My hommage to Yasser Arafat

By Unamore (Marijke van Velzen), painter in Amsterdam

For me, Yasser Arafat was a Palestinian leader whose soul was immersed in the awareness that the Palestinian people is a people of the sun and should be allowed to live in freedom, in the same way as the sun rays give their light to everything that lives on earth. In him lived the vision of an oasis of peace and light on earth, of dance and harmony. He knew that this balance could be restored for the whole of the earth when his people could live in peace in their own authenticity. He totally dedicated his life to this purpose, with all the shortcomings that unfortunately were inevitable for him.
