The picture in Monday's edition of The New York Times of Yasir Arafat holding a gun should be an eye opener, if one were still needed, as to what Yasir Arafat is all about. The Times reported the story of Israeli retaliation raids this past Sunday after Palestinians shot at a car traveling on the Modiin road, killing three members of one family and wounding two little girls:
…Mr. Arafat inspected the rubble that used to be a police building in Gaza. A co-winner of the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize, with the Israelis Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres, he conducted his tour in his familiar military uniform, this time carrying a small submachine gun.
What real head of state in memory has appeared in public brandishing a weapon? It speaks volumes. There should be no lingering doubt as to whether Arafat is committed to the settling of differences around the conference table.Editorial Board
