This is in response to Isaiah Lary’s letter to the editor (Feb. 22), “A welcome to Mr. Netanyahu.”

Having lived as a child and teenager, for 12 years each, through two totalitarian and brutal regimes — Adolf Hitler’s National Socialism and the Stalinist communist regime in post-war East Germany — I was deeply moved and encouraged by Lary’s letter.

As a proud and grateful American citizen, I would like to endorse, and second, Lary’s moving concluding words:

“Since Obama refuses to do so, as an American citizen, I will respectfully state this: ‘Mr. Netanyahu, welcome back to America. Speak what you believe to Congress and this nation. We still have freedom of speech, according to the Constitution, even if Obama thinks it is outdated.'”
