In response to:
What Does Olmert Want? from the June 22, 2006 issue
To the Editors:
In reference to the article “What Does Olmert Want?” [NYR, June 22], the head of the Israel Beitenu party is not Victor Liebermann—his name is Avigdor Lieberman—and the Hezbollah is not a Palestinian organization; it is based in Lebanon.
Amos Elon replies:
As far as I know, Lieberman is known under both names, Avigdor being Hebrew for Victor. Hezbollah may be based in Lebanon but its bombs kill Israelis in Israel.
