Reader comment on item: Why Oslo's Hopes Turned to Dust

Submitted by Jenny (United States), Sep 16, 2003 at 15:55

I believe if only the Palestinian leadership would crack down on
terrorist groups operating out of Palestine which is a condition they
agreed upon with the Roadmap but failed to do more rather sought
to deal with them then confront them there could have been peace
but I feel in all honesty it was not Arafat's intention to comply but
more rather to extort money from the US as well as gain release of
Palestinian militants as well as to buy some time and increase anger
on the arab street against not only Isreal but the US as well which
is just exactly what he did with the Oslo Accord .
