Israel said it is cutting off all contact with Yasser Arafat. The move came after a series of recent terrorist bombings, including one Wednesday in which 10 Israelis were killed when Palestinians bombed a bus in the West Bank and then shot fleeing passengers. The Palestinian Authority president “is directly responsible for the series of attacks and therefore is no longer relevant to Israel,” the Security Cabinet said in a statement.
