Dear Editor:

I’d like to take this opportunity to respond to the column “Biden Did Good” by Izzo Zwiren. The author’s thesis is Biden showed some backbone by standing up to the far-left wing of his party by stating that Israel has a right to defend itself after being attacked suddenly by Hamas. The columnist also makes a point of praising Biden for expressing support for Israel’s response in public and giving him credit for pressuring Israel to seek a truce with Hamas. He believes had Israel not given in to Biden’s private urging, Netanyahu would have a “worse PR crisis” on his hands. In addition, Mr. Zwiren believes this truce will lead to “a relative peace in the next few years.”

What To Expect: A Post Election Timeline

Dear Editor:

An Election Day recap might normally seem an easy feat, but chances are that such a roundup will not be available for some time. Early voting amounted to nothing more than a bust in Queens, where just 35,361 residents participated over the week-long charade. This figure is under 20% of the votes cast leading up to Election Day citywide. The pandemic made requests for absentee ballots a simplified process. City Council candidates grabbed this opportunity to reach out to more voters and offered to arrange services to obtain, fill out, and deliver these votes. Queens saw 66,000 such requests, the most citywide, and the Board of Elections had already received back over 25,000 of these ballots by Election Day.

Hate Scrawled in our Local Park

Dear Editor:

It was a beautiful May morning and I decided to take a stroll in Flushing Meadows Park. As I entered the path that snakes around the lake, I was accosted by a sign on a lamppost with a painted message that said, “Support BDS End Apartheid Crimes Now.” As I continued walking, I counted 10 lampposts with this painted message.

Dear Editor:

I am surprised at all this hullabaloo around Mrs. Krantz’s article. I am even more surprised that no one has suggested any solutions. People are just debating whether or not it was right of Mrs. Krantz to bring up this issue and whether or not KGH is a good place to raise your family now.
