Iran tops list of Mideast dangers As Trudy Rubin observes, the Middle East from end to end is awash in inhumanity and potential threats to American security ("Juggling act," Sunday). Conspicuously absent from her column and lengthy list of dangers was Israel. Rubin provides telling evidence repudiating the misguided theory that Israel's conflict is somehow a primary cause of global instability. To the contrary, the Arab world's refusal to find new and permanent homes for the descendants of Arabs who fled Israel 65 years ago is but one more excuse for war in a region wracked by brutality.

Joseph Canazaro, who was killed Friday by two armed robbers inside his home in Hilltown Township, Bucks County, had a deeply troubled and complex financial history, and was about $10 million in debt when he filed for bankruptcy in 2008, according to court documents. He owed money to banks and the government, and he owed hundreds of thousands of dollars to several casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and Biloxi, Miss., records show. Two check-cashing agencies also alleged that he cashed faulty checks worth a total of $210,000, a matter eventually settled in Bankruptcy Court.

IT WAS common for Pablo Valdez to open his door to people, whether it was for a neighbor seeking advice or a relative who needed assistance. That's the way a 30-year-old stepson remembered Valdez on Sunday, two days after the 56-year-old Cuban immigrant was gunned down in his Feltonville home during a home invasion. "Out of the whole family, he was the oldest man. His sisters and everybody used to look to him" for counsel, recalled the stepson, who declined to give his name for fear of retaliation because no arrests had been made in Valdez's slaying.

With no arrests in the case of a Bucks County home invasion that left a man dead, police are asking for residents' help. On Friday, Joseph Canazaro was killed and his girlfriend and 12-year-old son were tied up and held at gunpoint in the basement of Canazaro's Hilltown home. The robbers took several guns from Canazaro's collection and fled in his pickup truck before abandoning it at the Quakertown Shopping Center. Authorities are examining surveillance tapes from stores near where Canazaro's truck was found and are asking the public for information about any suspicious activity early Friday morning near Canazaro's home on the 300 block of Swartley Road, or later at the shopping center.
