Subject: How about Israeli compliance with international Law?

Dear Editor:
Norman Spector is at it again; re-writing history { " Take a deep breath before you start pushing Israel" Nov. 15}. All Israel is required to do is implement Security Council resolutions and comply with international law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.
Messrs Bush and Blair are blowing hot and cold about "war on terrorism."  Strangely, however, not a word is mentioned about Israel, where state terrorism has been its regular practice since its creation and continues to this day. This terrorism has not been limited to Palestinians and Arabs but it included Europeans, the U.S. and even Jews. The catalogue is lengthy but I will let an Israeli man of courage tell it as it is. The late Professor Israel Shahak, a Holocaust survivor, and then Chairman of Israeli League for Human and Civil Rights, stated: " There is nothing new in the fact that  Israel is a terrorist state, which, almost from its inception, has used its intelligence service [the Mossad] to assassinate people on foreign soil with any violence or terror it considers necessary for its ends."
How long must Israel remain above international law?
Yours sincerely
Ismail Zayid, MD.
