LETTER : `Grapes of Wrath': Lebanon pays the price for Israel's securit y fears

Sir: Operation "Grapes of Wrath" was launched by Israel with the objective of bringing a halt to rocket attacks on northern Israel by Hizbollah and not, as Robert Fisk asserts, for the purpose of demonstrating to President Assad what happens to those who do not want to make peace with Israel.

The Arab-Israel wars of 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973 have already demonstrated quite adequately the consequences of waging war with Israel.
