ABSTRACT
At long last, an inkling of progress in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. After an intense power struggle, Yasser Arafat and his newly minted prime minister, Mahmoud Abbas (aka Abu Mazen), agreed on a new Palestinian cabinet, paving the way for restarting the Mideast peace talks. In the face of mounting international pressure, Arafat accepted many--but not all--of Abbas's picks. Most important: his eventual nod to put Palestinian security forces in the hands of Mohammed Dahlan, the former head of security forces in the Gaza Strip and a respected moderate.
