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??" Arafat never ever offered to REMOVE the offending articles from the PLO Charter, BEN. He said that a) those articles that were inconsistent with his letter was now inoperative and no longer valid, and b) that this would be formally agreed to by convening the PNC He was as good as his word i.e. the PNC met and FORMALLY approved Arafat's undertaking that those articles were now "inoperative and no longer valid" None of that committed Arafat, the PLO, or the PNC to ***REMOVING*** those articles, despite what you might believe. I know that for a fact, because Bibi told me so.
from the article: Netanyahu to Hamas: Israel's offer for Shalit is final
