Doubt on UN's 'Zionism' Vote

In the editorial "UN and the Mideast," Dec. 19, the United Nations resolution of 1975 "equating Zionism with racism" is referred to as the "offspring of a marriage between Arab rejectionism and Soviet-bloc opportunism ... another cold-war relic, rightly discarded."

Apparently a sufficient majority of the UN, not just Soviet-bloc and Arab rejectionist states, caused the passage of that resolution. The editorial, along with other media data I've seen or heard, does not say what changes have been effected in Israel since 1975 that would justify repealing the resolution. The implication that the resolution is a "cold-war relic" just won't fly. William V. Kelly, Austin, Texas
