We underestimated Anwar Sadat. All of us did. His impact on Arab politics, I now claim, has been bigger than Nasser. I will be writing an article on that soon for Al-Akhbar. He really changed a lot about Arab politics, from Maghrib to Mashriq. (Oh, and there is no one I detest in contemporary Arab politics than this Nazi).
