NY Times letter 2002 June 19: Israel's Pain and Arafat's Future

Israel's Pain, and Arafat's Future

To the Editor:

Re ''Suicide Bomber Hits Jerusalem'' (front page, June 18) and ''Sharon Rejects Proposals for Interim Palestinian State'' (news article, June 17):

Suppose another country were killing dozens of Americans a week. Would America be rushing to make ''provisional'' reconciliatory gestures? Or would it do whatever was necessary to guarantee the safety of American citizens?

Jerusalem, June 18, 2002
