The Editor's Notebook ("Killing Jews,
I wanted to thank you for the beautiful-
ly written article about me and the CD
I have recorded ("Doer Profile," Jan. 16,
page 10). Staff Writer Shelli Liebman
Dorfman did a great job of interviewing
me, and I was very pleased with the
I am a four-year ovarian cancer sur-
vivor, and all of the profits from the sale
of the CD go to cancer.
Ovarian cancer is called the silent can-
cer; women need to be more aware of
the symptoms, so it can be detected at
an early stage. I have been speaking to
women's groups on this subject and will
continue to do so.
A reminder for those interested, the
CD is available at our Web site,
Pleasing Allah," Feb. 6, page 5), while
not entirely wrong, was also not entirely
correct. Above all, in no way could it
contribute to peace.
I do not know where you got the sta-
tistics about the percentage of the
Palestinian population wanting all Jews
dead. My statistics say the majority of
both Palestinians and Israelis want peace
and believe they have to live as neigh-
Your editorial can only add more prej-
udice among our Jewish population and
strengthen the radicals among us. Many
Jews forget that we were told at the Sea
Of Reeds that "these are also my children
who are drowning."
I remember when only a few of us
believed that a Jewish state was possible
and worth working for. I hope most of
us believe that peace is not only neces-
sary, but also possible today or in the
near future. Unfortunately, I believe
your editorial will not contribute to an
understanding between Jew and Arab.
Hate is an awful sickness.

I would like to thank the Jewish News
for the wonderful cover story on recov-
ery from addiction in the Jewish com-
munity ("Fighting Addiction," Jan. 30,
page 16). •
Unfortunately, the toll that addiction
takes on the addict
his family is
multiplied by the lack of acceptance in
the community. Your article went a long
way in helping families in need seek out
the help that is available to them.
Readers may underestimate the influ-
ence of an article in the Jewish News. I
can testify that the response from people
in need has been overwhelming, in
direct influence from your article.
Featuring Eric Paskel on your cover
was a good choice: The Jewish commu-
nity needs to know that there are suc-
cessful recovering addicts among us. We
all know that there are substance
abusers; now we know that there are
plenty of recovering addicts in the
Jewish community that need our sup-
port to stay on the right path. We are
proud of them.

As a young boy in Nazi Germany-occu-
pied Lvov, Poland, knowing a little
English, I was given the perilous task of
listening to the forbidden BBC broad-
casts — translating them to my waiting
parents and their trusted friends.
We were housed on 10 square feet of
dirty factory floor. I was sequestered
under thick blankets so no one else
could hear what I was doing. The penal-
ty for listening to BBC broadcasts was
arrest by the dreaded Gestapo and
immediate execution. So hungry were
we all for real news that my parents were
willing to put themselves and me at risk
to share it with only very confidential
and particular friends.
Today's deeply biased reportage by the
British Broadcasting Corp. is such a bit-
ter disillusionment that I can no longer
listen to it. Reporting on ongoing
American primaries while standing in
front of the White House and conduct-
ing a tirade on all the "shortcomings" of
the Bush administration is not at all
reporting on the subject under discus-
sion. Their anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian
and anti-American slant is so blatantly
obvious that Israel has banned the BBC.
Perhaps the U.S. should do the same
thing. Today, the BBC had to apologize
for untrue reporting as judged by a
British court; I could cite dozens of
other highly biased "reports." What a
pity for a formerly highly respected,
independent and esteemed news organi-
zation to have reduced itself so low.
