Here's my Arafat anecdote of the day. It comes from My Life Bill Clinton's bloated Valentine to himself.
After Camp David, the ever-deceitful Yasir Arafat thanked Clinton for his efforts to promote Middle East peace and lauded him as “a great man.” The president replied, referring to Arafat’s serial rejections of his and Israel’s successive peace proposals:
“Mr. Chairman, I am not a great man. I am a failure, and you have made me one.”
