As his life played out, Yasser Arafat brought death and destruction to the Palestinian people, not 3 years after his death, he still brings death and destruction. As protestors in the Gaza strip Rallied, Hamas terrorist forces fired amongst the crowed, killing at least five people and wounding over 100 others.
This is a shining example of why peace with the Palestinians will never come to fruition, they are a violent people with corrupt leaders that sacrifice the people for their own benefit.

At least five people have been killed in gunfire at a rally organised by Fatah in the Gaza Strip to mark three years since the death of Yasser Arafat.Security forces from the rival Hamas movement opened fire at crowds causing people to run for cover, reports say.

The iconic Palestinian leader died in Paris on 11 November 2004.
Since his death Palestinian politics has been riven by splits, the most violent between the secular nationalist Fatah party and the radical Islamist group Hamas.
Hundreds of thousands of Fatah supporters, carrying pictures of Arafat and waving yellow Fatah flags had gathered in a large square in the centre of Gaza City.
Hamas security officials said they fired toward protesters who threw stones at security compounds.
About 100 people were reported wounded when shots were fired as crowds started chanting slogans accusing Hamas of being a proxy for Shia Muslim-ruled Iran.
