Re “Time to Break the Silence on Palestine” (column, Jan. 20):
Michelle Alexander deduces that Martin Luther King Jr. would condemn Israel if he were alive today. I disagree.
How appalled would Dr. King be by Palestinian leaders and media who often refer to Jews in vile, subhuman language and who celebrate terrorists who kill Jews?
I don’t think in Dr. King’s moral universe there would be support for those who incite and glorify violence against Jewish children. I don’t think he’d support Palestinians who twice rejected negotiated deals to essentially give them back the West Bank but rather preferred perpetuation of the conflict.
Dr. King opposed bias and hatred; it inevitably leads to demonization and attacks. He would have been horrified by such bias and hatred shown toward the Jews of Israel by too many Palestinians. He supported Israel in the 1960s and he would support Israel now.

To the Editor:
I applaud Michelle Alexander in laying out a very articulate case for speaking up for Palestinian rights. I speak as an American Jew in saying that supporting the Palestinian struggle for rights is about the most “Jewish” thing I can do, as it aligns with values of universal justice. Fortunately, in greater numbers, Jewish communities are realizing this as a critical issue with which we must honestly wrestle.
Speaking out, as Ms. Alexander has, can be difficult, as it will open up all sorts of attacks and criticism. But if we have learned anything from Martin Luther King’s legacy, in this world of many injustices, we need to speak up for the causes that are, as Ms. Alexander says, “the great moral challenges of our times.”
Working for Palestinian rights goes hand in hand with working against racism, poverty, xenophobia and sexism. Thank you, Ms. Alexander, for reminding us so eloquently that we cannot be silent when such injustices occur.

I agree with the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, whom Michelle Alexander quotes, that “the Palestinian child is as precious as the Jewish child.”
I agree with Ms. Alexander that some of the current Israeli government’s policies toward its Arab population deserve sharp criticism. On this subject, hundreds of my rabbinic colleagues and numerous members of Congress have not been silent.
However, if someone were to drop in from Mars and read Ms. Alexander’s essay, he might easily conclude that this is a clear-cut case of Palestinian good guys vs. Israeli bad guys. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Ms. Alexander conveniently omits a single reference to decades of Palestinian terrorism, the murder of countless Jewish children, some while sleeping in their beds, the bombing of restaurants and attacks on aircraft. Nor does she mention Palestinian glorification of suicide bombers by naming streets for them and lifetime “thank you” payments to their families.
And while she criticizes Israel’s refusal to consider large-scale repatriation of Arabs to Israel, she conveniently ignores the reality that such resettlement would overwhelm the Jewish population and threaten the very existence of the State of Israel. Is this really the stuff that Martin Luther King would have celebrated?
