    I think there is a certain amount of revisionism going on regarding Barak's proposa by supporters of the intifadal. Arafat himself said the reason he couldn't accept it was because of Jerusalem and the Haram al-Sharif, that he could be "flexible on other matters" if he got what he needed on Jerusalem. And when pressed by Clinton, Arafat did not make a counter-offer. Barak, on the other hand, bent over backwards to try and get an agreement and committed virtual political suicide in proposing the division of Jerusalem. In contrast, many of Arafat's team were urging him to ACCEPT the Clinton parameters, and fine tune them. You also don't mention the Taba talks. These further improved the offer on the table. Arafat seemed to go back to supporting terrorism after the talks didn't go his way. BIG MISTAKE, and Abbas OPPOSED this. Israel rewarded Abbas political bravery by humiliating him, and he resigned.Empower Abbas, and just see what he does.I think you'll be pleasantly surprised
