There are people who are most unprincipled in this world. Walid Jumblat comes to mind. And Bill Clinton is another. But Yasir `Abd-Rabbuh is one of the most unprinipled Arabs I know. Even when he was assistant secretary-general of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, he was under the tight control of Yasir `Arafat (who killed the cartoonist, Naji Al-`Ali). `Arafat was smart in that he would find the weakest and most corrupt individuals in every Palestinian organization: `Abd-Rabbuh in DFLP, Bassam Abu Sharif in PFLP, etc, and then shower them with perks and luxuries.
