To the Editor:
I read with interest Edward N. Luttwak’s discussion of The Passionate Attachment, George Ball’s latest attempt—in conjunction with his son Douglas—to denigrate Israel and American Jews [Israel Watch: “George Ball's Latest Diatribe,” December 1992].
Although Mr. Luttwak repeatedly and pointedly indicates that the Balls may be “anti-Semitic,” it seems to me that this is too polite a phrase. Those of us who have recognized George Ball’s virus over the years (now passed along, apparently, to his son) are not so gentle in describing his condition. . . .
