To the editor: For decades, U.S. presidents have urged the Israeli government to stop building Jewish settlements in the West Bank. This request to abide by international law has been ignored, increasing tensions in the Mideast. ("Israel is drawn into U.S. tussle over sanctions on Iran," Jan. 21)

To the editor: When are we going to stop witnessing self-serving and dangerous politics being played at the expense of our peace and security?

This is an insult to the United States and it hampers efforts to use diplomacy with Iran for peace.
