    I disagree, he ruled via corruption and hate. He was so power-hungry that there is now a problem as to who will take his place because everyone below him was far below him.

    Plus he's ugly.

    The thing that really pissed me off about Arafat was that he helped engineer the "permanent refugee status" of the Palestinians in various Middle Eastern countries. So for well over fifty years, the Palestinian people have remained in these squalid camps, which became breeding grounds for the most despicable sorts of hatred and terrorism, rather than declaring a cease fire and beginning to build normal lives. The West Bank could have easily become a Palestinian homeland, if Arafat and his fanatical minions had just been willing to live in peace.

    But, long story short, they were not willing to accept the facts on the ground. The relentless terror attacks against Israel have just pushed the Israelis father and farther into a militaristic defense posture that guarantees things like armored gun towers with permenant sniper positions, electrified fences, concrete barrier walls to prevent infiltration, continuous occupation patrols by the IDF, rubber bullet fusillades, bulldozing houses used by terrorists, etc., etc.

    I can understand why each side despises the other, after fifty years of killings, bombings, attacks and counter-attacks.

    Maybe with Arafat gone, the peace process can get going again.
