GUEST,mgarvey@pacifier.com Is Arafat Irrelevant (100* d) RE: Is Arafat Irrelevant 01 Feb 02


I hope he goes as soon as possible. And I believe most people in both sides of the situation are caught up in history and culture and land and water rights, and are pretty much innocent of anything, except for terrorists. I am very sympathetic to the Ethopians and Ukranians etc. who come seeking refuge from tyranny and/or starvation. What makes me upset is the Americans who are not fleeing anything and who, if I understand it, are among the settlers, and causing great hard feelings among the Palestinians as they see further former family-owned olive groves etc. being torn down for people who have so much more than they can hope for. It's not right. If you love the land, especially land your family has owned for generations, you can understand their sorrow, which turns into rage. Someone said on a list for Vietnam veterans that rage is the guardian for grief. mg
