Understanding Netanyahu


Gary Rosenblatt clearly portrays Michael Oren as an historian who tells it the way it is (“No Way To Treat An Ally,” June 19).

Those who
clearly will criticize Prime Minister Netanyahu should understand that he has made many personal sacrifices on behalf of the state of Israel.

Not only was he a soldier in the IDF. He was one of many soldiers that
rescued hostages on a hijacked airplane.

He lost his older brother in the Entebbe rescue of 1976. This is what
motivates him as a fierce defender of the state of Israel.
