Copy of fax sent by Maurice Ostroff to Kofi Anan July 26, 2006

To H.E. Secretary-General Kofi Annan
 Fax. 212-963-7055

Sir

Targeting of UN post in Lebanon

You have been quoted extensively as having expressed shock and deep distress over what you called the 'apparently deliberate targeting' by the Israeli Defense Forces of a UN observer post in Lebanon.

During question time at the conference in Rome today, you complained that a journalist had omitted what you considered the all-important word 'apparently'

Since Webster's dictionary defines 'apparently' as plainly; clearly or manifestly, it is apparent that even before calling for detailed reports and before considering the context of this tragic incident, you plainly and/or clearly decided that Israel was guilty of what would be a heinous crime if true.

Hasty, irresponsible statements of this nature based on preconceived views, may be tolerable from demagogues and rabble rousers, but not from personages who hold high office and whose every word carries enormous weight on the international scene. By preconceived views I mean views that have been formed before considering the context and all relevant facts.

Sadly you did not consider for one moment the high probability that the reason the post was struck in error was its close proximity to a rocket-launching site. As Israel's ambassador to the UN, Danny Gillerman pointed out so aptly; sadly there are incidents where Israeli soldiers have been killed by friendly fire due to errors, which cannot be avoided in war. Would anyone suggest that such incidents have been deliberate, he asked.

If, as reported, the greater proportion of casualties in Lebanon are civilians and Hizbollah's losses are negligible, apparently the Hizbolla fighters are taking shelter in the extensive underground facilities they built during the last six years and leaving uninvolved civilians exposed. One may well ask why the brave fighters do not make their shelters available to the elderly and children and expose themselves to the line of fire?

May I ask too, whether you will consider expressing shock and deep distress over the double violation of humanitarian law committed by Hizbollah and the Palestinians; firstly firing missiles from the midst of civilian populations and secondly firing thousands of deadly missiles deliberately aimed at civilian populations in Israel.

I would appreciate your considered response

Sincerely,

Maurice Ostroff
