Are we surprised? In the same week that the previously-mentioned op-ed from Peace Now attempts to blame Bush for the violence, a prominent Palestinian editor says that Arafat never intended to make peace at all.
Instead, Arafat signed the Oslo Accords because he hoped it would lead to Jews fleeing Israel. Arafat would never have signed any final peace agreement that would have left Jerusalem in Jewish hands or failed to include a “right of return” for Palestinians (needless to say, a right of return for Jews to their homes in Hebron, much less in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt or Morocco has never been up for discussion). And, finally, Arafat founded the Aksa Martyrs Brigades and geared up for the new Intifada following the failure of the Camp David Summit in 2000.
You can read more in the Jerusalem Post, but the short form is “the Peace Process was a ruse to set up a terrorist camp on the West Bank. It didn’t work as well as Arafat wanted, but it has killed almost 1000 Jews and Gaza will be Judenrein, so it’s not doing too badly.”
