I was disturbed to read about the assassination of Arafat's human rights deputy. He sounds like a good man, and the obvious suspects would be Palestinians threatened by the existence of such a person. An excerpt from the NYT's article that made me shake my head in disgust:

"The cabinet meeting in Ramallah produced an agreement on one long-debated reform for the security forces, according to the Palestinian prime minister, Ahmed Qurei.

Mr. Arafat agreed that Palestinian security forces would have their pay deposited directly into their bank accounts, Mr. Qurei said. That system will replace an arrangement under which security chiefs received large bundles of cash to distribute individually to officers on payday."

Unbelievable. The EU donors had been satisfied with this level of transparency?
