I’m nobody, not so for you. I do not even have copy of the letter I sent to Arafat with suggestion concerning peace. When I wrote him I could have been prosecuted for donating $10.00 to the children of palestie, through Arafat, he was officially a “terrorist”. That was a couple of years before his Nobel Peace Prize. What is most inspiring is he wrote back, or more accurately, directed the No. 2 man of the PLO to reply. I am still working for peace, as if we do not accompolish what Richard Leakey termed the “intellectual revolution”, our species will go the way of all great predators, extinction, and soon.
