A Significant Moment

Statement by the President

November 10, 2004


The death of Yasser Arafat is a significant moment in Palestinian history. We express our condolences to the Palestinian people. For the Palestinian people, we hope that the future will bring peace and the fulfillment of their aspirations for an independent, democratic Palestine that is at peace with its neighbors. During the period of transition that is ahead, we urge all in the region and throughout the world to join in helping make progress toward these goals and toward the ultimate goal of peace.

I guess that says it pretty well. He can't exactly say Good Riddance, now can he?

Good thing I'm not President. I'd want to say something like, "Throw the bastard in the ground and let's move on!" Heh.
