According to Imad Faluji, a former Minister of Communications in the PA, "Whoever thinks that the Intifada broke out because of the despised Sharon's visit to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, is wrong, even if this visit was the straw that broke the back of the Palestinian people. This Intifada was planned in advance, ever since President Arafat's return from the Camp David negotiations, where he turned the table upside down on President Clinton. [Arafat] remained steadfast and challenged [Clinton]. He rejected the American terms and he did it in the heart of the US." Yes, I know - he retracted this statement later, because it didn't suit the spin that the PA wanted to put on the situation. But there are more quotes from the mouths of PA officials stating the same fact. Anyone who cherishes the truth will seek it. If we allow them to, the "Palestinians" would totally uproot us from our country. Let's be fair, but not wimps!!
