Coming to a head

Slate's Lee Smith has a good article on life post-Arafat. He reasonably notes that the lack of civic institutions means that succession will be a Palestinian civil war where each side tries to out-do the other to prove who will be most ruthless against Israel.

Secondly, the excellent Belmont Club has his thoughts on UBL's recent surrender proposal. And here I was thinking that the guy was dead. But now UBL seems to be ready to call a truce against the Great Satan, is there some other enterprising young Jihadi out there ready to take the mantel of Defender of the Faith? In the market for Jihad, the top spot now seems to in play.

Finally, this is old now, read fellow U Chicago GSB alum Jane Galt's presidential endorsement. Thoughtful, thorough, insightful.
