Commentary :: Protest, Resistance and Direct Action
Yasser Arafat Current rating: -1
23 Nov 2004
Yasser Arafat will go down in history as the George Washington of Palestinian Republic. His courage and devotion to the cause of the Palestian people, in their unending battle for liberation and the establishment of their own national homeland, was widely respected and admired by millions of people the world over.
The slanderous "Terrorist Label" which was heaped upon this great
leader by the likes of Ariel Sharon and George W. Bush, shall be
ignored for what it was, basically lies from two of the worlds
biggest war criminals.

In his speech to the United Nations in 1974, Arafat answered this
charge eloquently:

"The difference between the revolutionary and the terrorist lies in
the reason for which he fights. For whoever stands by a just cause
and fights for freedom and liberation of his land from the invaders,
the settlers and the colonialists, cannot possibly be called
terrorists... As to those who fight against just causes, those who
wage war to occupy, colonise and oppress other people, those are the
terrorists. Those are the people whose actions should be condemned,
who should be called war criminals; for the justice of the cause
determines the right to struggle."


Note:

Yasser Arafat will always be remembered for his wearing of the Palestinian Kofiya, the symbol of Palestinian Resistance. Iy you would like to obtain an Kofiya or other great products made in Occupied Palestine, here are two wonderful links.

You will be displaying your comradeship with the Palestinian people, as you wear your very own Kofiya, plus you will be delivering a strong message that you support the liberation of the Palestinian people!

Your purchase will be helping the Palestinian's in their time of great need.

Finishing What Hitler Started Current rating: by Mark Williams

Is there anything holy to our contemptible media? They are celebrating a monster
that did more to advance toward the Final Solution than anybody since
Schickelgrueber – Arafat was the bin Laden of his day and now he is dead. Good, I am
glad. I hope it was painful. The appropriate headstone over the stiff would be a
working urinal. The media in this county have gone nuts. I actually heard one TV anchorette—with
nice teeth but no brains or sense of history past her first Barbie Doll—refer to
Yasser Arafat as “the George Washington of Palestine.”

Get this straight: Yasser Arafat was a blood-soaked, sub-human, vile, reprehensible,
murderous animal. Its (his) savagery was unmatched in the latter half of the 20th
Century and the fires of Hell are burning that much more brightly for his having
been spawned.

This sociopathic reptile’s terrorist history dates to his founding of Fatah –
designed to liberate Israel from the Jews, by way of extermination, in the 1950s.
By 1969 he was big dog on the Middle Eastern block, head of a conglomeration of
Islamic terrorist organizations unified under a single committee on which each is
represented.

The Executive Committee of the PLO becomes the Arab equivalent of the Mob commission
founded by Joseph “Joe Bananas” Bonnano, Lucky Luciano, Tommy Lucchese, Frank
Costello, and Vito Genovese. Joe was a humanitarian compared to Arafat, the five
families were only killing each other at the time, united to stop that and direct
their efforts toward the business at hand. In Arafat’s case, the goal of
unification was to improve and coordinate a more effective offensive against
innocents.

And what a record Arafat accumulated!

February 21, 1970. Swissair flight 330 blown out of the sky inbound to Tel Aviv.
All passengers and crew lost.

May 8, 1970. Nine school kids and three of their teachers blown to bits when Arafat
orders their school bus obliterated by bazooka fire

September 5, 1972. Also under Arafat’s direct command, terrorists murder 11 Israeli
athletes at the Munich Olympics (FYI; Mahmood Abbas, who tops a short list of
successors to Arafat today was the creep who worked out the logistics for that
slaughter)

March 1, 1973. The US Ambassador to the Sudan is among those killed when Arafat’s
animals take over the Saudi embassy in Khartoum.

May 15 1974. This is one of Arafat’s best pieces of work. Under orders from the
soon-to-be Nobel Peace Prize winner, a group of PLO tosses grenades into a group of
schoolchildren being held hostage and try to mow down the survivors with machine
guns. Twenty-one children and two adults killed in the school. A child, home from
school sick, is murdered – along with both parents – when Arafat’s guys make a quick
stop by the house to see if they missed anybody.

October 7, 1985. An oldie but goodie. American Leon Klinghoffer is shot in his
wheelchair, which is then rolled off of the Achille Lauro’s deck and to a watery
grave in the Mediterranean.

January 17, 2002. Sixx killed, 35 wounded when Arafat’s “freedom fighters”
machinegun a bat mitzvah. Two dead, 40 injured five days later when commuters are
machine-gunned by Arafat’s animals at a bus stop. A week later they burst into a
private home to murder an 11-year-old and her mother

May 27, 2002. The “George Washington of Palestine” orders an infant and her
grandmother blown to pieces at an ice cream parlor. The next day they mow down a
group of kids playing basketball. Three dead; ages 17, 17 and 14. The next month’s
high point for Yasser comes with three more dead kids: 16, 12 and 5 in a home
invasion, along with their mother and a neighbor who tried to help the other
victims.

May 2004. Arafat dispatches four more kids: 11, 9, 7, 2, and mom when he RPGs their
car.

Those are just a few highlights – a partial list, abbreviated because to publish a
complete list of the accomplishments of the founding father of terrorism would take
up this entire publication. There are literally hundreds of attacks on innocents,
hundreds more on mostly off-duty IDF and ordinary street cops walking their beats.
The death toll in the thousands. But you won’t hear this from the American media
whose motto is: “Warm up the box cars, we found a nest of ‘em!”

Folks, this emperor is as naked as they come:

• Item: There is not, never has been, never will be a nation called “Palestine.” It
is a myth. Atlantis has more validity. “Palestine” exists only as a vehicle for the
extermination of an entire people and a major goal of Islamic Jihad in its war
against civilization.

• Item: If there is a crueler pile of camel manure than Palestine, then it has got
to be the total fiction of a Palestinian “people” as a group distinct from Jews,
Arabs or the other peoples indigenous to the area. They have “homelands.” What they
do not have is a Jew-less Israel. This nonsense about a homeland is just that –
nonsense. But dangerous nonsense. These freaks of some twisted politically correct
nightmare are furiously scratching matches over a gas jet trying to relight
Auschwitz.

Is there anything holy to our contemptible media? They are celebrating a monster
that did more to advance toward the Final Solution than anybody since
Schickelgrueber – Arafat was the bin Laden of his day and now he is dead. Good, I am
glad. I hope it was painful. The appropriate headstone over the stiff would be a
working urinal.

um, i can't agree with either nutty opinion expressed here. certainly the world is a better place with out Arafat, but being a jew, excepting what the torah has given the jewish people for thousands of years I won't express any joy in the death of a human being. I challenge anyone that does. What has been posted here are two examples of extremism that do nothing to make the world a better place. Arafat was a terrorist by all definitions of the word, and certainly not a revolutionary. I refuse to believe he cared about the Palestenian people because if he did he wouldn't have stolen millions upon millions of dollars that was supposed to go to building public infurstructure and aiding the Palestenian people (for starters). But celebrating his death or denying the existance of Palestine is absurd. Palestine exists, the people there deserve their freedom and liberty, the same way the people of Israel deserve theirs. Hopefully new and better leadership in Palestine will further the peace process and we can look forward to some sane stability in that part of the mid-east.
