"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

The former head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine called for Arafat to step down.

“Although I advise Arafat to seriously consider resigning and stepping down, I don’t believe he will accept this … for a variety of reasons,” Habasyh said. “He wants to be the first president of the state of Palestine ­ any state, irrespective of its nature, even if it is a token nominal state without any of the features of a state other than the flag, the guard of honor and the red carpet.
“Perhaps … Arafat’s role has not ended as far as the US administration is concerned,” he said. “It is banking on him and the PA offering concessions,” especially as “America and Israel have not managed to find a Palestinian Hamid Karzai.”
