I am so glad that I was not there. I would not want to see George Habash like this. That is not he image that I retain of him. I will remember him fiery and angry and eloquent. I stayed until 4 AM last night to watch live coverage of his funeral. It was a mistake. It was too painful for me. This man opened my eyes on Palestine at an early age, and his example made me detest `Arafat at the age of 12. And what was Yasir `Abd-Rabbuh doing at the funeral? And why was he not pelted with eggs--very rotten eggs?
