A real friend


To the editor:

(re: “Bowman defends Israeli aid bill,” April 22)

U.S. Rep. Jamaal Bowman is to be commended.

The Palestinian Children and Families Act is no threat to Israel, merely an overdue bid for accountability and correcting policies that are corrosive for Israeli society as well as destructive for Palestinians.

H.R. 2590 simply ensures U.S. taxpayer funds are not used by the Israeli government to imprison and torture Palestinian children, steal and destroy Palestinian homes and property, or further annex — steal — Palestinian land.

Who could find that objectionable? Certainly no real friend of Israel.
