Add comment on:Black Muslims Respond to Arafat's Death
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, 75, died of unknown causes in Paris early on the morning of Nov. 11. His death is quickly capturing the attention of leaders across the globe. Some remember Arafat for his continuous quest for peace within Israel, as well as his much-documented push to create an independent Palestinian state. But others remain less inspired about the legacy he has left, finding disfavor with his political strategies and even charging that he was corrupt. But Akbar Muhammad, international representative for Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, says that Blacks should not let Arafat's critics cloud their opinions of him.
