Arafat's Legacy

So the father of modern terrorism is dead. He will memorialized as a hero to many, but what of his victims? The thousands of people for which he was responsible for having killed? Not everyone has forgotten their names or the fact that Arafat was responsible for their deaths. A round up of articles with parts of Arafat's background that will not make it in most of his obituaries:

Andrew McCarthy: The Father of Modern Terrorism

Elinor Brecher: The PLO Killed My Cousin

Cal Thomas: Yasser Arafat's Legacy

Martin Peretz: A Final Act of Stagecraft
