Today's sites are reporting "US, Britain threaten to withdraw Jericho wardens", i.e. the wardens guarding the Fuad Shubaki and Ahmed Sa'adaat under the terms of the agreement that ended the seige on Arafat's Ramallah compound. Apparently, the wardens have been subject to harrassement by the Palestinians.
Is anyone surprised? Did anyone really think that the arangement would last long? How can you take a bunch of Americans and Brits, dump them in the Middle East amongst some of the most ruthless terrorists, and expect them to carry out their duties in any normal manner? It was obvious that this was another short-term game to save Arafat's hide.
