Maariv reports:

According to a report published in Tuesday’s “Dar al- Hayat”, an Arabic language newspaper published in London, Israel will allow Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat freedom of movement in exchange for a Palestinian pledge to end terror attacks in the Gaza Strip. The paper quotes diplomatic sources as saying that the proposal was made when Egyptian Intelligence Chief, Omar Suleiman met with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and GSS director Meir Dagan on Monday. Suleiman met with Arafat at his besieged headquarters in Ramallah Monday afternoon and relayed the message, the sources say. —- According to the report, Israel will remove travel restrictions from Arafat if Palestinians end terror attacks in the Gaza Strip and if the Palestinian security mechanisms are given full control to keep order there. Israel agrees to train the Palestinian security groups for that purpose, the sources are quoted as saying.

Hello, McFly! This is the whole basis of the Middle East “peace process,” in which Afatrat gave his word that terrorism would cease, in exchange for certain Israeli assurances, including the training of PLO Arab security forces in order for them to take over areas under their control. Eleven or so years down the track, I would like to think that we have learned something. The only freedom of movement we should allow Afatrat is between his jail cell and the electric chair.
