Yasir Arafat’s Op-ed

Yasir Arafat’s Op-ed Piece. “Yasir Arafat has written an impassioned op-ed piece for the New York Times (free registration required) outlining his vision for the future of the Palestinians. It is well-written and does not waste words. Arafat states his desire to return to peace talks and expresses regret at the activities of the Palestinian fringe which has resorted to suicide bombings. He asks for Palestinians displaced from their homes 54 years ago to be allowed to return, while acknowledging Israel’s demographic concerns. He asks for an end to occupation and subjugation of the Palestinian people.” [kuro5hin.org]
