German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Thursday called Israel's interpretation of the Rome conference outcome a "gross misunderstanding," insisting the declaration in no way indicated the Israelis should continue their offensive in Lebanon. Justice Minister Haim Ramon said earlier that Israel interpreted the lack of consensus at Rome as a green light to continue its attacks on Hizbullah. "I would say just the opposite - yesterday [Wednesday] in Rome, it was clear that everyone present wanted to see an end to the fighting as swiftly as possible," Steinmeier told reporters in Berlin.
