Sam old boy, you just can't help omitting the fact that Arafat founded the PLO in 1964. In 1964 there were no settlements in the West Bank, only Jordanians peeing on the Western Wall of the Temple Mount. Sammy, the truth is that people like Erekat and the rest not only don't want peace, but can't afford peace. They would be out of a job. The aid (guilt) money would dry up and the real work of statehood would have to be done. No stomach for that is there ?
