Letter: ‘These politicians should have to register as agents of a foreign government …’

Sure, but then how would the incumbents get re-elected?

First off, my dad was a non-religious Jew, my mother Catholic, so I have no dogs in this fight except as a put-upon taxpayer. I object to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu coming to this country with his snarky warmongering when we are trying to find peace in the Mideast and control nuclear proliferation.

I also object to all the congressmen and senators who take money from Israeli and Jewish-American lobbyists to promote Israel’s interests over and above the best interests of America: These politicians should have to register as agents of a foreign government. The billions of dollars in “aid” we give to this prosperous little country would be better spent on the needs of our own people right here at home rather than building illegal settlements on Palestinian land in violation of the Geneva Accords.
