What this should say is “US action urged.” The US has supported Israeli terrorism for too long. We shouldn’t be supporting any of the aggressors in this mess (remember it is American tanks that are knocking down Palestinian homes, and American fighter jets that are bombing Palestinian cities).
Sharon is a terrorist, just as Arafat is. But, despite both of these leaders’ ties to terrorist organizations like Hamas and the Israeli army, continued violence is not the answer, and the assasination of Arafat would almost be a guarantee of serious conflicts in the future. Bush needs to put some serious preasure on Sharon to stop this foolish flirtation with total war.
