IMO, Arafat was not an obstacle to peace. He is often characterized as such,
but only by those who wish the Palestinian people would simply roll over or
go away. The favorite thing that those who characterize Arafat this way is
his withdrawal from Camp David II, but this is only done by those who failed
to read the proposal that some sought to impose on him there.
So I don't think that the next Palestinian leaders will be better able to
advance peace in the area. The peace process itself is dead in the water,
and a new design will have to be found. It is going to be very difficult,
and I don't see it happening in the near future. It is possible that some
partial agreements between the Palestinians and Israelis will be possible,
given the need for both sides to appear reasonable to international eyes,
but it is almost certain that they will be on secondary or tertiary issues,
and not the core issues that must first be resolved if any genuine move
toward peace is to be accomplished.

<< How more SYMBOLIC can his death be, dying on what is
internationally celebrated as Armistice Day !? >>
Now that he dies, will the peace- proces get some new doing !?
Just a thought.....
