Sir: Anthony Moore (letter, 26 March) demands of Mr Netanyahu that he not "play his domestic politics to the detriment of our worldwide interests." Why? Has not the world (with the exception perhaps of the United States) played its domestic oil-related interests to the detriment of Israel for the last 50 years?

Mr Netanyahu was elected to safeguard the interests of Israel and the Israeli people. Looking back in history I cannot see any reason why he should be obliged to adapt Israel policy to the interests of the international community generally and Britain in particular.
