BEIT HANOUN, Gaza Strip - When I first met Abdullah Alathamna four years ago, he was laid up at a children's hospital in Los Angeles, his right leg bound in a cast. He was pale, and grouchy from the pain pills. He was not at all interested in answering questions from a reporter. He was an 11-year-old kid, injured and without his family, more than 7,000 miles from his home in the northern Gaza Strip. The Palestinian youngster lost a foot in 2006 when the Israeli military accidentally shelled his house and several others while targeting militants who had launched rockets into Israel.

Re "Family driven out by racism," Nov. 21 The horrifying ordeal endured by the African American family in Yorba Linda that was forced to move to safety because of the abuse heaped on them by unknown assailants brought back painful memories. My family moved to L.A. in 1970, and we lived next door to people who never knew us - but did know we were Jewish and hated us for that. They used to scream over the fence that we should have died at Auschwitz. They threw rocks at our home, smashed bottles against our windows and finally poisoned our dog. The police advised us to get a gun, but we moved.
