I thought Arafat was irrelevant

That's the Spanish Foreign Minister, Ana Palacio, during her state visit to Ramallah, May 28, 2003.

And this is Phil Goff, New Zealand Foreign Minister, with Arafat in Ramallah, May 29, 2003.

Last (because I can bear no more), but not least, Arafat with the "fridge bomber," released from prison by the Israeli government less than a week ago, as a goodwill gesture toward the Palestinians. In 1975, this man loaded a refrigerator with explosives and used it to murder 13 Israelis, and wound 70, in Jerusalem.
