Up to it, Mme Royal?
Sir, - Your take on Segolene Royal seems right on ("Royal's visit," Editorial, December 6). If she didn't get a good translation of what was said in Beirut, that's her fault. If she really is that innocent, then perhaps she isn't up to being president of France. On the other hand, her lack of experience can be an asset - if she's willing to learn, there is still hope for her.
It isn't often that France has been on our side. The last time I can remember was during the Six Day War, when French warplanes and munitions helped us when the Americans refused.
Can Mme Royal usher in another era of French pro-Israelism? Let us hope so.
