    I've always admired Mr. Wiesel for his talent sensitivity & honesty. But, like all human beings, I think that Elie has made a serious error! As an old Zionist who supported the cause way before the state was established permit me to remind him of the following: !. A large segment of the Ultra Orthodox were against the establishment of a Jewish State because they were waiting for Meshiach. 2. In some cases, these same people enlisted the support of our then enemies. 3. These people as well as their offspring refused, to join or fight in the armed forces 4.American Jewish tourists were not welcomed in the Orthodox areas frequently experiencing insults. There are many other items that I can mention including the present Prime Minister Prime Minister who is standing in the way of peace.
