    Mr. Erakat's record for truth-telling is checkered at best. Mr. Clinton, in a pinch, has also been known to tell a fib or two ... How far should we trust Mr. Eldar's interpretation of Mr. Erakat's iterpretation of Mr. Clinton's ... Well, I think we get the picture. Want the story on Camp David and Arafat's role as spoiler? Maybe we can look at Dennis Ross? definitive book on the subject, "The Missing Peace: The Inside Story of the Fight for Middle East Peac". That book is a blow-by-blow account of the United States' mediation efforts in the region. A Democrat, Ross was the chief Middle East peace negotiator in the first Bush administration and under President Bill Clinton.

Mr Eldar's reasoning from the premises he provides to a 'no brainer', here, would truly advocate that a decision be made without the benefit of a brain. Tsk Tsk.
