- that the Americans propose he not pay any attention to any of the talk about Israeli comments or reservations about the Road Map;

- that the Palestinians cannot accept relinquishing the right of return, but "this does not mean we want to destroy the state of Israel";

- that "there might be a violent incident here and there, but those should be dealt with intelligently." I agree with him on this one.

- and that Arafat should not be isolated.
