Numerous commentaries about Arafat

Memorandum lists a raft of blogs writing about the passing of Arafat.
Too many for me to read this morning.
My personal view: Good-bye and good riddance.
It is becoming clearer that opinion shapers on the left went in the wrong direction when they seemed sympathetic with suicide killers. Palestinian suicide killers were the vanguard of that phenomenon, but as terrorist tactics and strategy components unfolded, suicide killing has emerged as one of their most obscene tools.

memeorandum: Archive Edition for Thursday, November 11, 2004: "Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, 75, the leader who passionately sought a homeland for his people but was seen by many Israelis as a ruthless terrorist and a roadblock to peace, died early Thursday in Paris."
