In the ten months or so that I have been a subscriber I have been quite turned off by the left-leaning column of Daniel Solomon.
However, this week’s (March 2) column has made me decide not to renew my subscription when it expires. When I moved to Arverne from Far Rockaway last March I subscribed because I wanted to know what was happening in my new community. I really do enjoy that feature of The Wave.
As a conservative Jewish American I do not want to have anti-Republican and anti-Israel views in my face. If I wanted that I would subscribe to leftist publications. In this week’s “commentary,” Solomon offers lies and slurs about Bob Turner and says terrible untruths against Israel. No matter that he himself is Jewish; we call people like him “self-hating Jews. “At the same time he slobbers over the “sage” President Obama who is destroying this nation.
At least if you are going to give a forum to this leftist you should provide balance by having a columnist with conservative views as well. So I will continue to get my politics “fair and balanced,” and sadly will have to manage without community news.
