    Isi Leibler's views were presented in a distorted way by Strenger and Burston. Leibler is an honest fair and courageous, strong supporter of Israel. He is also a very reasonable and decent human being. He has criticized those in religious- and right- wing circles when their actions have in his judgment been mistaken. He is a true thinking person, and not a knee- jerk responder to anything. He has worked in a dedicated fashion for the Jewish people for many years. To have his views distorted and to see him personally and unjustifiably attacked- turns the stomach.
