Your editorial about the Muslims’ violent reaction to the metal detectors (Jewish News, July 28) that Israel placed on the Temple Mount the other week, could have been clearer about the causes. You correctly referred to “Muslim intransigence,” but the cause is deeper than that. The Mufti of Jerusalem, the highest Islamic religious authority in that area, condemned the “Zionist metal detectors.” So, the problem was not the metal detectors per se, but the fact that they were placed there by Jews who were exercising a measure of Jewish sovereignty and superiority over Muslims. This is absolutely forbidden by Islam’s sacred texts in which Allah commands Muslims to make war on the Jews until the Jews submit to Islamic law, and it is forbidden by Islam’s prophet who commanded Muslims to make war on the Jews and kill them. These sacred texts are taught and preached in all mosques.

I hope Democrats don’t turn themselves inside out over Jon Ossoff’s loss in the Georgia 6th (June 20). While I’m truly sorry he lost, it was an overwhelmingly Republican district, where Tom Price won by 23 points in 2016 and the full disaster of the current Republican policies are not yet felt by most people. When the astonishingly terrible health plan is finally made public and people watch their parents, children, siblings and friends be denied health care, pay more and lose access, and they experience the full horror of President Trump’s foreign policy, decimating the State Department, turning on our allies and generally trashing 70 years of American international leadership, Democrats will win in district after district if they do the ground work that is always necessary to win elections.

Ben Cohen's commentary “Trump crisis shouldn't mask new opportunities for Mideast peace” (May 26 issue of Jewish News) is distressing. The article spends the first six of its 13 paragraphs discussing whether we recognize the Kotel as belonging to Israel.
