Deeply angry at lack of empathy

Re: We must not stifle those who question Israel's policies

As a daughter of Holocaust survivors and born in a DP camp in Linz Austria  I made a promise to my father to defend Jews and Israel, I must express my deep anger at the writer's lack of empathy for her own people. Their suffering at the hands of Arabs is well documented  There is no mention in her letter of the atrocities against one million Jews in Muslim lands. There is one Jew left in Kabul, as all his family fled to Israel. If she represents the younger generation  and IJV, we are doomed. That is what the majority of Arabs want, the extinction of Israel.

Its a tragedy to see this letter in a Jewish paper.
