At least 89 U.S. senators signed a letter to President Bush supporting his decision not to meet Yasser Arafat. The letter, being circulated by Sens. Kit Bond (R-Mo.) and Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), praises the pressure Bush has placed on the Palestinian leader to control violence. The letter also asks that the White House continue to support Israel’s right to defend itself.
