    JERUSALEM (AP) - The Palestinian security chief (Jibril Rajoub) in the West Bank pledged his loyalty to Yasser Arafat on Wednesday, a day after witnesses said the Palestinian leader (Yasser Arafat) pulled a gun on him during a heated argument.


    On Sunday, Arafat and members of the Fatah Revolutionary Council decided to dismantle the Al Aqsa Brigades militia, which has carried out many shooting attacks on Israelis in the past 16 months of fighting.

    On Tuesday, Arafat met with Rajoub and confronted him with reports that the security chief had told associates he would not take actions against Fatah militiamen, said the Palestinian official. Nearly all of Rajoub's men are Fatah members, and Rajoub, while endorsing a crackdown on Islamic militants, has shied away from a confrontation with Fatah gunmen.

    Arafat and Rajoub had a heated argument, with the Palestinian leader accusing Rajoub of defying his orders, the official said. At one point, Arafat pulled his pistol, but his hand was shaking and the weapon dropped to the floor, the Palestinian official said. Rajoub got up and left.

    That's not the story I read. Apparently the only shaking was done by Arafat's aides who wrested the pistol from his grip before he could plug this guy.
