The Editor,

Dear Editor:
In the midst of George W. Bush's campaign to invade Iraq, Rami Khouri correctly , in his article: {"Statesman or bully....." Sept 18},displays the US hypocrisy, in  calling on the UN to show its credibility in enforcing its resolutions against Iraq, while overlooking UN resolutions against Israel.
Israel stands in defiance of 63 Security Council resolutions, over the last 50 years. That is not to mention scores of Security Council resolutions against Israel,  vetoed by the US.
It is time to put an end to this hypocrisy and practice of double standards, if the UN and the US are to be credible. Israel must not be allowed to remain above international law.
Yours sincerely,
Ismail Zayid.
