I read “Jewish leaders’ reaction to Booker’s Palestine photo mixed” (Aug. 16); why is everyone so quick to jump on the band wagon and assume Sen. Cory Booker is anti-Semitic?
Are people so closed-minded that they can’t see past the sign and see the whole picture in front of them? How unfortunate, for I see the bigger picture. I see it as a proclamation to move toward peace. I’m now a grandmother, I don’t want my grandson to ever have to fight in a war; removing barriers is our way toward peace. Building walls stokes the fire and in these times with so much hate in the world it’s time to stop all that hate. If tearing down those barriers is the only way to obtain peace, then by all means I stand with the senator.
