Maybe this article should be merged with Karine A? AnonMoos 02:37, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Broader implications -- Breakdown of trust between Bush and Arafat
I think that this incident played a significant role in the final break-down of whatever small lingering remnant of confidence and trust George W. Bush still had in Arafat -- I seem to remember rumors that Bush took strong personal offense to what he felt was Arafat's direct personal lying to him over Karine A. This set the stage for Bush tacitly aquiescing in Israel's West Bank offensive of April 2002, and Bush's major mideast speech of June 24th 2002 (which was anti-Arafat, and in large measure removed American pressure on Israel to make any concessions until and unless the Palestinians first cracked down against terrorism).

In media coverage, this incident was rarely mentioned by its Israeli military operation name, "Noah's Ark." I propose that the article be renamed the "Karine A Affair," with "Operation Noah's Ark" redirecting to this page.ShamWow (talk) 19:07, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
