  • Romney, Obama move U.S. toward war with Iran

    In the race between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, it is instructive to watch how each candidate for president behaves when the subject of Israel is mentioned. Every four years, citizens running for the highest office in this country feel duty-...
  • President Obama should resist the drumbeat for war with Iran

    The drumbeat for war with Iran is getting scarier and scarier ("No good options for Iran," Aug. 2). The situation has escalated now that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has concluded that the recent suicide attack that killed five Israelis in Bulgaria...
  • Sometimes, you almost want to feel sorry for Mitt Romney

    Sometimes, you almost want to feel sorry for Mitt Romney
    I am starting to feel sorry for Mitt Romney. On an international tour to three countries, he made news in two of them by dissing the London Olympics and infuriating the Palestinians. The poor guy -- for months, people have complained that he never says...
  • U.S. kowtows to Israel

    Ray McGovern, in his op-ed ("Is Israel fixing the intel?" July 31), questions whether Israel is our ally since there is no mutual defense treaty between the U.S. and Israel. I also question whether Israel is an ally, not so much because of a recognized...
  • The U.S. talks tough on Iran, does nothing

    Sun letter writers shouldn't worry that the U.S. is moving closer to war with Iran, since neither President Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney back up their words with action ("Obama should resist the drumbeat for war with Iran," Aug. 6). Secretary of Defense...

  • Romney or Obama? Vote none of the above

    The column "A conservative case against Mitt Romney" (Aug.7) is correct when it states that neither presidential candidate is worth voting for. The problem is that both candidates are representatives of their political parties, which are incompetent and...
  • Romney was right about culture and prosperity

    Romney was right about culture and prosperity
    One of the few things Americans on both sides of the partisan divide can agree on is that this election is shaping up to be vexingly petty. The hunt for gaffes -- some real, many imagined -- has taken over. Mitt Romney's recent overseas tour, we are told,...
  • U.S. must recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital

    U.S. must recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital

  • On Jerusalem, the U.S. must be an honest broker for peace

    Commentator Robert Pines could not have been more wrong in his statement that East Jerusalem was "annexed" by Israel in 1967 ("U.S. must recognize Israel's capital," Aug. 15). The facts are that Israel started a war in 1967 in order to steal...
  • Three questions for the U.S. about Jerusalem

    There are three issues relating to the U.S. stance toward Jerusalem to which Robert Pines' article usefully draws attention ("U.S. must recognizeIsrael'scapital," Aug. 15). The first is whether the U.S. government considers Jerusalem to be part of...
  • Jerusalem is an international city, not Israel's possession

    As someone who has visited Jerusalem, the ancient city where three religions try to co-exist, I was startled to read "Three questions for the U.S. about Jerusalem" (Aug. 18). The arrogance expressed in that letter was over-the-top. The letter writer's...
