Arafat Wants Total Truce; Israel Rejects Move

quote:
RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - Palestinian President Yasser Arafat declared a commitment to reaching a total cease-fire with Israel in a letter given to envoys of the peacemaking "Quartet," Palestinian officials said on Monday.

But the letter cited conditions, including an international observer force to help enforce U.S.-led peace moves, that Israel has already rejected. Israeli officials swiftly dismissed Arafat's initiative as a ploy to avoid threatened expulsion.

The Quartet includes the European Union, United States, United Nations and Russia.

Of course they rejected it...

The funniest thing is the reasoning: They say they want peace, peace, peace, but when offerred it, they quibble about 'why' Arafat would offer a truce - as though that really matters...

Of course, some will lap this up like milk from their mama's teets...
