When will America learn that extorting a statement from the PLO leader Arafat that he denounces the suicide attacks is not the answer. What is the worth of a denunciation that has to be at the point of a gun, as it were? The Palestinian people are not going to believe it! When Ghandi wanted the Indian people to cease their intercine violence all over India, he put his life on the line, now that was sincerity, that was commitment! He needed no pressure to do that!
