“ The PLO, those in it subject to the authority of its chairman, Arafat, has stopped the terror before us, as they committed themselves in the Declaration of Principles. And yet, other terrorist organizations continue to attack us, because it is their political aim to murder Israelis, because they are Israelis, through acts of terror, in order to cause the cessation of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Because this is their aim, we have no intention of shirking from the efforts toward peace, even if the acts of terrorism continue to harm us.
