US: Attack Iraq? Scott Ritter

Hank Levin asks: "In this message and others you assert that the Palestinians accept the existence of Israel. Are you certain of this? It would be helpful to get your interpretation of the material found on this website. It is certainly not reassuring to Israelis.

My response: There is a large number of statements on the subject from the Palestinians, the Arab League, and individual Arab states. To the best of my knowledge, all except Iraq and Syria have stated acceptance of Israel, but I would question the binding nature of such statements.
