An Episcopalian neighbor sent me an interesting brochure. The brochure was for a conference on the Middle East at All Saints Church in Pasadena, organized by ?Friends of Sabeel.? I looked closely at the brochure. The conference would commemorate the al nakba . I was puzzled. I knew that al means ?the,? but what in the world was nakba ? Naturally, I took the brochure to my friend, Ahuva Einstein. Ahuva?s mother is familiar to those who read this column. Ahuva?

I am writing this letter on behalf of our Israeli allies. There have been recent arguments for economic divestment from Israel by some of our churches here in the United States. They compare Israel to apartheid South Africa. I must remind your readers that not one single country in the Middle East that is Islamic has one single Jewish member of any political body. Israel has Israeli Arabs in their Knesset. Muslims are free to worship in Israel. Jews were not only prohibited from worship but evicted from Islamic countries.

B etween 1915 and 1923, the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) massacred nearly 2 million Armenians. There were death marches and extermination camps. For the survivors, there were mass exiles. To this day, Turkey has refused to acknowledge this event, and only 26 nations have officially recognized the genocide of the Armenian people. The United States has not recognized the Armenian Genocide, but 42 states have passed resolutions to that effect. Unlike Germany, a nation whose self-reflection has led to a dominant culture of pacifism, Turkey takes the position that these deaths were merely the result of an act of war. As far as Turkey is concerned, there was no Armenian Genocide.

Your front page article in the Jan. 9 edition, “ Focusing the camera on a rite of passage ” quotes Patrick Stewart, the filmmaker as follows: “There is no counterpoint - this is the view of the Palestinians. The other side of the story is told every day.” I have no issue with his documentary that exclusively tells the Palestinian side but only with his statement that “the other side of the story is told every day.” His assertion that Israel's side is reported every day is unfounded.

At 3 p.m. on Dec. 11 at Temple Sinai of Glendale's Cantor Mariana Gindlin and guests will present "The Music of Our People: An Afternoon of Ladino and Yiddish Melodies." Many people have never heard Ladino -- a language that is a mix of Hebrew and Spanish spoken in the Middle East and Northern Africa until it was nearly extinguished in the Holocaust. Over time, revivals have emerged in Sephardic, or Spanish-speaking, Jewish communities. Gindlin hails from Argentina, where she and her brother, Cantor Marcelo Gindlin, were raised with musical influences from all over the world.

The economy is good in Washington, D.C. The government is self-sustaining. It generates jobs. Alexandria Va., where I am staying, has less “for sale” signs, fewer empty storefronts than in California. On the Metro I meet people of all nationalities, going to work. One sunny morning before arriving at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) national policy conference, I see three slim teens on the King Street (Alexandria) shuttle. One has her head scarf wrapped in the traditional Muslim style.
