      The news emanating from the Palestinian Authority predictably disclosed that the murderer of David Boim, an American high school student, had escaped. Arafat's simplistic explanation was that the prisoner, the only one of the three involved in the murder who has been caught to date, incredulously had been given a holiday by Arafat, and had not returned.

      This is yet another example of Arafat's serious crackdown on terrorism.
