Push Gun Control
This year marks the 10th anniver-
sary of the massacre at Columbine
High School and the 10th anniver-
sary of the Million Mom March on
Washington, D.C.
We marched in reaction to the
senseless violence associated with
guns in the United States and the
disbelief that the guns used at
Columbine were purchased at a gun
show with no background check on
the buyer.
In the 10 years that have elapsed
since that Mother's Day in 2000, an
estimated 872,247 people have been
killed or injured with guns in the
United States. The laws enacted by
cities and states to assist law enforce-
ment have been weakened because of
the persistent lobbying and campaign
financing of the gun lobby led by the
National Rifle Association.
It's time for those who recognize
the need for sensible gun laws to step
up and help prevent another tragedy.
Call your representative and ask-
ing him/her to co-sponsor H.R. 2324,
legislation to close the gun show
loophole.

Scouting Memories
I was pleased to read your article
"Scouting Centennial" (Feb. 11, page
71). As a youngster in Vancouver,
British Columbia, I was a Cub Scout
and have many fond memories of
those years and our activities.
Some years later, I when I came
to Detroit and lived around the
corner from the Dexter-Davison
market, actually, immediately south
of the Jewish Community Center on
Davison, I began working part time
at the JCC working my way through
Wayne University.
One of my original assignments
was to work with Cub Scout Pack
369. I had enjoyed that position and
opportunity for a number of years,
working not only with the Cub Scouts,
but also with the parents as well.
Since that time, I have had only
come in contact with one of those Cub

Scouts, who now happens to be very
active in the Jewish community.
We still practice the traditional
salute, but I don't think we have the
same socks and garters. We can't
recall any others we may have known
in our younger years, but would be
very interested in meeting up with
them again.
If any participants in Pack 369 are
still around, both of us would appreci-
ate hearing from you (gelfond@msn.
com).

The Real Narrative
Rabbi David M. Gordis insists that
genuine negotiations between Israel
and the Palestinians can only take
place if Israel offers to give up part of
Jerusalem ("Don't Write Off Liberals:'
May 13, page 36). He also maintains
that there should be a "two-state solu-
tion that respects the differing narra-
tives of two peoples."
Rabbi Gordis' focus on "differing
narratives" ignores the long and all
too real history of Arab intransigence
and violence against Israel and Jews
in order to place all responsibility
for peace on Israel. The Palestinian
"narrative" is based on a one-state
solution and the illegitimacy of Israel
as a nation. The blood of thousands
of Israelis murdered in the name of
Islamic terrorism and anti-Jewish
blood lust is not a narrative. It is his-
tory that we ignore at our and Israel's
peril.
Is it any wonder that those of us
who seek peace in the Middle East
doubt that J Street is pro-Israel when
J Street members adopt Palestinian
talking points as their position on
Israel? The only way to accept their
arguments is either to ignore the
history of the Middle East or to sup-
port the Palestinian "narrative" at the
expense of Israel.
That is not a complex reality. That
is accepting reality.
