ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the effect of the death of Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat on the peace negotiations in Israeli-Palestinian conflict. For 35 years, Arafat dominated the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and refused to accept that his rule would end. A look at the men who must fill Abu Ammar's shoes, and the obstacles they'll face on the path to peace. Palestine Liberation Organization, taken over by Arafat in 1969, today it's a union of groups aiming to create a Palestinian state that can coexist with Israel. A radical Islamic fundamentalist group that rejects Israel's right to exist, Hamas has the support of 30% of Palestinians; it may field a presidential candidate.
