LETTER: Biden leans on Israel again

Once again we must hear our president admonishing Israel. According to your Feb. 17 wire service article, “President Joe Biden has urged Israel not to carry out the operation without a ‘credible’ plan to protect civilians and to instead focus on a cease-fire.”

What I have yet to hear from our president is a demand that Hamas surrender. Hamas officials couldn’t care less about the Gaza civilians. If they did, they wouldn’t have intentionally ignited a war with i]their barbaric attack on Israeli civilians. In fact, Hamas considers the Gaza civilians nothing more than human shields and their deaths welcome fodder for its propaganda machine.

It amuses me to watch our inept president tie himself in knots. On the one hand he touts U.S. support for our ally Israel, while on the other he criticizes Israel to pander for votes from the far left and Arab Americans.

LETTER: Clark County cracks down on street vendors

A lot of us walk or jog in the summer nights when it cools down. The juice vendor was a wonderful break before starting the return half of our exercise. Alas, never more.

LETTER: Where were the banks in the Donald Trump saga?

It is the bank’s full responsibility to fully vet people or businesses that are applying for loans. If bank officials are operating in a criminal, lazy or unethical way, they should be the ones on trial.

LETTER: Joe Biden and Iran

With the threat of an Iranian attack on Israel, the Biden administration issued it’s most terrifying single-word directive to Iran, “Don’t.” Unfortunately, Iran did.

LETTER: Biden’s bungles student loans, the border

Mr. Biden opened the border. He can close the border. If he does not have the authority to close the border, then he did not have the authority to implement his first action, that of opening the border.
