Here he is: [size=4]Palestinian security chief gunning for Arafat's job[/size=4] RAMALLAH — A Palestinian security chief with close ties to Israel and the United States has emerged as a leading player in the struggle to succeed Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat. Palestinian sources said Col. Jibril Rajoub, head of the PA Preventive Security Apparatus, has been meeting U.S. and European diplomats over the last month and has presented himself as the favorite to succeed the 72-year-old Arafat. Rajoub, 55, told the diplomats that he is the only Palestinian figure who can restore stability to the region and resume peace talks with Israel, the sources said. The claims by Rajoub has angered Arafat supporters as well as rivals within the PA. Critics assert that Rajoub has been criticial of Arafat's rule and can no longer claim to be a loyalist of the Palestinian leader. Rajoub has a force of more than 2,500 agents in the West Bank. The agency is regarded as the best-trained and equipped in the West Bank and enjoys close ties with the intelligence communities in Israel, the United States and the European Union. Arafat has used Rajoub to stop Palestinian mortar attacks on Jerusalem. The mortar attacks were renewed, however, on late Sunday amid escalating clashes between Israeli troops and Palestinian insurgents in the Bethlehem area. Rajoub also has warned the Damascus-based Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine to turn in its members suspected of assassinating former Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi, including PFLP secretary-general Ahmed Saadat. Palestinian sources said Rajoub's agency has arrested four PFLP members in a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Jerusalem. On Sunday, the PA banned the military wing of the PFLP, which claimed responsibility for the assassination of the Israeli.

Yeah, Yasser has come to the end of his usefulness. It is obvious he is unable to control the situation- because he cant bear to shoot a Palistinian. This guy sounds like he dont care to much as long as he gets to be the boss. We are probably just setting up another petty tyrant that we will have to take care of later, but it could solve the problem for now.

Could it be much worse than it already is?

Hmmmm... Will Arafat be smart and retire to Tunisia, or will he leave office as a lumpy, unshaven cadaver? BTW, I will be [b]very[/b] disappointed if Cheney attends Arafat's funeral. Let Carter and Clinton go to pay homage to the little terrorist.
