The argument about who populated the Holy Land first and in what numbers
and how each bit of it came into Israeli hands is not quite as simple
and clear-cut as popular mythology might have it.
None of it really matters much. A situation exists on the ground in the
here-and-now that has to be dealt with. Going around-and-around over who
has the rightful title to the land based on things that happened 50
years ago, a hundred years ago or 2000 years ago and are open to a lot
of interpretation really won't help.
During the Clinton administration the Jews were pressured into offering
Arafat the deal of a lifetime. He responded with a murderous intifada. I
don't think he can be negotiated with because I think he is dedicated to
the dream of utterly obliterating the Jewish state.
Israel isn't going to be obliterated. They've shown an ability to
compromise. If the Palestinians had enlightened leadership this mess
could be settled.
Arafat's not the man for the job.
