Essa é para quem - como alguns fizeram nos comentarios - ainda acha que Arafat era uma voz "moderada" e que com ele a chance de se alcançar a paz era maior:

Zachariah Zubeidi, head of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in Jenin, said he would not abide by the decisions of the central committee of Fatah, the dominant faction of which Arafat was commander-in-chief, unless it explicitly recognised the militants as its armed wing. “With Abu Amar [Arafat], I could be confident that I could handle resistance to the Israeli occupation knowing that he was taking care of the political work,” Mr Zubeidi told the Financial Times at a safe house in Jenin. “Now I am uneasy.”

Algo como "com ele eu sabia que eu podia fazer o que queria que ele limpava a barra".

Como disse James Lileks (via BOWT): "All you need to know about Arafat was that he insisted on wearing a pistol when he addressed the UN General Assembly. And all you need to know about the UN, I suppose, is that they let him."
