    Rabin like Arafat, failed to face up to the truth and failed to tell his people what they should be told, the truth. Arafat, also could neve muster the courage and tell his people that a final settlement could not guarantee the right of return to all of his people. Rabin thought he could give Israel peace and security while continuing with the occupation. Arafat thought he could bring an end to the occupation, by a process that leads no where and by agreeing to an agreement he could not understand let alone read. Both men, did not have the courage to tell their people what it takes to have peace. Too bad, because if we had such courageous people, we would have peace many years, ago, before the suicide bombing, before the killing of thousands on both sides, before the building of the stupid wall, before all of the militias and thugs that rule Palestine, and befor Arafat wasted billions of dollars in corruption and incompetence. Leaders must have courage and vision and must stand up much taller than their citizens who sometimes could not see beyond one day. That is why there are LEADERS and then there are leaders.
