Opposing Israel is not racist

Re: “Israel enforced its red line, Have Your Say”, May 20

Ben Levin’s view is revolved around America and the US Congress’s resolution. 

America is the not the only country in this world and she has no right to dictate the future of other countries. It would be more convincing if  Trump woke up one morning and told us God had instructed him in his dream to award Jerusalem to the Jewish people. 

Those who criticise Trump’s decision are not racist as Ben has suggested. A racist is a person, like Trump, who called coloured immigrants “people from shit-hole countries”.

In his book, “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid”, Jimmy Carter, a respected living American president, has spoken out against the Israeli policy of colonising the West Bank. Jimmy Carter is not anti-Semitic, neither are those who share the same view as him.
