Faruq Kaddumi?

Reader comment on item: Arafat's Bedroom Farce

Is this possible?

Could Kaddumi actually take the helm?

You really shouldn't tantalize us with information like that without giving us some idea of it's likelihood.

And, if that actually occurs, couldn't matters get much worse for Israel, and of course the "Palestinians," just to mention the principles?

But if that happens, wouldn't the expectations of finding "someone to negotiate with" have to be put on hold"?

That would be a pity, because it would defer the realization, by those still in a Foggy Bottom fog, that those expectations are mere fantasy.

Actually, I suppose you would have told us if you thought this was a real possibility, but of all the scenarios that are left, I still can't think of any I like.

I wouldn't want to put money on any specific short term scenario, but I would be willing to wager that we are still in for some surprises.

How many of us were beginning to think it couldn't get any more interesting?

Thanks, Dr. Pipes, for this fascinating insight.
