It’s always reassuring to know

It’s always reassuring to know that we are on the opposite side from Sweden and the United Nations. The same Arab News article quotes the execrable Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh calling Bush’s demand for Arafat’s ouster “neither acceptable nor politically wise,” in part because “we don’t know what risks coming after Arafat.” Kofi Annan sounded the same note, warning that Palestinian elections might be won by “radicals.” So we should be stuck with Arafat forever for fear the situation could get worse? God forbid the Palestinians should fall into the hands of radicals!
