Courage And Cowardice
Thanks in large part to Sarah Stern and
her organization, EMET: Endowment
for Middle East Truth, a man who sacri-
ficed his life for good was able to escape
deportation by the U.S. Department of
As Stern said in Robert Sklar's Editor's
Letter ("A Hero; No Terrorist,' July 15,
page 5), Jews and Americans should be
deeply thankful to Mosab Hassan Yousef,
who had the courage to break away from
a father who founded Hamas and other
Islamists so he could aid Israel, help pre-
vent terrorist attacks, speak the truth and
"save Israeli and Palestinian lives."
It is encouraging to read of honorable
people such as Stern, former CIA director
James Woolsey, U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn,
Yousef's former Shin Bet handler Gonen
Ben-Yitzhak and Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano all doing the
right thing and saving a courageous hero
On the other hand, how discouraging
it is to again read about the seemingly
never-ending legal battles and "life-
altering ordeal" of local resident David
Tenenbaum who has fought alleged
anti-Semitism in the U.S. Department of
Defense for 15 years ("High-Level Cover-
Up?" July 15, page 12). It's hard to believe
that he is still constricted in a cubicle at
TACOM in Warren, kept away from any
I can only wonder what would have
happened if Tenenbaum had con-
tinued his work to make Humvees
safe from IED (improvised explosive
device) shrapnel rather than tormented
because of his Judaism.
How many American soldiers in
Iraq and Afghanistan could have been
After reading Robert Sklar's Editor's
Letter on Nation of Islam Minister
Louis Farrakhan ("Farrakhan's
Absurdity," July 8, page 5), I felt the
need to reply from my personal per-
spective. I believe Farrakhan is out of
line. I don't recall the Jewish people
coming across on the Nina, Pinta and
Santa Maria, the beginning of black
When minority workers were subject-
ed to nooses, KKK outfits, Confederate
flags, etc., at an area employer, I don't
recall Jews doing this. A Jew has never
called me the N-word. Since I was one
of the victims, I do remember ancestors
from the movie Deliverance enjoying
this immensely. I am a black Jew and
I have been treated more fairly by the
Jewish community than any community.
The silence by the black civil rights
groups was resounding. I wrote many
of them personally. Two Jewish male
doctors helped me, out of concern for
my well being.
We, as blacks, get upset when white
America refuses to do the right thing
and speak up on our behalf when hate
is directed our way. We must speak
out when blacks are spreading hatred
against others. Jewish America walked
on the side of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther
King Jr. Many lost their lives in the pur-
suit for social justice. The NAACP was
the brainstorm of Jews.
Minister Farrakhan has the abil-
ity to mobilize 1 million black men.
It would be better to serve the black
community through education for the
young. Blacks are less than 150 years
out of slavery and have a bit of catching
up. Teach the black community how to
reach out and help each other and have
less focus on offering a scapegoat for
all the ills of black America.
My great-great-grandparents were
slaves. It is hard for me to understand
how a people who has suffered so much
as black America, and is still suffering,
want to make a scapegoat of another
Minister Farrakhan has no use for
my family either. We're Jews.
Proud to be black and Jewish.
