Dalal Mughrabi...I'm embarrassed to say I hadn't heard of her before Hezbullah had requested her body be included in the prisoner exchange. It is shameful that Arafat and Abbas have never even given this matter any thought and that it is Hezbullah which had to ask for these, not that I have a problem with them. Resistance-wise their credentials are impeccable and they have always had my full moral support. Still, as someone dear to me pointed out, Nasrallah had also once demanded the release of all the Palestinian prisoners. I don't honestly believe he has sold the Palestinians out in the name of pragmatism, but this does raise a few eyebrows. Still, he has always gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that whenever he promised, he delivered. I will adopt a wait and see attitude.
