Another thought about Arafat.... 

Is there ANY sane, rational person who actually will miss this man? For crying out loud, it was PLO terrorists who took and later assassinated Jewish hostages at the Munich games in 1972. In the 70s and 80s they took airliners hostage. Arafat was notorious (along with other leaders and his wife) for saying one thing to the west in English, namely that all the Palestinian people wanted was to leave in a land of their own in peace next to Israel. What he told the "arab street" though is that he wanted to eradicate Israel and throw the country into the sea. This little rabble rouser won't be missed by this commentator. I trust that after the state funeral, people will bury the man, his remains and remember only his true legacy: that of violence and unrest.
