Myth Busting - 2000 Intifada was deliberately planned by Arafat

I like myth busting.  A popular myth is that the 2000 Intifada was started randomly due the extreme incitement by Ariel Sharon touring the Temple Mount.

Well, interesting that Suha Arafat has now come out and explained how it was all planned by Arafat himself.

Given the level of violence had been rising for some time, it is often made out that the violence just started.

I had a debate with Nigel Parsons (of Massey University) at the time.  Himself a one-eyed reporter who was actually in Ramallah at the time.  But thankfully the truth has now come out.
