No, it doesn't sound promising. It sounds like the same old vague statements.
The PLO Coventant (their constitution) calls for the destruction of Israel. 12 years ago at Oslo, the PLO signed an agreement that -- among other things -- called for them to change their covenent.
They haven't yet done so. They did "pretend" to do so, and the world community pretty much fell for the trick.
See here for details:
So, shaggy, it still comes down to this: The PLO's basic intent is to destroy the state of Israel; it has always been so, and they've done nothing to change that.
Also, Shaggy, are you aware that Arafat routinely gives different and conflicting messages depending on what language he uses? When he speaks English, he's all for compromise and peace. Then he speaks to his supporters in Arabic and calls for Jihad.
