I was surprised to read that two Americans were killed while fighting for the Israeli army ["High toll in Gaza fighting," News, July 21].

Why were they in the Israeli army and not the U.S. Army? Are they saying that they live in the United States, but their hearts are really with Israel? Regardless of the perceived relationship between the two countries, a question I would ask is: Why do we put up with this?
