    When Arafat and Co. left Bayrout on chip to Tunis exile a milstone in Palestinian national struggle to independence and self determination was set. Two paths were offered to Palestinians: either join the US and israel's camp or face the consequences. Arafat, albeit manouvering and smarting choose to obey and join. Others like Hamas,jihad etc. continued the struggle. No national liberation ever faced that dilema. Now the PLO with corrupt and self serving members became an Israeli appendex for a variety of security purposes. Arabs after Kuwait liberation became enlisted in the US-Israel camp. Israel apparently had it all, except that the people are convined of their rights and final victories despite all odds. Israel too knows that without these unntural supports, from their supposed enemies, it is doomed.
