In an interview for HARDtalk on Tuesday 2nd November, Tim Sebastian talks to Dr Azzam Al-Tamimi Director of the Institute of Islamic Political Thought in London.

On Monday a Palestinian suicide bomber killed at least three people and wounded around thirty in a Tel Aviv market place.

The Palestinian leader was taken to Paris last week for medical tests.

Where does he see the post Arafat future for the Middle East?
