U.S. Rejects Isreali Threats Against Arafat

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=574&nci...

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's vice premier said on Sunday killing Palestinian President Yasser Arafat (news - web sites) was an option in its threat to "remove" him and the United States rejected the idea, warning it would trigger "rage throughout the Arab world."

Also alarmed at Israel's threat was the chief Palestinian peace negotiator, Saeb Erekat, who expressed the fear that if Israel kills Arafat, Palestinian militias could unleash their wrath against moderate leaders such as himself.



Does this mean that the U.S. is getting some brains? I doubt it, but this is a good start.

1. Does this mean * is advocating
'even-handed' treatment of the IP issue? Hmm, where have I heard that before...

2. * wouldn't do that
No American politician is allowed to be 'even-handed'. Yes, we have learned that lesson recently, haven't we. Thanks Democrats.

3. Many reversals
can be expected this week. Moving Arafat from his post, would be the best thing for the future of the peace process. Yet no one here wants it. do you really think Arafat wants peace?
