Reader comment on item: Business as Usual in the Palestinian Authority [after Arafat's Death]

Submitted by Peter J. Herz (Taiwan), May 19, 2005 at 08:30

The determination of the Falastin Arabs to annihilate the Israelis means that even after they succeed, and the descendants of Israeli survivors are successful, well-integrated citizens of their resettlement countries, Arafat's hoped for River-to-Sea Falastin will still be a festering sore in the world's body politic. An education in hatred is only an education in hatred, and when its original targets are removed, it will turn in on itself.
