Arafat is — get a good hold on your chair — ready to accept a peace plan. The Clinton peace plan. The goddamn Clinton plan he rejected two years ago for the sole purpose of starting a terror war so that he could get more while offering less.
Dead babies were Arafat’s negotiating tool.
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is prepared to accept a Mideast peace plan put forward by then-U.S. President Bill Clinton in December 2000, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported Friday.
In an interview at his Ramallah headquarters, Arafat told Haaretz reporter Akiva Eldar that he would take the Clinton plan without changes, Eldar told The Associated Press on Friday. “I am prepared to accept it, absolutely,” Eldar quoted Arafat as saying, and he endorsed the points of the plan one by one, Eldar said.
When you fail at a negotiation ploy, you get less than you rejected the first time around. When you kill women and children, your bargaining power gets reduced even further. Much further.
Right now, Arafat’s position should be “Please let some of us live in our homes conditionally for a while, and we promise for ever and ever not to even think about giving you a hangnail.”
But no. The sick death culture of Palestine thinks that they can somehow make Israel forget its terrible losses, and grant the Palestinians what they spit on before.
Two words, Mr. Arafat: Fuck you.
