Israeli officials said they hold Yasser Arafat responsible for Thursday’s suicide bombing in Jerusalem. The Al-Aksa Brigades, a militia of Palestinian Authority President Arafat’s Fatah movement, took responsibility. “Arafat is taking no action whatsoever, even the most minimal action” against terrorists, said Ra’anan Gissin, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
