Unfortunate phrases Sir, - The Jerusalem Post's interview with Hans Corell, former undersecretary for legal affairs to the UN, contained some unfortunate phrases about anti-Semitism in the context of Ambassador Corell's personal attitudes ("A post-nationalist European internationalist," January 7). Corell came to Jerusalem to participate in a special colloquium of international judges and Israeli jurists, at a time when there seems to be a growing division between international law and Israel. As commented by several of the participants, frank and divergent views were exchanged, but this only forced those present to sharpen their minds and consider what others had to say on these complex issues. To insinuate that Ambassador Corell might be perceived an anti-Semite is an erroneous reflection of his personality and professional record. Certainly Israel can and should accept criticism of its policies without using the anti-Semitism card as a response. URI DROMI Director-general, Mishkenot Sha'ananim The editor writes: If certain phrases of the article were open to misinterpretation, we apologize. The writer intended no such insinuation.
