A leopard has yet to change its spots

Reader comment on item: A Million Moderate Muslims on the March

In today's Wall Street Journal in the Leisure & Arts section, we see what life was like for Jerusalem before the founding of the State of Israel in 1948.

The cultural chauvinism of those whose emblem is the crescent moon is a poison that blights all that it comes into contact with.

What was the state of Israel like when the first wave of immigrants arrived roughly 120 years ago? It was a barren wasteland. This is the legacy of the power hungry who had hegemony over that part of the earth back then.
