what the palestinian people need is a "ghandi" of sorts to rise from their own ranks...who can lead them to take the higher moral road...and hopefully through righteousness they can regain their dignity and rights. so far we haven't seen any such person...i pray there is one out there somewhere who will show his or her face soon.

This was posted in December 2001, so far there is still no one coming forward that fits the bill. The current view is the hardline tactics being played out by Israel and tacitly supported by the US is that this is the end game for Arafat as the leader.
Unless he changes dramatically his policies on Hamas et al he will be gone soon.
So who takes over?

In the same post exwa said this:
truth is, what i hear from people who are either from palestine, or who have family there is that the majority of the people are not very religious.

In an Islamic country how can the people not be religious when their laws and practices are built upon the religion?
