One has to consider the violent and virulent power of the
radical Islamic memeplex infecting many Palestinians. Arafat feared
assassination at the hands of the Radical Islamists much more than he

governmental collusion that Hamas (Zeal), Hizbollah (Party of God) and
Islamic Jihad (Islamic Struggle) enjoy to force their agenda upon a
necessarily compliant Palestinian Authority. In Israel, such people as
the assassinated Kach leader Meir Kahane are on the fringe; in
Palestine, they comprise the mainstream.
