Arafat is doing what the Israeli's couldn't

It seems that Yassar Arafat, the old guy in charge of the PLO is in a spot of trouble. The Israeli's have been trying to remove him from power for years and couldn't do it. However, once he got a position of legitimate authority, he appears to be doing himself in.

The latest round of insanity appears to be due to his posting of a nephew to a high security position - which almost (and may still) lose him his control of he government.

Given the overall stability (or lack thereof) in the region, I don't know if removing him will be better or worse. However, if we could get rid of a sponsor of terrorism and replace him with someone TRULY interested in helping the Palestinians to gain world legitimacy, safety, and a future for their children, the world would be a better place.
