Dr. Nabil Ali Sha’ath is re-emerging as a lead stalwart person for the Palestinian cause. He was in the intense though ultimately fruitless post-Oslo negotiations with Shimon Peres, taking leave from his Cairo-Amman consulting firm TEAM. he was a minister in late Arafat cabinets who avoided the taint of corruption. He relates effectively to, and deserves the respect in which he is held by, the outside world, even the Americans. He holds a doctorate from the Wharton School. University of Pennsylvania. He has always been one of the few Palestinian leaders who was effective in dealings with the US State Department of Warren Christopher. Now only in his 60s, he has health, energy, smarts, and continuous experience at a high level on these issues since the 1980s. He deserves attention and respect for his integrity and candor in dealing with everyone who is sensible about the Israel-Palestinian mess, as well as the zealots on all sides.
