      I hope that I did reach your mind and heart for the benefit of peace and justice. May be we agree, may be not, but words have to reach everybody, this is what the point of view is all about.

      Sharon's Plan for Arafat

      By Dr. Hatem Bazian, Wed-02-Jan-2002

      One main goal and analysis of Sharon's actions toward the Palestinians need to be understood and that being the desire to bring about an end to the Oslo peace process. How can this be done?

      The Oslo agreement is linked to the persona of Yasir Arafat and his ability to deliver the needed signatures on behalf of the Palestinians. Thus, the only real way to end Oslo is by getting Arafat out of the picture (i.e.) death of Arafat.

      However, it should not be Israeli hands that bring this forth; rather it should be an internal Palestinian event which brings this about. Just like Rabin's death was an internal Israeli affair so must Arafat's death.

      Sharon has been working earnestly to create or fomenting internal tension within the Palestinian Authority in a way that can bring about a decision from a group within, which no longer views Arafat’s actions to be in their best interests, and undertakes his assassination.

      Such an assassination would be the best case scenario for Sharon and the right wing for it brings about the following:

        1.. A split within the ranks of the Palestinian Authority.

        2.. A split among the various parts of Fatah.

        3.. An internal struggle for power within the PA and Fatah.

        4.. An internal struggle with opposition groups who would assert their influence.

        5.. Israel would begin to support some parts of the Palestinians against others as a means of creating Sharon's plan for autonomy. (Controlled Palestinian Civil war)

        6.. Attacks on Israelis will take place during this period without a strong central authority.

        7.. Sharon, citing a greater security threat, will be able to have a freer hand in implementing harsher measures which might include the transfer of Palestinians.

        8.. Sharon has decided that it would be better for Israel to have the Islamic forces in charge of Palestinian affairs because he would have more sympathy from the West in fighting "Islamic fundamentalist" terrorism.

        9.. Sharon's transfer plan would be put in motion. This can only be accomplished under a condition of "managed" chaos. Throughout history massive civilian movement across borders have happened once the appropriate conditions have been created, and war is the best tool for such an undertaking.

      Sharon and his kitchen cabinet ministers are ideologically committed to transfer ((although 68% of Israelis support it if the transfer does not lead to Israel suffering internationally i.e. the West might not have the stomach to see thousands of people displaced) and if conditions on the ground make it feasible then it will be pursued.

      The beauty in this for Israel and Sharon is they will blame Arafat for not taking the Camp David deal and thus being responsible for all what will take place.

      We most certainly will hear some Israelis with the distinctive New York accent remind us that the "Palestinians never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity."

      Never mind that the current Israeli prime minister stands accused of war crimes. In this new world order "might makes right" and the Palestinians have been found to be "wrong" because they are weak.

      Sharon has decided to take out Arafat but he needs Palestinians to pull the trigger for no Israeli wants to have the blood of Arafat on his/her hand. You ask why?

      Arafat would be an even more powerful symbol for the Palestinians if killed by Israel. On the day after his death the number of Israelis who would lose their lives would be in the hundreds: No Israeli leader can last a day if this takes place for he would be blamed for the loss of Israeli life.

      Sharon might be the kind of person who is ready to take this kind of risk but others around him would counsel him to use one of the Palestinian collaborators to do Israel’s dirty work.

      It is my belief that Arafat's days are numbered and the search is on for a replacement who can give Israel more.

      I pray for the best but I am afraid that some horrific days are ahead for the Palestinians.
