Posted on 11/12/2004 5:59:12 AM PST by Ginifer
To use a well-worn cliché, but one which clearly communicates its message, it is enough to gag a maggot.
''It'' is the adulation being heaped on one of the worlds master terrorists, the recently, and thankfully, departed Yasser Arafat, leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).
Arafat has been praised as a statesman, for his ''undisputed'' and ''extraordinary'' courage (does it take courage to send murderers to slaughter children?) and for his successful acts of terror.
The latter comment came from columnist Gwynne Dyer, who at least had the honesty (decency clearly is beneath her) to admit that Arafat was a terrorist.
If those comments are not enough to cause you to leave your lunch in the nearest wastebasket, consider what French President Jacques Chirac said in tribute to the man who raised the art of the mass butchery of the innocent in their homes and schools to new and sophisticated levels (keeping in mind that the French are among the most anti-Semitic people on earth).
Chirac called Arafat ''a man of courage and conviction who for 40 years has incarnated the Palestinians' fight for recognition of their national rights. I have come to bow before president Yasser Arafat and pay him a final homage.''
Homage to a man who delighted in sending his surrogate monsters to kill moms and dads and their children in their homes? Who ordered the machine-gunning of school buses and the bombing of restaurants and nightclubs? A violent, vicious man with no conscience, no morals and no compunctions about the killing and maiming of anyone Jewish?
Despicable, even for the French.
British Prime Minister Tony Blair surely stifled the urge to vomit when he said that Arafat ''lead his people to an historic acceptance of the need for a two-state solution.''
Of course, Blair was entirely wrong in his analysis. Arafat had no desire for a Palestinian state. His sole objective, which is the same for all Islamic terrorists and virtually all Muslims worldwide, was the complete destruction of the Jewish people.
And while he could not achieve that entirely, he was successful in doing it a few children and grandparents and mothers at a time.
One of the most obnoxious statements came from--are you surprised?--former President Jimmy Carter, who for decades has showered adulation on some of the worst dictators in the world. Carter described Arafat as ''the father of the modern Palestinian nationalist movement. A powerful human symbol and forceful advocate, Palestinians united behind him in their pursuit of a homeland.''
Yes, indeed, it takes a powerful man to blow up a baby.
The Left Coast newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, spun this lie about Arafat: ''The only leader most Palestinians have ever known, Arafat came tantalizingly close to establishing the state he dedicated his life to winning, surviving myriad brushes with death along the way: wars, plane crashes, and Israel's best efforts to put him in the grave.''
How many times must it be said? Arafats life was not dedicated to establishing a Palestinian state--he had that opportunity when President Bill Clinton brokered an agreement granting him everything he supposedly wanted. He rejected it, because his true aim--let's all say it together--was the eradication of the Jewish People.
Surely it was nothing more than a political gesture when President Bush said ''God bless his soul'' when informed of Arafats death. As a Bible-believing Christian, Mr. Bush knows that this international criminal is in the hands of a wrathful God.
When we consider the present state of Yasser Arafat, we should hearken to the words of Jesus Christ, who said: ''I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.''
Arafat will answer to the living God for his deeds on earth, and will not find a sympathetic ear. Why should he receive praise from us?
...by the old media, who are dead but just haven't been buried yet.
The is ZERO adulation by the new media
After seeing the chaos this morning as helicopters (carrying Arafat's body) landed in Ramallah, all I can hope is that that bunch of nuts stays in the middle east and away from this part of the world. If ever there was an example of evil existing in this world, it's right there with all of those crazies.
Thanks for posting. Excellent article. It never ceases to amaze me how Jimmy Carter could have been POTUS.
makes me wanna puke all over them.
Arafat has finally become a good terrorist.
The title implies that this murderer was universally admired.
To paraphrase Al...
"I don't think so, Tim."
Every honest person on the planet (even intelluctuals), will have to admit that Arafat's legacy is legendary only for it's brutality.
Every government or person that thinks Arafat's a hero is an open enemy of the US and should be trusted and dealt with accordingly.
In lieu of flowers please send 10 lbs. of Pig Sh*t to cover his carcass. May God's judgement be swift and terrible.
That is a good phrase.
Just watch all this scum in action when Bin Laden is killed.
"the Los Angeles Times, spun this lie about Arafat: ''The only leader most Palestinians have ever known, Arafat came tantalizingly close to establishing the state he dedicated his life to winning,"
Arafat could of had his state in 1998 if his true intentions were peaceful. The write of the post makes a good point and that is his intentions was to murder all of the Jews. Goodbye Arafat and good riddance. Wonder how your after-life communication with the Father Jehovah are going?
"Here is the marker for Arafart's grave. I have spared no expense."
NICE. Laugh of the day award goes to you Conspiracy Guy!
I notice how Arafat is admired by:
1) The European Union countries
2) The Middle Eastern despot/mullah countries
With such whacked out thought process, it is no wonder their is such a rift between us and them.
Forget his speeches, can we save Jimmy to that file?
I passed out cake and candy to the children and we danced and fired our weapons in the air.
I think it is altogether right and proper that he should be buried in Ramallah. He's been stuck there unable to leave (and return) for the last four years. Now he'll be stuck there forever.
Can you imagine the coffin swarm if they'd allowed him into Jerusalem?
He's in there too!
It would have been very bad.
In the end, Arafat turned out to be stupid and venal even by islamist standards. The standard strategy of the islamic supremacists is to take what you're offered, ignore your part of the bargain, and continue to try to take more. When Arafat rejected 95% of Jerusalem over the right of return he must have alienated a bunch of his people. Why wouldn't he have just taken the city and had his people come back whether the Izzies liked it or not? (Reparations, that's why. It was all about the Benjamins.)
