I wish this would run on television all over the world

Arafat and other Muslim/Arab extremists were never rational actors. What a tragedy for Israel and the West to assume it would be possible to negotiate a reasonable settlement with such people....

Thank G-d Arafat rejected the proposal!

No other PM would have made an offer like Barak's. It was insane, and never would have been approved by the Israeli population. Remember the pullout from Gaza?? The way people clung to their land, their homes? How could they EVER be torn away from Yehuda & Shomron, not to mention parts of Yerushalayim? Hashem hardened Arafat's heart as he did Pharaoh's. Chas v'shalom, such a plan would have meant civil war in the State of Israel.

Regarding President Clinton's efforts to bring peace to the Middle East

President Clinton needs to review this video clip, since he recently made the comment that the reason for the failure of his efforts was Israel. That is not what is apparent in this video.

Vital video, everyone needs to see it

Given the deniers and those who, like Robert Malley, try to rewrite history, this video has to be publicized as widely as possible. IT MUST BE SEEN BY EVERYONE!!! After all, who can argue with the man at the centre of the negotiations.

An important history

Many blame Israel for not "creating" a Palestinian state, and thereby prolonging the conflict. It's important to note that the Israelis want two states for two peoples, and have repeatedly offered this. Palestinian rejectionism is the Palestinian leadership's responsibility.
