"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Silvio Burlusconi, PM of Italy, backed Bush yesterday and called for Arafat to step donw. He said it in high style, but he said it nonetheless.

"Many people are convinced that Arafat, a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, should make a generous gesture and move aside," Mr. Berlusconi said. "If I were President Arafat I would make a grand gesture that would enable him to go down forever in history as the man who gave everything for the freedom of his country."

I have no problem with that. Fine step down and let their history books call him the founder of Palestine and blah blah blah. Just get the hell out!
