Vice President Al Gore is warning that it would be “unwise” for Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat to deliver on his promise to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state later this year. In a New York campaign stop before the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the Democratic presidential candidate said Arafat should not assume a declaration “would have a positive outcome for them.” Gore also suggested that Arafat’s threat is more for internal Palestinian consumption.
