ARABS-ISRAEL - July 8 - Arafat Wants Stronger US Role.Arafat and other PA officials believe Powell's recent visit to the region made no impact on the deteriorating situation and want a far stronger US intervention. On July 9 Arafat's aide Ahmad Abdel Rahman was quoted by IHT IHT International Herald Tribune (newspaper)

But now six months have passed and they have international responsibility. I am reminding the Americans that President George Bush the father had started all this with the peaceful (late Oct./early Nov. 1991) meeting in Madrid". Arafat said he sent a letter to President George W. Bush on July 5 urging him to help Israelis and Palestinians "revive their hope in the peace process" and complaining that the Americans had allowed Israel, and not a neutral party, to be the judge of the efforts to restore calm. (The letter is a classic illustration of how differently the Israelis and the Palestinians perceive what is happening). Arafat said he told Bush: "Today, the seven-day calming period asked for by Mr. Powell ends". He said PM Sharon "has not even started looking at his watch". The letter said during those seven days, "nine Palestinians were killed, including five Israeli-sponsored assassinations... In spite of (the Israeli attacks), I am exerting 100% effort to stop Palestinian operations against Israel". (He did not mention that Israelis were killed by Palestinian gunmen in the same period).
On July 6 the departing US Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk Martin Indyk (born July 1 1951 in London, England) is an American diplomat and former United States ambassador to Israel. He grew up and was educated in Australia, gaining a BEcon from the University of Sydney in 1972 and a PhD in international relations from the Australian was quoted by The Jerusalem Post as saying Arafat had not yet made the "100% effort". He said Arafat "never really gave up violence as a tool for achieving his objectives" and backed Israel's view that calm had not been restored. But UN envoy Terje Roed-Larsen said Arafat was incapable of gaining complete control of a chaotic situation and bringing violence to an abrupt halt. Arafat said the CIA-sponsored Israeli-PA security meetings, including the most recent session at the US Embassy in Tel Aviv Tel Aviv (tĕl əvēv`), city (1994 pop. 355,200), W central Israel, on the Mediterranean Sea. Oficially named Tel Aviv–Jaffa, it is Israel's commercial, financial, communications, and cultural center and the core of its largest on July 6, had not proved productive. Without independent international observers in the field, Arafat added, it would be impossible to monitor either side's compliance with the ceasefire plan devised by CIA CIA: see Central Intelligence Agency.

(The bomber himself was a Palestinian with a Jordanian passport, and the militant Hamas group took responsibility for the attack). Arafat referred to another deadly terrorist attack in Israel, years ago, in which he said Palestinian collaborators with Israeli intelligence played a leading role. He added: "I have many secrets. You are speaking with General Yasser Arafat". (He appeared to be trying to make the point that the Tel Aviv bomber had no connection to the PA but did have links at least indirectly with Israel). Asked to spell out what he was suggesting, he said, "I'm giving you facts and leaving it for everyone to arrive to realities".
