My grandmother's letter - She is interested in any responses.

Mollie's letter written in response to talk of the Nation on NPR, February 22-25, 2010

My name is Mollie Greenberg. I am 97 years old so you see I have lived thru almost a century of history. I have been a participant most of those years in this history.

I want to ask one question that I have never heard answered by either anchor people, news people or commentators. All the news about Israel is so negative. Always attacking Israel for retaliation to attacks. Never remembering that they do not attack, they only retaliate. Only attack when threatened.

Where would we be if Israel had not destroyed the Iraqi Reactor? Where is the world when Muslims bombed nursery schools killing 23 children, bombed buses in the streets, bombed innocent people eating lunch in cabaets? Israel was created into a heaven on earth. No one in the world helped them except Jewish people.

Israel is only as large as New Jersey. Where are the 23 Muslim countries who do not take in their own people and rehabilitate them?
