In response to the column by Georgie Anne Geyer ("New truths needed in U.S., Israel 'alliance,'" The Daily News, Dec. 29): She is dead wrong about Israel and she should be admonished.

Israel is America's only friend in the Middle East and has been our supporter for 65 years ever since Israel became a new nation in 1948. It is the only democratic nation in the Middle East. All of the rest are dictatorships and are nearly all Muslim where there are no civil rights and women and Christians are treated like slaves or criminals. Her anti-Jewish and anti-democratic motives are not in this country's interest and neither are Obama's.

Obama has hated Israel ever since he has been president principally because he follows the Muslim line of hating Israel. Obama is either a Muslim or he is very strongly pro-Muslim and all his actions for eight years have been pro-Muslim. The Congress appropriated money for Israel and Obama would not have approved it if he had a choice. Geyer is merely repeating Obama's views of Israel. She is wrong on nearly everything she states. It is disgraceful.
