Here's more evidence on why

Here's more evidence on why Israel considers Arafat "irrelevant": only a few days after calling for the end of Palestinian violence against Israel, Arafat declared, "We are all martyrs in paradise." He also said he's willing to sacrifice 70 Palestinians for every Israeli death. Arafat tries to have it both ways: on one hand he poses as the stateman seeking peace, while on the other hand, he riles up the masses to violent fervor.

Secretary Colin Powell ignores Arafat's brazen hypocrisy by asking for security talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. When will Powell accept that Arafat is an impediment to peace?
