"You question the reporting on the Camp David offer because I did not mention Taba. TABA WAS NOT THE SUBJECT"(Ron) For your information, Taba was the continuation of Camp David in which Barak's offer was nearly as generous. At Camp David Barak offered to give up 93% of the West Bank NOT as you claim 61%. And the response was? Violence and the second Intifada! By the way, please don't trot out the old excuses about Sharon's visit to the holiest site for the Jewish people (the Temple Mount) because that didn't justify the violence that was unleashed by the Palestinian Arabs ... So what happened next? They continued the negotiations at Taba and Barak offered even more generous terms. Arafat dithered and insisted on the so called Right of Return too. And then, as you rightly say: Time ran out. Now, are you telling me that Arafat was NOT aware that time would run out? Are you telling me that he wasn't aware that Clinton's presidency was at it's end? Are you telling me that Arafat wasn't aware of the imminent Israeli elections? Are you telling me that Arafat did NOT in effect reject Ehud Barak?s offer by NOT accepting a good offer while he still had the chance to accept it? Because if you are saying that, then you are the one who is lacking clarity of thought ...
