Israeli held in Libya returning home after release

Dear Editor,

“Israeli held in Libya returning home after release” is a long, interesting report without anti-Israel bias. Associated Press Writer MATTI FRIEDMAN all over again.

Not only unbiased but also many worthy facts about Israel & its neighbors. All truthful.

If we could wish for more than perfection, we would have liked that its closing clause “Libya, like many other Arab countries, was home to a large Jewish community until the middle of the 20th century, when Jews fled mob violence and state persecution linked to the Arab-Israeli conflict.” would have added “unlike Morocco,” clarifying that it doesn’t have to be like that.

We missed a reference to the curiosity that the Libyan leader is Jewish according to Jewish law (Jewish mother), which might explain some of his hostility toward Israel, as well as his unique ambivalence as well as the relationship of one of his sons with an Israeli Jewish girl. But since Muammar Gaddafi did not appear in the report, that might be out of context until we read what his connection was to this story.

Shalom,
