    Dear Sir, The heading of this article is at best sensationalist and at worst defamatory. I wonder if Mr. Lieberman visited Germany would your headline read: 'Lieberman now Israel's first FM to visit once pro-Nazi Germany'??? And as for your last sentence:"Israel shunned Croatia until the 1999 death of its nationalist president, whose government diminished crimes committed by Croatia's World War II pro-Nazi state", well talking about taking journalistic licence. As Franjo Tudjman actually fought against the pro-Nazi regime in Croatia during WWII, rising to the rank of general in the communist Partisans, I guess he may know a bit more about what actually went on during that time than your reporter. And as Dr. Tudjman at one stage had 3 ministers in his cabinet that also happened to be Jews, I doubt very much he was an anti-Semite by any stretch of the imagination. regards, B. Miletic
