This story about Palestinians demonstrating against Arafat really surprised me...I do not share Stephen Green's optimism when it comes to whether Arafat will win the next "election", if it ever happens, basically because (1) I do not think a viable candidate will run against him, unless it is some Hamas-psycho-killalloftheinfidels candidate, (2) I don't think that Arafat will let himself be defeated in the election...However, the fact that the Palestinians are demonstrating against Arafat is good...It means that they still have hope of a better life and are not so blind with rage against Israel that they can still blame the actual cause of a lot of their problems (i.e. Arafat) instead of just blaming Israel...
