The British waited until after the Olympics began to send a team to Bulgaria to investigate a recent terrorist attack that resulted in mass Israeli casualties (“Israeli official: Terror won’t deter tourists,” Web, July 23). The International Olympic Committee, mass media and British authorities seem more concerned about erecting screens between the Israeli athletes and Muslims and attacks on the dignity of Israelis and Jews than they are about addressing security issues. Perhaps the British left Israeli security solely to Shin Bet and the Mossad.

GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney raised a fair question when he asked whether London was ready for the Olympics. He was treated terribly for it, not just by the over-indulgent British, but by our citizens who belong to the self-destructive, radical left.
