Dear Editor:
In you editorial,{"Windows of opportunity" Jan. 20}, you provide a whole series of advice to Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian authority, advising him of what to do and not to do to secure peace in that tortured land. We applaud your advice. However, could you not spare a word of advice to Ariel Sharon to cease the continuing murder of Palestinians and the demolition of their homes and comply with international law by bringing to an end the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories, that has been allowed to stand for over 37 years, in defiance of international law and repeated Security Council resolutions?
Yours sincerely,
Ismail Zayid
