Pointing a Blood-Stained Finger
According to Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat, foreign powers have been supporting the suicide bombing campaign. This is being reported as a troubling new development. While the reality of it is certainly troubling, it is hardly new. Did anyone think that Iran, Iraq, and/or Saudi Arabia weren't intimately involved in the Palestinian terror campaign? Saddam Hussein has been cutting checks to the families of suicide bombers for months. Saudi TV broadcast a telethon to benefit the Intifada that raised $150 million. Of course other nations were and are involved - what is important is not to let Arafat use that fact to weasel out of own responsibility for his own role.
