His primary aim ha,s and is to improve the lives and future of Palestinian people, unlike Arafat who cared only about himself, and Hamas who will sacrifice any and all Palestinian common on the altar of their maximalist goals He has showed incredible strength and fortitude in standing up to all the simple minded and unfair criticism, mainly from the mushed brained Western leftist, and Hamas groupies, who have called him a stooge, a tool of the occupation. (They,like Hamas, will fight till the last Palestinian) He has had to walk a tightrope between the impossible to deal with Israelis, and the unfair Americans, and the duplicitous Arab leaders. He is improving the lives of the people of the West Bank and at the same time he has stood fast against giving in to an unfair final peace deal. It would have been much easier for him to play the demagogue, but I think history will treat him well.
