Letter — U.S. ignores U.N. resolution

Why does most of the Islamic and Arab world hate us? Last Thursday, President Bush stood before the United Nations general assembly and condemned Iraq for not adhering to U.N. resolutions. Meanwhile, since 1967, Israel has thumbed its nose at U.N. Resolution 242, which requires Israel’s withdrawal from the occupied territories. Yet for 35 years, the United States hasn’t demanded action against Israel. And we wonder why we are hated.
