Captured Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti has told Israeli interrogators that Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat personally approved weapons funding for attacks against Israelis, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's office said Thursday.


Palestinian officials contacted by The Associated Press refused to comment on the report. In the past, they have consistently denied that Arafat approved attacks against Israelis, citing his denunciations of attacks against civilians on both sides.

Barghouti, 41, captured in the West Bank town of Ramallah on April 15, is the highest ranking Palestinian leader to be taken into custody during Israel's recent sweep through the West Bank.

And it has also been disclosed that President Bush authorised funds to go towards weapons used to fight the aggressors who crashed 4 planes on September 11th. What is your point?

I'm no pro Israeli or pro-Palestinian, but everybody seems to be getting so upset about a nation's right to defend itself. And that applies to both Israel and Palestine. Please can everyone just grow up, read some books, learn about what is really going on and then form a logical, rational opinion instead of the 'so and so did this' and 'so and so said that' which constitutes about 90% of the arguments on here.....

Given the methods of torture used by the Israelis, I'm quite sure that you'd admit to being Ariel Sharon if that's what your interrogators wanted, Galaxy5!

The Israelis are occupying the Palestinian's homeland. They are therefore perfectly entitled to defend themselves - or attack their oppressors - in an effort to remove them from that homeland. The resistance forces did it against the Germans during the Second World War; and various liberation organisations attacked their colonial powers subsequently.

Adding to that - BOTH sides are entitled to defend themselves. Suicide bombings are the only way the Palestinians can do so in the light of Israeli Military power, and icursions into Palestinian cities is the only way the Israelis can stop the suicide bombings.

I'm sure you may well have noted a vicious circle in all of this however, so maybe it is time to have people who are actually interested in peace in control. I don't believe that would apply to either Arafat or Sharon though. Oh why oh why did Yitzhak Rabin have to die? He was a man of great strength and courage (far more than Sharon and Arafat) and we would have had a great chance of peace if he still was alive.  Sad

Rabin would have done anything the PLO demanded, including the complete destruction of Israel, had he not died.
Sharon knows the PLO won't stop at anything short of the elimination of all other religions from the Holy Land, and will do what is in his power to prevent that from happening.

There can be no peace as long as a single Jew is alive in the world, it is now well understood that that is what groups like the PLO and it's subsidiairies are striving for and won't stop until it has been achieved.
