The Arafat I Know
Wall St Journal ^ | 1-10-2002 | Ion Mihai Pacepa

Last week, Israel seized a boat carrying 50 tons of Iranian-made mortars, long-range missiles and anti-tank rockets destined for the Palestinian Authority. The vessel, Karim A., is owned by the Palestinian Authority and its captain and several crew are members of the Palestinian naval police. I am not surprised to see that Yasser Arafat remains the same bloody terrorist I knew so well during my years at the top of Romania's foreign intelligence service.

In Pacepa's book, published in 1987, he notes that the Romanian service had a long biography on Rahman al-Qudwa (AKA Yassir Arafat) which included his embezzlement of PLO funds, his homosexuality that began in his youth, and, especially, his fanaticism. After reading it, Pacepa noted, he felt he needed a bath.

On March 2, 1973, after President Nixon refused the terrorists' demand, the PLO commandos executed three of their hostages: American Ambassador Cleo A. Noel Jr., his deputy, George Curtis Moore, and Belgian charge d'affaires Guy Eid.

Why are we not at war with the PLO ?

But. I keep on being told that people who support this ugly bum, and his cause, are simply "American Firsters".

Please won't someone send this dog poop to allah? What is wrong with Israel? They have let him and his kind kill and cripple far too long. Put him in the ground forever.

I think we need some of those pics of Bill, Hillary, and Jesse walking arm in arm with their buds Yassar and his wife! Bill did his best to legitimize Arafat--it figures.

Thanks! Wasn't that hug given following Yassar's wife's rousing anti-Isreali speech where she supported killing of Isreali children? Help me--My memory isn't what it used to be.

"Kiss Of The Vampire"!

Methinks you slander Bela Lugosi!

Actually, both of them are kind of vampiric, aren't they?

Bela was benign in comparison. The west needs another Vlad Dracule to deal with the jihadists.

Sirhan Sirhan, the Palestinian assassin of Robert Kennedy.

Man these Palestinians sure get around don't they! Seems we have had a Palestinian Problem long before 911. Far, far too long...

It is little surprise that EU would lionize Arafat, but it is shocking that the State Department keeps dealing with this thug.
