Sir: Your front page of 10 August carries the headline "Wealthy Arab who hates the US" over a picture of Osama bin Laden.

Would you publish a picture of Binyamin Netanyahu with the caption "wealthy Jew", or a picture of Jesse Jackson with the caption "wealthy black"? I think not. This implicit racism is now reserved for the Arabs - presumably because we need an enemy and we no longer have the Soviet Union.
