Re "Israel Kills New Leader of Hamas," April 18: War is hell, and those who practice it live in hell. But Hamas leader Abdulaziz Rantisi is dead, a victim of war and his own twisted ideology. God bless the Israelis who found him and took him out. May they find the strength and the means to continue this battle for their existence, and bring Hamas and its terrorist brothers to their knees. Still, because war is hell, may they also do so as quickly as possible. God bless the Arabs; may they come to their senses quickly and realize that Israel and the Jews are there to stay, and that Israel and the U.S. will make sure of it. May they also realize that their leaders are fighting a losing battle and will always lose so long as they deny Israel's right to exist and try to exterminate Jews.

While agreeing with the U.S. view that Iraq's conditional offer to withdraw from Kuwait is a ruse, Israeli officials further warned that a pullout that leaves Iraq's army intact would endanger Israel, and it would be better if Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's military force were destroyed and he were ousted from power. Most Israeli reaction to the Iraqi plan was dismissive. "I wouldn't even call them proposals," said Avi Pazner, a spokesman for Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir.

Israel's ambassador to Washington said the Jewish state must choose between U.S. aid to absorb a wave of Soviet immigrants or more settlements in the occupied territories. Ambassador Zalman Shoval said the continued building of settlements--which the United States has condemned as an obstacle to Mideast peace--has made Israel's efforts to obtain $10 billion in guaranteed housing loans difficult.

Israel is seeking the loan guarantees to help raise funds to absorb Soviet Jewish immigrants. Some 300,000 Soviet Jews arrived since 1989. Secretary of State James A.

OPINION

In "Traveling With Bad Companions" (Commentary, June 23), Martin Peretz complains of the lies of 1960s activists, but he nurses several of his own. Chief among them is his attack on the International Solidarity Movement. The ISM absolutely did not aid the British suicide bombers. This is a fabrication of Zalman Shoval, a senior advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who dubbed ISM a "terrorist-front organization." Peretz savages the most courageous Americans we have when he labels their actions in the occupied Palestinian territories as "stupidity" rather than bravery.
