The Palestinian Authority's Dictator

Arafat was elected to a five-year term eight years ago. Usually we call Presidents who don't allow new elections to take place and don't leave office when their term expires dictators.

He blamed Israel, of course, as his reason for cancelling the elections.

And since Arafat commands a 40,000 member armed police force (by day anyway) he is also Commander in Chief Arafat. That makes him a military dictator.

Oh, and as the foremost person to "symbolize and personify" the Palestinian cause to the world, was born in Egypt.

There is no Palestine. There is only Israel.
