ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to the Middle East peace process following the death of Palestinian Liberation Organization's chairman Yasir Arafat. The faithful of Arafat's Fatah movement were chanting slogans that they will stick to the supposedly moderate path of their departed leader. At the same time armed militants from the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, now renamed the Yasir Arafat Martyrs Brigades, marched across the Muqata compound in Ramallah in West Bank, where their leader was being buried, vowing to continue attacks on Israel.
