EUROPEANS WANT ARAFAT BUT NOT BUSH
Bravo Bush -
"I wouldn't deal with Arafat because I felt like he had let the former president down and I don't think he's the kind of person that can lead toward a Palestinian state," Bush said during a debate here with Democratic presidential challenger Senator John Kerry.
"People in Europe didn't like that decision," Bush went on.
"But it was the right thing to do. I believe Palestinians ought to have a state, but I know they need leadership that's committed to a democracy and freedom, leadership that would be willing to reject terrorism."
