    Where is the memory of the endless cruel operations charged by Sharon, which killed yet much more Palestinians than Israelis, namely an endless number of civilians. Different from the common narrative, it weren't the Palestinians who started the vicious circle of violence. When Palestinian protested landwide against the inadequat 'final' offer of Israel, the Protest wasn't violent, but answered with overflowing violence of the IDF all over the occupied territories. The outcry becaus of Ahmed Durah cannot hide the fact, that Palestinians youths were shot daily because of their protest. The UN sentenced the outflowing Brutality of Isreal in the resolution 1322. After beiing elected Sharon immediatley stopped the negotiations, which had in January in Taaba almost come to a satisfying agreement and went on making the war, he had initiated a few months earlier. This comment is not justifying any terror attacks against civilians, but let's be fair, there were endless operations killing an endless number of Palestinian civilians and different from the narrative, it was Israel who started this vicous circle. During the ninties, Arafat did everything he could in order to hinder terror attacks, which were counteractive to his politics and this was also in autumn 2000 the case. This was confirmed by Israeli Secret Service, such as the Shin Bet. What else could he do than standing on the side of his harried folk to whom an overwhelming Military power had declared war once again, in order to cement their own illegal desire.
