With Gasoline Drawers On...

Well, Yasser Arafat has moved on, and now Palestine has lost the only thing standing between it and everlasting peace in that region. Not. That's what Bush wants you to think. However, pardon me if I take a little more of a cynical view of things. I don't think that Yasser Arafat is the key to this whole thing. The feeling that permeates the Palestine/Israel conflict is something that was embodied by Arafat, but it existed all through the country. The entire creation of Israel was a bad idea from the start and the only way to end this conflict is to give the entire West Bank to one side or another. America, Europe, Britain, and all of those other countries need to get their interests and dreams off the shoulders of these two countries and let them try to settle things out for themselves. All of the problems that America is having right now (foreign policy wise) is due to our sticking our nose in other people's business. Perhaps it would have been impossible for us to do that forever, but we should have tried to do that as much as possible. Now we have to deal with whatever happens in Palestine, Israel and Iraq. The future of the Middle East and our relations all over the Muslim world depends on what we do now.
