To the Editor,
Ilya Feoktistov '06 is cleverly trying to use the vast number of terrible events in this world as a justification for Israel's illegal and hurtful behavior ("The Hypocrisy of Prostestanism," Nov. 3). As a Presbyterian, I harbor no dislike for Jews but similarly will not standby and watch Israeli statesponsored racism and terrorism played out upon the Palestinians.
The protestant churches Feoktistov so viciously attacked recognize this reality and are speaking out accordingly. Furthermore, I believe that there have been numerous referenda in North Ireland, where the majority of voters have consistently indicated their will to remain a part of the United Kingdom.
