It is nonsense to say that anyone who wants to reform the foreign-aid appropriation is an isolationist. Why do we keep rewarding the Shamir government, which has a dismal record on human rights, with more than $1,000 for each Israeli per year? In contrast, we have supported the peoples of the emerging democracies in the Baltics with aid of under $2 per person. E. Nilenders, Huntingdon Valley, Pa.
