Please look at the photo accompanying this column.
Stare at it. View it carefully. Study the image.
This is the face of Yasser Arafat's terror.

This is how he remains in power.
This is why we continue to deal with this murdering fiend after more than 30 years.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
This one may be worth many more.
The story behind this photo is simple. It's not unique. The victim is called a "collaborator" by Arafat's "police force." He was one of Arafat's terrorists who was suspected of working with Israel in some way.
The important thing to understand about this photo is that this is how Arafat rules his own people by sheer terror, by brute force, by barbaric tactics that would be unimaginable to most in the West.
Yet, we continue to deal with him. We continue to support him financially with U.S. taxpayer dollars. We continue to give him credence as an international peacemaker.
If you care to know more details, the victim was eviscerated after this picture was taken. I have photos of that, too. I will spare you the more gruesome images.
