Jerusalem and Arafat

"In a recent autobiography by a commander of the Maoist tendency in the Fatah Movement, the writer recalls his last exchange with the late Arafat in 2000. In the exchange, Mueen Al Taher asked Arafat, "Are you not concerned about the corrupt cronies around you?" Arafat replied, "History will not hold me accountable because of such figures; history will hold me accountable if I lose or reclaim Jerusalem."" (thanks Ihab)
