According to al-Jazeera, Arafat will appoint a new Prime Minister unless Abu Mazen agrees to his demands regarding the Internal Affairs post. The article painted a grim picture of the entire situation. At the same time, the European Union has said they will only accept Abu Mazen as Prime Minister. If Arafat loses legitimacy with the EU, it's hard to see how he could survive as more than a sort of institutionalized civilian warlord in the Occupied Territories. But being Arafat, he seems insistent on clinging to shreds of power he's proven he can't accomplish anything with. Haaretz claims Dahlan has even offered to accept another post in the government, but Arafat seems intent on leaving control of the PA's internal security forces in the hands of someone loyal to him. This is really a crucial power struggle, and even with everything else going on doesn't deserve to be buried the way it is.

I got invited to Jill and Dominic's wedding today...the last of the QU romances to be finished off. Somehow that seems like the end of an era. (Not that I've managed to get a date since then...)
