I had a conversation with my sister continuing the discussion on Arafat. She was of the position that his corruption was bad since it took away from the Palestinian's welfare. My feeling is that the best is no corruption and no government sanctioned terrorism. The next best is no government sanctioned terrorism but corruption followed by corruption and terrorism. The worst is no corrruption and terrorism. However the last thing almost never happens since those who rise to the top in terrorist organizations are generally not idealists. The exception is Osama bin Laden who is independently wealthy. This is why he is so dangerous.
