Israel-Palastinian Conflict

Thu Feb 21, 2002 6:57 pm

I don`t mean to start a `war`with this and if it does I will suggest deletion myself.

But Arafat (sp) has been holed up in a house for 3 months. Now I am not saying that this will solve the problem, but, can the Israelis not eliminate him by attacking this house. We all know that they are better equipt to wage war.

Please this is just a question, I am neither pro-Israeli or pro-Palestine. I am just wondering why.

If the Israeli's did such a thing, they would lose world wide support. Plus killing him would achieve nothing.

Expelling him might do something, like what happened in Southern Lebanon.

Israel has no intention in killing Arafat and has publicly said so numerous times, but yes if they wanted him dead, he would've been dead ages ago.
