    I have always been against Arafat and his regime, but, unlike you, I am not willing to lie to make him look worse than he really is..(was!) Arafat squandered a lot of money, but it was not in the billion, or even the hundreds of million. Do you really think you gain readers when you make these hypeboles? thes obscene exaggerations? I wrote numerous articles against Arafat, some very mordant indeed. But Arafat was no more criminal for his corruption that Ariel Sharon and cohorts were for their brutality and terror against the Palestinians. Then ask, Sharon? What did he do with all these billions he got from the American tax payers? he gave the money to the herds of Gush Emunim to build "illegal settlemetns" which he is now about to demolish.... and the settlemetns of Gaza which cost American and Israeli tax payers.. billions..of dollars, who is supposed to be held accountable for that? In short, Sharon and successive Israeli leaders betrayed the Israeli people more than Arafat betrayed the Palestinian people.. They told you that Netzarim was as important as Tel Aviv...and now they are all going to be destroyed.. So, Chanah...clean your hosue before stairing at ours. We can manage our own affairs..we don't need your help, thank you. Khalid

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
