Jerome Chanes in his Opinion piece, “Has Israel Lost Its Moral Balance?” (Aug. 15), sounds like Norman Finkelstein lite.

Jonathan Mark’s “Freedom Summer Memories” (July 18) evoked recollections of a once powerful black-Jewish alliance. As a participant in this righteous struggle, I can testify to the accuracy of his narrative except for one assertion, namely, that this common effort was “beautiful” but tragically short.
