    BJ: "What ever happened to the one that Arafat made at Oslo, you know, the one removing the clause from the PLO Charter that called for the destruction of Israel??" BEN's weasel-word: "removing" Arafat did not offer to "remove" those articles from the PLO charter, neither in his letter to Rabin nor at any subsequent time. Read the letter, BEN: http://www.mideastweb.org/osloletters.htm Arafat stated that the articles that were inconsistent with his letter were no longer valid, and he agreed to submit that statement to the PNC for FORMAL approval. He was as good as his word: he put that agreement to a vote of the PNC, and he gained their approval i.e. all articles calling for Israel's destruction were now null and void. That's all he said he would do, and that's all that he did, BEN. And I *know* that this was done to Israel's satisfaction, because the Israeli PM at the time said he was satisfied. Some nonentity called Benyamin Netanyahu. Remember him, BEN?
