Letter: U.S. could learn from Israel

Why does the Obama Administration ignore dictators in Iran, Syria and Yemen but continues to interfere with the only true ally we have in the region, the 63-year-old democracy of Israel?

The despotic repression that has fueled the demonstrations in Syria, Yemen, Libya and elsewhere in the region cannot possibly be justified. However, the international community inconsistently intervenes in Libya but not in the other countries.

America’s leaders have more to gain by supporting and cooperating with Israel, an island of stability in the chaotic region. We should be learning from Israel’s achievements in finance, technology, science and industry, rather than trying to regulate
building permits in Jerusalem.
