A great statesman has passed away today. However with death also comes new hope. The creation of a Palestinian state should continue and hopefully with it comes peace.
Yasser Arafat will forever be remembered for his courage in protecting the cause and people of Palestine and promoting the creation of a Palestinian state. Unfortunately there are people who are determined to undermine his work. These people wishes to continue the illegal siege on the people of Palestine.
But former enemies can become friends. Like France and Germany. It is just sad that the he was not able to live to see the creation of an independent Palestine state which can live side by side with its old foe.
