Israel says it will expel Arafat

This could be interesting. I'm reminded of the saying "if you keep doing what you've been doing, you'll keep getting what you've been getting." It may not turn out the way Israelis would want, but this could certainly change things.

Jake -- I am kind of suprised that they announced it. Now they are going to have to wade through hundreds of protestors in order to do it. They should have just come in the night.

Pundits have always speculated whether it would be more trouble than it is worth to expel Arafat. He would have a world stage and would be able to conference with foriegn leaders sympathetic to the Palestinians. Then again it could blow up in the face of whoever takes him in, particularly if any evidence of his complicity in terrorist acts is discovered.

We'll see...

James -- Ummm... before his current gig, Arafat was the leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, a terrorist group. I think there's already plenty of evidence that he's a terrorist.
