I applauded Arafat when he displayed the same kind of courage as Sadat and made an agreement with many sacrifices involving delay of huge questions that left the ultimate status of Palestinian Arabs. I remember praying that history not make him a traitor to his people. What has Palestinian acceptance and negotiation accomplished for the Palestinians but misery? I pray to the God of Existence that future leaders of the Palestinians be wiser than Arafat and Abu Mazen.
