ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the violence between the Israelis and Palestinians. The author criticizes Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat, who continues to dispatch suicide bombers and gunmen to kill Israelis. And in the Islamic mold, Arafat has taken to celebrating these murderers as heroic martyrs. In the year 2000, he was offered peace on the terms which favored the Palestinians but he rejected to compromise instead he took to the gun and the bomb. This rejection strategy helped him as the U.S. or the Europeans pressured Israel to make concessions to him. According to the author, every Arab ruler is able to see for himself that the U.S. can be manipulated by violence into compromising its moral and political position.
