King of the Hill

Wolf Blitzer on CNN just segued into a report on Arafat with a line that the Palestinian people are asking themselves "What now? Who takes over?"

That's part of the problem with the Palestinian "State" - it's not one. It's an enclave ceded to and controlled by a gang of ruthless terrorists. Isn't there an "elected" Prime Minister? Shouldn't he have some role? No, instead it will be a dog-eat-dog struggle to see who ends up sitting on top of the ruins at Ramallah.
