Palestinian Descent into Chaos

Reader comment on item: Palestinian Descent into Chaos

Unfortunately there is another way this problem could be ended by Arafat. It is the way he has controlled until now. With bribes that he will spread around. If he should get an infusion of big time cash from his European supporters or Arab brothers you will suddenly see a burst of calm which he will take credit for. I suspect that this is the actual crux of his problem. Saddam is gone, The Saudi's are dealing with their own problems and don't want to be caught with green hands and the French don't have their Iraqi "food" profits.
