Peres's fallen for Arafat's tricks, agn....
Arafat's main objective's to have a Palestinian State WITHOUT A PEACE-TREATY WITH ISRAEL, saving his, & the Palestinians', image in the Arab/Moslem world from the profound shame & humiliation of having to sign & honour an agreement with the Jews.
This "State", which won't be demilitarized, as some naifs dream, will almost immed make war upon Israel, to "redeem its unliberated soil".
Aftr all, the problems not finally a simple dispute abt real-estate, its fully existential: it's over whether there continues to be a Jewish State on this planet or not, not over the size & shape of it.
Therefore, it shd be seen clearly that this "plan"'s futile & destructive & it ought to be rejected amid gales of laughter. The Palestinians regard bloodshed as the 1 legitimate road to their State; they'll accept no substitute, since exclusively thereby - in slaughter - can their precious "honour" be found.
Arafat'll ratchet up the violence now in a bid to necessitate international intervention (which he knows'll overwhelmingly favour his side, as it's always done in the past), with a view to attaining his State unilaterally, without any Israeli conditions, negotiations, or even correspondence....
