Palestine-Israel, Politics, 1/30/2003
The Palestinian President Yasser Arafat has announced he wishes to meet with the Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon immediately and to return back to the negotiations in order to end the conflict.
Meantime, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad movements and the People's Front for the Liberation of Palestine called for escalating resistance operations against the Israeli occupation.
In an interview with the Israeli TV on whether he will sit with Sharon after his winning the elections in Israel, Arafat said that the Palestinians are persistent to return back to the table of negotiations as soon as possible. Arafat added that he is ready for "general truce." He continued that the Palestinian leadership had announced such a truce repeatedly, hoping to have peace established in the "land of peace." Meantime, the founder of the Hamas movement Sheikh Ahmad Yassin said that Sharon had, being in power in Israel for the two past years, failed to meet his promises to bring security and economic prosperity for the Israelis and because of that, there is no need for Israel to celebrate his re-election."
