The Palestinian State - King Fahad Saudi Arabia, Arafat not interested
The Palestinian State - King Fahad Saudi Arabia, Arafat not interested. An explanation worth listing too and sharing. What are you thoughts during this time of crisis?
On November 11, 2004, Yasser Arafat died. US president Bill Clinton explained why he wouldn’t attend Arafat’s funeral: “I regret that in 2000 he missed the opportunity to bring [Palestine] into being...” Not Israel, but Arafat did so.Today, the Arafat era’s lessons have been largely swept under the rug: his persistent mendacity, use of terrorism, cynical exploitation of an “underdog” posture to garner sympathy and unfailing devotion to the dream of wiping Israel off the map. The placing of that last priority over creating a Palestinian state is why there is none today.
At Arafat’s funeral, one of his lieutenants, Saeb Erekat, proclaimed: “Give him the honor he deserves!” Let it be so.
As the editorial in The Times of London put it, he was the man who “threw away the best chance in a generation for an honorable settlement to the Middle East conflict.” In The New Yorker, David Remnick accurately wrote, “Rarely has a leader blundered more and left more ruin in his wake.
”Yet too, perhaps, as never before in modern history, have so many relentlessly airbrushed away a leader’s career of faults and crimes.
The reason there is no Palestinian state today: Arafat.
Palestine (Arabic: فلسطين, romanized: Filasṭīn, pronounced [fɪ.las.tˤiːn]), officially the State of Palestine (Arabic: دولة فلسطين, romanized: Dawlat Filasṭīn), is a state whose legal status is the subject of controversy although it is currently recognized by 138 of 193 United Nations member states. It is located in West Asia. The state claims the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip as its territory, though the entirety of that territory has been under Israeli occupation since 1967.
