ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Palestinians see in former Palestine Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat the father of their nation. Like a father, he did much for his children, but he was also often overprotective of them. Arafat was a difficult figure to come to terms with. He did more than any other leader to forge a unique and separate Palestinian identity. He was the voice and symbol of the Palestinian cause, which his tireless efforts brought to the forefront of the international agenda and kept there for four decades.
