True, but I don't think the Israelis would be sitting pretty with him gone either. I don't know how likely a situation like what we have right now in Gaza would be, but I don't think it could be discounted. Never mind his faults, Arafat did do a damn good job at holding the thousand different factions of the Palestinians together.
