Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
is the 14th Dalai Lama. He is the head of the Tibetan government-in-exile based in Dharamshala, India. Tibetans traditionally believe him to be the reincarnation of his predecessors.
The Dalai Lama is a spiritual leader revered among Tibetans. The most influential figure of the Gelugpa or Yellow Hat Sect, he has considerable influence over the other sects of Tibetan Buddhism.  The Chinese government, whose occupation of Tibet in 1959 forced him into exile, regards him as the symbol of an outmoded theocratic system.
Tenzin Gyatso was born fifth of 16 children to a farming family in the village of Taktser. Qinghai province, China His first language was the regional Amdo dialect. 
He was proclaimed the tulku or rebirth of the thirteenth Dalai Lama at the age of two. At the age of fifteen, on 17 November 1950, one month after the Chinese army's invasion of Tibet,[neutrality disputed] he was formally enthroned as Dalai Lama. He thus became the country's most important spiritual leader and political ruler.
In 1959 the Dalai Lama fled through the mountains to India following a failed uprising and the effective collapse of the Tibetan resistance movement. He had at first, in 1951, ratified under military pressure a Seventeen Point Agreement to coexist alongside China. In India he set up a Tibetan government-in-exile. Among the 80,000 or so exiles that followed him Tenzin Gyatso strives to preserve traditional Tibetan education and culture. 
A noted public speaker worldwide,Tenzin Gyatso is often described as charismatic.  He is the first Dalai Lama to travel to the West, where he seeks to spread Buddhist teachings and to promote ethics and interfaith harmony. He was awarded honorary Canadian citizenship in 2006, and the United States Congressional Gold Medal on 17 October 2007. He was awarded the nobel peace prize in 1989
Yasser Arafat (ياسر عرفات), born on 24 August 1929 in the city of Cairo and died on 11 November 2004 in Clamart in France, whose real name was Mohammed Abdel Raouf Arafat al-Qudwa al-Husseini (محمد عبد الرؤوف القدوة الحسيني) and also known under its kounya Abu Ammar (ابو عمار), was an activist and prominent Palestinian state.
Fatah leader and also the Organization for the Liberation of Palestine, long considered a terrorist by Israel in particular because of its involvement in many operations that have killed civilians and Israeli soldiers, Yasser Arafat remained for several decades a controversial figure of speech by the violence of Palestinian national aspirations to appear for Israel as a partner in discussions in the process of Israeli-Palestinian peace in the 1990s.
Yasser Arafat represents the Palestinian people in various peace negotiations and sign the Oslo accords in 1993. He became the first president of the new Palestinian Authority and received the nobel peace prize in 1994 along with Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin.
Beginning in 2001, after the failure of the Taba summit and the outbreak of the Second Intifada, it gradually loses its credit with a portion of his people he accuses of corruption authority. He finds himself isolated on the international scene while the Israelis elect Ariel Sharon as Prime Minister of the State of Israel, prompting a tightening of the Israeli position vis-à-vis the Palestinian leader no longer forced to leave Ramallah. This isolation is broken on the eve of his death, when he was rushed to Clamart near Paris where he died in 2004.
