    FD, that's just silly. Be careful about accusing me of being a liar.  Neither side lived up to its obligations 100%.  Israel has persisted in building and expanding settlements, which is a violation and a provocation, sure. At the same time, Arafat has had an on-again, off-again relationship with his security obligations. He has never fully cracked down on the various terrorist factions such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad -- at times he'll round people up, but his jails were justifiably criticized for having revolving doors.  

    When you try to make believe that Arafat is Mother Teresa, you undercut your credibility.
