NO YASSER, NO PEACE: The Little Green Footballs blog is right: Yasser Arafat has turned Palestinian society into a death cult, one dedicated to the encouragement of terrorism and the murder of children, and the only hope for peace in the region is to do what President Bush wants, to eliminate Arafat from the equation completely. Bush is also right to hope for a Palestinian state "in three years' time"- a major error of all of the Clinton negotiations is that they aimed for peace right away, even at times when both sides were clearly not ready. Bush also said this week that he hopes Osama BinLaden can be killed by the one-year anniversary of September 11th; can we also hope that Arafat will be dead by next year's ten-year anniversary of the Oslo Accords?
