From Mr Arthur Freeman

Sir: Deborah Pritchett and Jonathan Regal, writing about the assassination of the Prime Minister of Israel (Letters, 6 November), claim that a Jew who acts against his own laws in this way must be "a Jew who has no religion". On the contrary, Yigal Amir is a religious Jew who says he acted on the orders of God; whereas Yitzhak Rabin, like Theodore Herzl himself, was a secular Jew who had no religion. Anyway, there are plenty of murders in Jewish scripture and Jewish history.

Yours faithfully,

Arthur Freeman
