Arafat’s Problem

I’m seeing more and more speculation that Arafat is dying of AIDS.

I would normally frown on outing someone, but I make an exception for “the father of modern terrorism.” I think he lost his right to privacy and dignity when he ordered his first murders many years ago.

If this is true, I doubt this will hurt his reputation among the French and other leftist admirers (after all, he stood up to the Jews), but it will really damage his legacy among his own people; and that’s what he would have cared about more.

What a shame!

With Arafat out of the way, the Palestinians have a new opportunity to turn away from the policy of terrorism and choose a peaceful path that actually has a chance of success.

Let’s all hope they take advantage of it.
