Last week on Fox News Sunday, Charles Krauthammer characterized the todo surronding Yasser Arafat’s impending death as “the death-watch of a Mafia Don.”

I had a little trouble buying this at first. But after piecing this all together, from his wife’s insisting that he dies in France (where she has better legal claim to his ill-gotten assets), to the recent Palestinian-on-Palestian terrorism, nothing could be more spot-on. I fear that, despite the request for US help with elections, assention to the head of the PA will be far more of a turf-war than a political process.
