Yes, "compromise, retreat and so forth"

Reader comment on item: New York Sun Columnist Weighs in on Creation of State of Israel

Submitted by Pigfoot (United States), Jul 20, 2006 at 15:25

The US "statesmen" (and women) of the 90s should have gotten themselves immersed in in "Islamism" before they started wheeling and dealing. The Camp David accords were wonderful for Arafat and his cronies.A virtual treasure trove of cash coming from the US and Europe in return for some promises that they never at all intended to keep.

I wonder what percent of this booty that Arafat kept for himself? The Koran is replete with discussion of what is considered weak as well as the need to lie to your enemies in the name of allah. Note that I do not capitalize in the prior sentence. Anyone that can hazard a guess re the amount of money (my taxes) that Arafat stole, please reply. We Americans should file suit vs. the PLO for some of this money.
