I don't paticuarly like Dahlan but longer term its in the best interest of the palestinians to be run by the next generation. The Arafat generation grew up revolutionries with a dedicated ideology which they cannot compromise on. Dahan was never fighting with Arafat he us pure politician as a resut he is much more willing to make comproises and if the arabs want a state even if Abbas was talking he has never shown any willingness to make compromises and of they want any kind of state they are going to have to make compromises. Abbas is not even a ligitimate president anymore because elections were supposed to be held two years ago but Abbas unilaterally deided to suspend the election.
