Backward facts

Dear Editor:It seems to me that in his letter of June 6, Mr. Pew has confused his facts. Five Arab states attacked the nascent state of Israel the day after statehood was declared in 1948 – not the reverse as was stated. History of the Middle East 101. Look it up.Everyone appears to have an opinion as to what the solution is to the problems of the region. One thing is certain: If the right of return is granted to the Arabs who fled in 1948, and their descendants, there will be no Israel, and the Arabs will have achieved politically what they were unable to do by force of arms over these many years.Werner KnurrCarbondale
