Since there have been many topics here about Israel in recent days and weeks I wanted to add this since I heard this on a radio program this afternoon.

This is a statement from the former Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu:

"The only difference between Bin Laden and Arafat is that we know where Arafat is."


On the program he gave lots of insight on the conflict between Arafat, his organisation and Israel.
But what are your comments on this statement? Do you accept / reject it?

He has a great and valid point there... it may be a subtle criticism of the handling of the terrorist situation by Sharon's government-- they just are not being tough enough on the terrorists.

Oh, but he forgot one difference between the two-- Arafat doesn't have a $25 million bounty on his head  Sad. I think I'd get on the first El Al flight I could find if that were the case... lol  Laugh out loud

I don't agree with it, Arafat is just stupid in my opinion, I really un-talented leader, but he's not the terrorist on the level that Bin Ladin is.

Yet, I think he is also a terrorist because he has deliberately led and coordinated terrorist attacks (i.e. shootings, suicide bombings) against Israeli civilians in the last three decades.

But comparing him to Bin Ladin? No, I don't think he's that bad.

Just like Bin Ladin, Arafat is a freedom fighter.

Weren't we looking for a comparison?
One strugles for freedom in Palestine, the other fights for the freedom of Saudi Arabia...

No, N400QX Im no B Ladin supporter, but Arafat is a good guy!

Tbar220, partisans of World War II also targeted German/Italian civilians, just because there was no the other way.
