Yes indeed, no doubt an "overzeleous" reminder from Arafat's "legacy".
I have as little expectation that the Palestinian Arabs will be able to
overcome this "legacy" as I would have for the Iraqi's to have been able
to kick out Saddam on their own. A legacy and culture of thugs with
guns entrenched in power in the Palestinian Arab territories is not
dissimilar to the dystopia that was Saddam's Iraq.
