Strap it on, Yasser

Strap it on, Yasser
: The way I read this: Yasser Arafat both endorses suicide bombers (or as al-Jazeera and I prefer to call them, human bombs) and supervises them.

He issues a statement telling them to try not to kill women and children.

Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has urged would-be suicide bombers not to kill Israeli civilians, saying it was “inadmissible to kill a child or a woman in a restaurant”, an Arabic newspaper reported on Sunday….

In what he described as a message to “young people ready to blow themselves up”, Arafat was quoted as repeating his longheld stand that “we oppose violence against Palestinian and Israeli civilians”.

He then specified what he meant by civilians.

“The struggle against occupation is legitimate and I mean ‘soldiers of the occupation’. It is inadmissible to kill a child or a woman in a restaurant or a cafe,” he added.

Show us how it’s done, Yasser: Blow yourself up.

    Arafat has great love for children.
    Ion Mihai Pacepa, former head of Romanian intelligence, recalls that his own dossier on Arafat provided:
    …an incredible account of fanaticism … of tangled oriental political maneuvers, of lies, of embezzled PLO funds deposited in Swiss banks, and of homosexual relationships, beginning with his teacher when he was a teenager and ending with his current bodyguards. After reading that report, I felt a compulsion to take a shower whenever [I] had just shaken his hand.
    the Romanian intelligence services had taped [his] sex sessions with men and boys
    Read it for yourself.
