A message to the Sharon administration: DON'T ASSASSINATE ARAFAT. It will be a mistake that will have negative consequences that will be unparalleled in their intensity, and will unleash global condemnation and outrage from the Muslim world. And, most importantly, it will set a very dangerous precedent. Sure, Arafat is an arch-terrorist; but so is Sharon, who is just as much a hard-liner asshole and very dangerous man. Do the Palestinians, therefore, have the same right to assassinate Sharon? Of course they don't. And neither should the Israelis. It's a very volatile situation as it is. Ariel, for the good of your nation, don't make it worse.
