Arafat's Dream Never Realized
For virtually his entire adult life, Yasser Arafat had one dream, and he pursued it with such energy and zeal -- some would say fanaticism -- that he came to personify the dream itself. The dream was of self-determination and statehood for the Palestinian people, and in the end he did not live to see it.
A close-up view of the life and legacy of the iconic leader and Nobel laureate who came to embody the hopes and aspirations of the Palestinians and their quest for a homeland. Narrated by The Post's Lee Hockstader.
