Letter: Peace process brings bombs

Sir: Robert Fisk's selection of the killing of Abbas Moussawi as the trigger for the bombing by Hizbollah of the Israeli embassy in London and the Joint Israel Appeal offices in Finchley is insulting to Jews throughout the world who are now under attack by Muslim fundamentalists.

Hizbollah intervention in Lebanon, with Iranian inspiration and Syrian connivance, goes back 12 years. And while it is true that Hizbollah is 'prepared to inflict massive civilian casualties' by targeting civilians, Israeli policy has consistently targeted military installations and personnel. However, the terrorists often locate their positions behind a shield of civilians, some of whom, regrettably, are killed in the crossfire.

Yours faithfully,
