Readers sound off new jails, the census and Cher on Broadway – New York Daily News

Margate, Fla.: Rashida Tlaib has vowed to expose lawmakers to “the ugly reality of the 52 year Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands.” Is she also going to expose them to Jordan’s illegal occupation of the West Bank from 1948-1967 when Palestinians, with Jordanian support, destroyed dozens of historic synagogues and vandalized hundreds of historic Jewish cemetery headstones? Is she also going to expose them to the fact that Jordan, with Palestinian support, ethnically cleansed East Jerusalem of all its Jews in 1948? Is she going to expose them to the fact that from 1948-1967 the Palestinians used the Judenrein West Bank as a staging area to every night cross the 1949 Armistice Line border of Israel to murder Jews? Both sides, please. Richard Sherman
