The Fatah Facebook page is literally filled with images of Arafat. It has hundreds, and scores have been posted in the past month before this minor anniversary.
More interestingly, Mahmoud Abbas is relegated to a minor role in the Fatah Facebook page, with only occasional stories about him. He is lost in the glare of Arafat worship.
So Abbas does what he has to do - he tries to get some of Arafat's popularity reflected on him.
Abbas' Fatah rival, Mahmoud Dahlan, is meanwhile releasing his own photos and videos showing how tight he was with the old terrorist.
This is not simply marking an anniversary. This is worship..
But it also shows that since Arafat died, Palestinians have no direction, no original ideas, nothing to look forward to. Their glory is in the past when Arafat called all the shots. There is nostalgia for the good old days of terror attacks under Arafat's rule.
And really, since the syphilitic murderer finally died, what has the Palestinian Authority or Fatah done on their own? Essentially nothing., Arafat set their strategy of using the peace process as a Trojan horse to destroy Israel in stages, and they are following it slavishly.
So they are stuck in the past, with their unceasing obsession with anniversaries (of Arafat's death, the Balfour Declaration, the UN Partition Plan, - and that is just this month.)
While Israelis are building and creating and innovating, Palestinians cannot move beyond the Arafat era.
