DT: "Note he claims the RM Phase III doesn`t mention the PA so it doesn`t matter, but claims the PLO does even though it too is not mentioned." I didn't say is didn't matter; I said it doesn't name who the Pal negotiating partner is. You have to look elsewhere to see who is named as the representative of the Palestinian people. O-S-L-O. 1993. Exchange of letters. Arafat and Rabin. How quickly David forgets "prior agreements" when they become oh-so inconvenient to his argument. So tell me, David, where is the agreement saying that the PA is signing anything "as the representative of the Palestinian people"? I see lots of Int'l agreements where the PA signs as the legitimate civilian administration of the occupied territories, sure, but That Is Not The Same Thing. Such a bummer, hey?
