Globe Magazine readers respond to stories from recent issues.


Thank you so much for the excellent article on the complex issues in the Middle East from a human point of view (Perspective, September 9). My father was the first of the Obeidallah family to emigrate from Battir to the United States. He arrived in the late ’50s, and though he is no longer with us, his legacy certainly lives on. There are more than 150 Obeidallahs in the United States, which is simply astounding, given the more than humble digs writer Phil Primack visited in Battir. Anyway, I just want to give Primack a shout out for this good work, this balanced work, this work that might actually help promote even a trickle of peace. Sometimes all it takes is a trickle to start a revolution of hope and peace and connection.
