The ideological alliance between Osama Bin Laden and Yasser Arafat, along with the pictures of the Palestinians celebrating the death and injury of tens of thousands of Americans as a result of terrorism, aroused nausea throughout the world. Now they better understand who it is that we are dealing with. Israel too needs at this time a leader that will seize the moment and take action against terrorism with means that they have not dared use until now. Ariel Sharon knows exactly what this refers to.
Israel now has a rare opportunity to turn world public opinion around in its direction and to take diplomatic and military action that it has refrained from taking until now for fear of international reactions.
