...and today's letter to the Independent...

Your headline today tells us that the "UN fiddles while the Middle East burns". Please do not join the insidious drip feed of politically-motivated doubt that is undermining the authority of UN. The delay is due to the intransigence of Israel and Hezbollah and their various backers, not the UN itself, which has the unwelcome but necessary task of providing the forum for this debate of the deaf.
