Arafat Worship Pathology

Why the American Left (and synonymously the Big Media) sanitize and respect this terrorist thug is a mystery that likely further explains the Blue vs Red State differences.

We Red State types just don't get the worship of a murderer.

Charles Krauthammer does not see light looking into Arafat's tomb.

[T]he prospects for peace upon his death are far more distant than the naifs (who got him wrong all through his life) now insist. Arafat's legacy -- the romanticization of violence, the rejection of Israel, the indoctrination of a new generation in intolerance and hatred -- will require a long time to undo. It will require years, perhaps even generations. It will require brave new Palestinian leaders who are the very antithesis of Yasser Arafat.
