In March 2002, Palestinians living in Ramallah, West Bank experienced firsthand effects of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's declared intention to beat Palestinians into suing for peace. But the Israeli assault on towns and refugee camps in Palestinian-controlled areas during March may have gone too far. The assault triggered international criticism and a rare rebuke from U.S. President George W. Bush. Increased hostility of Palestinians toward Israeli rule is probably the most incontrovertible consequence of the Israeli incursions.
