Sir: Brits who think like Cash belong to an ungrateful

and pathetic lot. They forget that were it not for the American Jewish community's efforts before World War II pushing for American aid, and later entry in the European theatre, Britain would be an impoverished rundown German colony. The Jews of Hollywood played a vital role before and after entry into the war to per- suade a very ambivalent American public that saving Britain was worth the sacrifice in men and treasure.

What William Cash lacks is a `yiddisher kopf.'
