Letter to the Editor
A lot of people have been talking about Israel’s right to exist as if Israel has some special rights that other countries don’t have. Israel has no more of a right to exist than any other country in the world has. There is nothing special about Israel as compared to any other country in the world. Nor is there anything special about the rights of Jews as compared to any other religion. Judaism like Islam and Christianity is just another religion. Lebanon has the same right to exists as Israel does. The right to exist is an earned right and it is based on a country’s ability to respect the rights of others and to work towards peace and oppose war.
