Bush declares: "We must get rid of Arafat"

Maybe it was the "christmas drinks" talking?

JERUSALEM, (AFP) - US President George W. Bush told an Israeli journalist that "we must get rid of" Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat (news - web sites), the mass-circulation Yediot Aharonot daily has reported.

Bush's comments came in a brief exchange with the paper's correspondent during a Christmas drinks party in Washington, several hours after a keynote speech by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (news - web sites) Thursday in which he outlined plans for unilateral disengagement from peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

Time for another delicious mug of Pre-emptive Action.
