By George Jones
Boozing. Womanizing. Brawling. making a song. For the final 40 years George Jones has reigned because the country's king--the singer many have referred to as the Frank Sinatra of kingdom. And for many of that point, his occupation has been marked by means of hard-living, hard-loving, and tough success. From his early east Texas recordings via his marriage with Tammy Wynette to his newest acclaim as an effective citizen and "high-tech red-neck," american citizens were eager about Jones, by no means even understanding even if he's going to teach up for his subsequent concert.
Now, in I Lived to inform all of it, George Jones offers a no-holds-barred account of his excesses and ecstasies. How alcohol governed his existence and performances. How violence marred many friendships and relationships. How cash used to be anything to be made yet by no means hung on to. And, ultimately, how the affection of a great lady can finally swap a guy, redeem him, and store his existence.

How could the idea of improving Palestinian living standards or raising a new generation in a state of its own compete with the vision of a glorious endless battle for total victory, no matter what the cost? How could humanitarian values or even tactical limits be introduced into the movement? Arafat's narrow, almost totally tactical vision did not go far beyond believing that his end justified any means. He told an Arab interviewer: I have nothing, for I was banished and dispossessed of my homeland.
He was using the nom de guerre Abu Muhammad. 77 By mid1965, he was in Damascus to set up headquarters there. 78 If Nasser had the PLO, Damascus would counter with its own Palestinian group, Fatah. While the PLO only issued threats, Syria would prove its revolutionary credentials by actually sponsoring attacks against Israel. 79 The first training camps for Fatah fighters were opened in Syria, with one hundred volunteers, and Algeria in 1964. Recruits were paid 18 British pounds a month, a good salary in those days.
At the time Fatah was founded and for many years thereafter, most Palestinians did not share Arafat's Palestinian nationalist views. Instead, they expected that Arab states would unite behind Egypt's wildly popular Nasser, not a Palestinian movement and leader, and would launch a conventional war, not a guerrilla or terrorist assault, which would eliminate Israel. Once Israel disappeared, it would be replaced not by a Palestinian state but by the Palestinian province of a much larger Arab country.
