Henri Barkey, chair of the international relations department at Lehigh, was interviewed concerning the Kurdish outrage surrounding the U.S.'s plan to send 10,000 Turkish troops to Iraq. "Look at the contradiction here," said Barkey. "The Iraqis now have an interim foreign minister who's a Kurd, who's attending the Arab League meeting in Cairo. He's there to represent Iraq, and we say he has full power. Some Arab countries did not want to even accept him. We put pressure on them. And then we say what these guys think is not important, we're going to decide who comes in (to Iraq)."

Barkey said he believes the attack will galvanize the weight of public opinion against the Palestinians. "I think it's very significant because it will consolidate the American opinion with respect to the Palestinians' ability to deal with extremist groups," he said.
