Legacy of Arafat
I cannot think of a present day leader other than Clinton and Bush, who had more name recognition than Yaseer Arafat, and whether you call him a freedom-fighter or a terrorist (I prefer the former), in his death the world has lost an important leader.
See how everyone is jumping on the media bandwagon in calling for renewed peace talks? All these people are interested in peace; but none of them is interested in justice.
For me, the legacy of Araft is marked by two events. First is the transformation of a guerilla leader into a statesman. The second is his failure to seize the opportunity in the last days of Clinton administration and make a lasting deal.
By popular request, I am releasing an upgrade to SimplyBlog source code this weekend. So send me your wishlist by tommorrow.
