Arafat And Me: Competition!
"If you go anywhere in Palestine or in the Occupied Territories I bet that you will find a photograph of President Arafat with at least one member, if not all the members of the family sitting right in the guest room. They put the photo in the guest room because they want to display it to everybody - it's a source of pride. If you find that photo in every home, then Yasser Arafat managed to strike a rather personal connection with almost every Palestinian. That's not a normal way of doing politics - that's not the White House or No. 10."
Dr Husam Zomlot, Fatah Spokesperson in The Price of Kings: Yasser Arafat
Almost all our interviewees spoke of Yasser Arafat's ability to remember the names, faces of almost every person he met and to connect with them in an unusually warm manner. And it wasn't just at home; as a campaigning President, he visited hundreds of countries on diplomatic missions and met hundreds of people.
We'd love for you to send us your snaps with the President. So whether you're Palestinian or not, if you have a photo of you or your family with President Arafat - we'd love to see it and display it in our gallery.
As a taster, we've included some photos of some of our contributors with Arafat. Check them out, and get sending!
