Palestine: Visiting Arafat's Tomb

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Israel, Palestine, History, International Relations

Fugitive Peace [1]blogger Gideon Lichfield recently visited Arafat's tomb. He reports: “I paid my first visit to Yasser Arafat’s new mausoleum… It’s an austere, brilliant pearl incongruously plopped in the middle of the ramshackle Muqata complex, the presidential headquarters: a cube-shaped mausoleum at the end of a long plaza, with mosque off to one side.”
