    I surely miss the eloquent voice of Mr. Rabin and shedded tears at the televised funeral of the leader. However, after decades of terror at the hands of Arafat and others determined to eradicate Israelis from their peaceful habitations and recalling the words of Moshe, to never seek peace with them nor to follow their practices or their G-ds, seeing that they have been thorns perpetually in the lives of the innocent, even though time and again they have been offered peace, when will it be clear to everyone that they have ulterior motives and cannot be trusted? They are a multi-headed dragon spewing flames and destruction, first having Arafat as the tail and now Abbas as the tail, swinging about as if he were the leader or could negotiate peace when in fact the tail has no influence, nor control over the multi-headed monster,the tail will NEVER be the head nor will it EVER excercise control over chaos. If these peoples were honorable or civilized, fearing and obeying the laws which we hold so dearly then and only then could they live amongst our citizens in peace. Negotiating with a multi-headed monster of chaos is like depending upon Egypt to secure Israels borders. Recognize once and forever that negotiating with them is negotiating with a tail of deception which has no power over the many heads of its vile reality.
