This Jew sayeth it...RIP Arafat.
Don't read what isn't there.
My Commiserations to all in the Middle East and beyond, that wished to see Peace.
An It Harm None, Do What You Will
If you cant say anything nice or respectful, then say nothing. As in any other Sympathy Thread
Edit: perhaps if I had posted "Americans are killers" like certain others, it would be ok, and not removed.
Edit2: You can say what you posted... just not in this thread... start another one

If nothing else. Yarafat held the Palestinian people together. If he said 'Stop', they stopped. Is there anyone left who can do that? Hopefully his departure will not exasperate the situation. He deserves the respect that other leaders get on their demise.
Age is getting to me. I thought patio doors was an Irish country singer.
Arafat was a "money where your mouth is" kind of guy... I can respect that. He could have made a nice living for himself in the west, but instead chose to stay in Palestine and fight for his beliefs.
Ancient Bush family proverb; Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day... drown him in the lake and he'll never be hungry again.
Any Which Way.... because there's more to it than Fox tells you.
Well saddned by his passing , he did have 20 plus? years to work on a compromise . Now thats sad !
he was one of the greatest leaders on earth, he kept the Palestinians under control (exceptions made for the 2 Intifada's, which btw i support so bite me.). Nobel Peace Prize or not, he truly did his job, even thought stubborn, he kept the peace for as long as he could. What shall happen to the children of Palestine now? May god help them.
