Dear Mr. Yoffie, I'm sorry to read you totally disregard the fact that not all Israeli citizens are Jews. Whether you like it or not, some Israelis are Christian, Muslim, agnostic or atheist. Some people say there is a discrepancy between the terms 'Jewish State' and 'democracy'. Reading your article makes me inclined to believe them. It is my opinion that Zionists should finally realise that Israel is not a Western, but a Middle Eastern country, and that all Israelis (or Palestinians - does the name really matter?) should learn to live alongside. Having distant relatives in the region, your letter really saddens me.
