    Thank you Mr.Danny for your explanation. Arafat ran and maintained power and authority just like the old Soviet leaders did. He corrupted every one with money, he used threats and murder making sure every one obey his orders. Those within Fatah and PLO were and are YES people without any sense of independance or any sense of shame. Arafat only legacy is that he ruined whatever was of great case.Fatah and the PLO continued on his path of selfserving without ever intending to work toward ending the Israeli military occupation.The PA is like n old Soviet state without any power or authority. Just look at the ministers and their VIP status of million dollars homes, cars for them, their wives, their children, their inlaws, and thier dogs. While they enjoy the good life, the people are starving and humiliated by an occupation they contracted to manage.
