Is this the same way Sharon sparked the current Intifada by visiting the Temple Mount?!
For those of you who are not quite sure whether my sarcasm is valid, don't take my word for it. Take Imad Falouji's (Palestinian Authority Communications Minister) words on March 3, 2001:
Whoever thinks that this [war] started as a result of Sharon's despicable visit to Al Aksa is in error. It was planned since Arafat's return from Camp David [where he] firmly stood up to Clinton and rejected the U.S. terms.For more on this, read palestinefacts.org: What Started the Al Aksa Intifada?
(Note: if you believe congratulatory phone calls spark violence, you will probably remain unconvinced)
