ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the decisions facing Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat after the failure of the Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations at Camp David in Maryland. To the Palestinians, making peace with Israel means an admission of weakness, shaming them publicly. The cultural perception of shame is what maintains the unbridgeable divide between Arabs and Israelis. For Arafat himself, peacemaking will require a radical and comprehensive rendering of his mindset. From the very start, his career has been based on violence. He is a hoodlum and racketeer, one responsible for the deaths of many thousands of innocent people in deliberate atrocities.
