"Why are Muslims so bonkers?" said
lass I am dating as we watched the arrival of Arafat's coffin in
Ramallah. (We weren't there, it was on TV.) I reminded her of the
reaction to England's rugby world cup win last year. "But
that was sport," she said. "This should be a state funeral." They
had that in Egypt, I told, her. Palestinians don't have a state.
And they are not all Muslims. "It could be more dignified," she
insisted. Maybe you're right, I conceded, and like when Diana died,
Palestinians should be piling teddy bears outside their leader's
compound with messages like: "Never knew you Yasser, but you
will always be the people's princess."

Critics say that Harold Pinter's poetry on the war lacked,
er, poetry. That is, his words too frankly depicted the brutality
of war. At the time, however, it was politicians that were the
poets, daily using its devices to twist truth: Repetition: "failed
to comply with UN Resolution 1441"; simile: "Saddam as
dangerous as Al-Qaeda"; and of course metaphor: "Stockpiles
of WMD" (barrels of oil). When politicians become poets, surely
poets can be excused for being frank, which in an ideal world is
what our elected representatives should be.
