RAMALLAH, West Bank — It has been 10 years since Palestinians began an uprising that swept away peace talks, triggered a ferocious reaction by the Jewish state and left thousands dead on both sides.

Exactly why it happened just as Palestinian statehood seemed attainable is a mystery, fed by conspiracy theories and competing narratives from across the political spectrum.

This week comes an intriguing twist: One of the leading figures in Hamas seems to confirm that Yasser Arafat was playing a double game — encouraging Islamic militants to attack inside Israel while publicly insisting he was trying to stop the violence.

“seems to confirm that Yasser Arafat was playing a double game — encouraging Islamic militants to attack inside Israel while publicly insisting he was trying to stop the...”

Arafat was the father of modern terrorism and practically invented the practice of high jacking airliners. He never played a double game-he was always an advocate of terrorism. It’s the media that chose to pretend otherwise.

There’s no “mystery” why peace didn’t happen. It didn’t happen because that “Palestinian” piece of shit Yasser Arafat didn’t want it to happen. “Moderate Palestinian” Abu Mazen doesn’t want it to happen either.

We had no idea that Arafat unleashed an intifada on the citizens of Israel.

He’d say in English that he was for peace, then immediately turn around and state in arabic that they need “a hundred thousand martyrs in Jerusalem.”
