Inspired Rally
Hundreds of us stood proudly in
total unity: Christians and Jews,
black and white, old and young, on
a beautiful Monday evening, July
10, at the Jewish Community Center
IDF memorial in West Bloomfield
to demand the release of Cpl. Gilad
Shalit, kidnapped by Hamas terror-
ists ("To The Last," July 6, page 22).
We listened as leaders of our
Jewish and African-American
Christian communities told how we
were linked with communities in
South America, Europe and Australia
in a common cause for a defender of
the Jewish people and Israel being
held in cruel, illegal captivity.
We also learned that our black
Christian friends remember we were
their allies in their fight for modern-
day liberty and are with us because
they will not forget.
I congratulate the Jewish
Community Council of Metropolitan
Detroit for organizing the rally to
call for the release of Cpl. Shalit and
those from our community that
stood in solidarity for the release of
Cpl. Shalit.

Parent Says Thanks
The entire community should
acknowledge and thank the
Federation leadership and staff, the
Teen Mission 2006 leadership staff
and the rabbis for the wonderful job
they did in getting our children out
of Israel and on their way home.
As I write this, I have just heard
from my daughter Carly who is safe
in London and will be home and
safe with us tonight along with all of
the rest of the Teen Mission partici-
pants after a truly unforgettable Teen
Mission experience.
When my daughter left on the mis-
sion, I was thrilled that she would
be visiting Israel (the first in our
family). I was heartbroken as events
developed that eventually resulted in
the cancellation of the remainder of
the trip; however, all of the decisions
of those involved, their accessibility

in trying times and their up-to-the-
minute communications should
make us all proud of the seemingly
endless work that they did under
incredible pressure.
Thanks to all for a job well done.

Wrong Claim

I am dismayed by the closing para-
graph of Robert Sklar's Editor's
Letter "A Range Of Emotions" (July
13, page 5).
After commenting on the appalling
music video airing on Palestinian TV,
which depicts a child enticing other
children to become "martyrs:' our
Detroit Jewish News editor falls into
the same category by claiming "God
gave the Jewish people" the land of
Israel!
How can we expect to have peace
when people on both sides are so
entrenched in the belief that their
"God" gave them the land?

Acknowledgment Cheered

your lead.
