrated: Israelis and American Jews. Discuss”) and Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove (“On Israel, the Sane Center Must Speak with Passion”) articulated the feelings that so many American Zionists have been feeling. We are deeply committed to Israel but also equally distressed by so many of the policies of this Israeli government.

I applaud the sentiments expressed by my colleague Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove (“On Israel, the Sane Center Must Speak with Passion,” Opinion, Oct. 14), especially his charge that if diaspora Jews “want to effectuate change” in Israel, we should “do it systematically... [by, among other actions,] support[ing] those efforts aimed at creating a two-state solution.”

Thank you Jewish Week for taking an informed, intelligent position. No doubt you will be deluged by angry people canceling their subscriptions.

The fact that Trump would void the agreement signed by all of the 195 nations, including Israel, at the December 2015 climate change conference in Paris should be enough to recognize that he is not fit to be president of the U.S. The denial by almost all Republican politicians of the existential threat that climate change poses to Israel and, indeed, the whole world, despite the overwhelming scientific consensus and the many recent examples of severe heat wave and climate events, means that they should be opposed at the ballot box.

I am ashamed that The Jewish Week would join the unfair and slanderous media in support of the corrupt, lying, immoral Hillary Clinton. She is responsible for the turmoil in the Middle East by ISIS, which did not exist when she took office. As a result of her and President Obama’s weak policies, . The radical Muslims took over Libya, the Muslim Brotherhood took over Egypt, ISIS took control of much of Iraq and Syria with American weapons and armor, etc.
