Rebuilding Israel

Regarding the news article "Israelis Shift Plans for US Loans," Sept. 28: President Bush and our elected officials are asking the American people to participate in rebuilding the infrastructure, in reviving the sluggish economy, and in reducing the debt - not of America but of Israel.

The cost of this participation was worked out in relative secrecy because our elected officials want to win the favor of the United States' strong pro-Israel lobby. I thank the author for bringing this to my attention.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if our elected officials would pander as much to the US and spend our resources to rebuild our decaying infrastructure, to stimulate our stagnant economy, and to reduce our mounting debt? E. Nilenders, Huntingdon Valley, Pa.
