    On March 31, 2005, thirty years after feminism’s hey-day in the 1970s, a woman died from dehydration, on the orders of her adulterous husband, who was supported by the courts in his quest to end his wife’s life. On February 25, 1990, Theresa Schindler Schiavo collapsed in her home and suffered significant brain damage.

No one knows how much money may be involved but various sources put Arafat’s personal fortune at between $4.5 billion and $6.5 billion. Arafat’s nephew Nasser Al-Qudwa, however, has said that the late leader’s fortune did not exceed $250 million, mostly invested in real estate and two mobile phone companies in North Africa. While most Palestinians insist that Arafat did not personally benefit from corruption, all...
