    'No so.' - 17 Yes so. Arafat confirmed the PLO's recognition of the state of Israel in his letter. What more do you want? 'Palestinian Covenant was not amended.' Was the Likud Covenant amended? It still calls for Israel to settle and take over Palestine. When Likud removes that, it will be time for the Pals to amend their covenant accordingly. For Israel, all two-way streets become one-way ones when it wants something. 'The letter of Arafat is just a letter by Arafat.' Nope, it's not a personal letter. It was sent in his capacity as Chairman of the PLO. It is a formal legal and diplomatic document that enshrines their recognition of Israel. The bottom line is it's not what the right wants to hear. It totally discredits their claim that the Pals want to take over Israel. And their narrative of bloodthirsty 'terrorists' who must be fought. And the idea that the Pals always miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. Three charges that more aptly apply to Israel.
