Tom Friedman accuses
Congressmen of corruption

The Editor,
The Jerusalem Post.

Sir,

In a recent New York Times column, long time contributor Thomas Friedman alleged that the ovation given to Bibi Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister, during and following his recent speech to both houses of Congress . . . was “bought and paid for by the Israel lobby”.

No facts were adduced to support this monstrous accusation though Friedman and the NYT have no doubt been roundly criticized.

What’s strangely missing however, are vigorous denials by individual Congressmen that they are corrupt, or have been corrupted by the Jewish or any other lobby. Why have they not personally defended themselves against this personal attack on their character and morals?

Sincerely,
Jock L. Falkson
