Actually Arafat reportedly either agreed to or was considering some of the provisions, e.g. a token return of refugees with compensation paid to others (most wouldn't want to come back anyway, but wanted the right to return). And Bill Clinton proposed an oddball sovereignty for Haram Al Sharif / Temple Mount: Palestinian above the ground, Israeli below. Abu Quisling will suffer because many have forgotten what Arafat was willing to concede. Couple these with Wikileaks US cables referring to Abu Quisling as a weakling and he's not a candidate for Arafat's place - - "Stepfather of the Palestinian People" - - that's for sure.
