Israel's policies in the territories

Regrettably, it is we United States taxpayers who are footing the major bills for the encroachments the author describes.Without our annual billions in foreign aid, the Israeli government could not possibly offer the preferential mortgages, guaranteed loans, land value discounts, equipment grants, tax reductions, infrastructure subsidies, and other financial inducements currently enticing Jews to settle on Arab turf. Texas Congressman John Bryant's proposal to withhold from that aid the equivalent of what Israel spends on illegal settlements deserves fuller consideration. L. Humphrey Walz, Janesville, Wis.
