I am reading the autobiography of Marwan Kanafani. It is essential for anybody interested in the history of the PLO and the role of the lousy Yaser `Arafat. Kanafani is a good writer although I don't like his politics. He likes Arafat although he unwittingly shows up the petty, petulant, vindictive, autocratic, deceptive, and unprincipled sides of Arafat.
