Brian Frankel (July 21) writes that the Arabs hate Israel because it is a democracy. Who can possibly ignore the Palestinian issue and believe that? He also misrepresents my letter (July 15), in which I pointed out that the United States could make a first step toward peace by insisting that Israel withdraw from recent settlements in the West Bank and Gaza. After all, Israel itself, after the Six Day War in June of 1967, offered the West Bank to the Palestinians as a homeland.
