Yasser Arafat told the Palestinian legislative council that he condemns “every act of terror against Israeli civilians,” but he did not say such attacks should be halted. A draft version of the speech obtained by The Associated Press contained several paragraphs calling for an end to suicide bombings in Israel, but Arafat left those paragraphs out of the speech he delivered.
