All I Know Is I Didn’t Kill Yasser Arafat

I would have given it serious consideration, had I had the opportunity, but I was never so lucky.

Where were the rest of youse on the night?

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has accused one of his main rivals, Mohammed Dahlan, of involvement in six murders, hinting that he might also be behind the death of former leader Yasser Arafat.

Dahlan, who lives in exile in the Gulf, denied the allegations of his arch foe Abbas, their bitter row now playing out publicly across the Palestinian media and on social media.

Once a prominent official in Abbas’s Western-backed Fatah movement, Dahlan was ousted from the group in 2011 following accusations of corruption. He denied the charges and remains a powerful figure on the sidelines, forging ties with numerous Arab leaders and maintaining links with the splintered Fatah.

Abbas said an investigation was carried out into Dahlan, for years Fatah’s strongman in the Gaza Strip, during the rule of former president Arafat. “It was found out that six people were killed by orders from Dahlan,” the president said.

Abbas said he did not have any proof that Dahlan was involved, but he read out several statements in which his 52-year-old rival had allegedly criticized Arafat.

“Who killed Yasser Arafat? This is not evidence, but indications that deserve consideration,” said Abbas, who has faced criticism from many Palestinians for pursuing apparently gridlocked peace negotiations with Israel.

An angry Dahlan hit back on his Facebook page, saying Abbas’s speech was full of “lies … stupidity and ignorance of the Palestinian reality.” He added that he would also “unveil the lies” surrounding the death of Arafat, calling it “the most important and most dangerous issue of our modern history.”

I’d say it was the best day of your modern history (if you had a history), or it could have been if, as the saying goes, you had stopped hating Jews more than you love your children. But then another saying has it that the Arabs never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. The day Arafat turned room temperature should have been declared a national holiday (if you had a nation).

Speaking of Genocidal Monsters

As we were, below.

I forgot one!

A team of Russian forensic experts have said that former Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Yasser Arafat died of “natural causes”, and ruled out radiation poisoning as a cause of death, according to Lebanon’s Daily Star.

“We have completed all the studies. The person died a natural death and not from radiation,” announced the head of Russia’s Federal Medical-Biological Agency (FMBA) Vladimir Uiba, according to Russia state media.

The announcement echoes previous findings by a group of French experts, who also ruled out foul play as contributing towards Arafat’s death.

Both findings contradict a report by a team of Swiss scientists, who claimed that it was likely Arafat was killed by polonium poisoning, though they clarified that the test results neither confirmed nor denied polonium was the actual cause of his death.

Those findings have been viewed with skepticism in some parts however, due to revelations that Arafat’s former wife was funding the investigation, along with the Palestinian Authority itself. Other experts have poured doubt on the findings themselves, saying that if polonium had been used to kill Arafat it would have decomposed long ago.

Arafat’s ex-wife Suha Arafat had refused to accept the French findings, and a recent poll suggested widespread support for conspiracy theories surrounding the former PA leader’s death among Palestinian Arabs, and blame Israel for his death.

Yasser Arafat died in France on November 11, 2004 at the age of 75, but doctors were unable to conclusively determine the cause of death. At the time, his widow Suha Arafat refused to allow an autopsy.

Interesting that the Russkies don’t specify which natural cause killed Arafat. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is more popularly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. I think we should call Arafat’s fatal malady Rock Hudson’s Disease. It would explain why his old lady wouldn’t allow the doctors to cut open his rancid carcass.

Yasser Arafat Is as Big a Pain in the Ass Dead as He Was Alive

In the future, everyone’s death will be famous for fifteen minutes:

French forensic tests have concluded that former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat did not die of poisoning, as had been suggested by an earlier report, a source who saw the conclusions of the report said on Tuesday.

“The results of the analyses allow us to conclude that the death was not the result of poisoning,” the source told Reuters, quoting from conclusions of a report by French forensic experts handed over to Arafat’s widow Suha.

Must have been someone he ate.

A radiation scientist who examined the Swiss and the French reports for Suha Arafat said both studies had found similar levels of Polonium 210 in Arafat’s body but differed in their explanations of how it got there.

The scientist, who declined to be named, said the French report concluded that some of the radioactivity could be explained by the presence of radon gas in the tomb where Arafat was buried.

Arafat’s widow has also said that a member of Arafat’s own inner circle was responsible, stoking tensions among senior officials.

“I promise that the next press conference will be the last, and will cast into the light of day everyone who perpetrated, took part in or conspired in the matter,” Tirawi told Palestine Today television.

“We are in the last 15 minutes of the investigation,” he added.

Just tell me they reinterred his underwear after they tested it. I hate to think of that nasty thing still out there. It’ll be on eBay before you know it.

We Have a Winner! [UPDATED] [UPPERDATED]

In this story, everyone’s a winner!

Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was poisoned to death in 2004 with radioactive polonium, his widow Suha said on Wednesday after receiving the results of Swiss forensic tests on her husband’s corpse.

“We are revealing a real crime, a political assassination,” she told Reuters in Paris.

A team of experts, including from Lausanne University Hospital’s Institute of Radiation Physics, opened Arafat’s grave in the West Bank city of Ramallah last November, and took samples from his body to seek evidence of alleged poisoning.

“This has confirmed all our doubts,” said Suha Arafat after the Swiss forensic team handed over its report to her lawyers and Palestinian officials in Geneva on Tuesday. “It is scientifically proved that he didn’t die a natural death and we have scientific proof that this man was killed.”

“I’m so angry at what happened and I feel that I’m mourning him all over again. This was an act by cowards.”

Give it up, Suha. You were the biggest winner of all. (Here’s where the old BTL would make a crack about her size. But such gratuitous, sexist, size-ist remarks are a thing of BTL’s past. No more personal slights, ad hominem attacks, no sir. Have another pint of Ben & Jerry’s Cheesecake Brownie with our compliments, Widow A., and don’t forget to lick the spoon!)

You’ve were living the high life in Malta while your old man was on the down-low in Ramallah. And everyone was happy. Come to think of it, among the legions who had motive to waste the dead frog, your name would be at or near the top.

Hope that doesn’t ruin your your day… or your appetite. (BTL!)

UPDATE
Now, now, Suha. The cockney rhyming slang for lies is “pork pies” or “porkies”. Fitting:

“The results moderately support the proposition that the death was the consequence of poisoning with polonium 210.”

Such a moderate word, moderately. It isn’t strongly, and certainly not conclusively.

Locked-room mysteries are supposed to end with satisfying clarity — an inescapable conclusion put forward by a scrupulously objective investigator to an assembled audience. Arafat’s death was a locked-room mystery three times over: the contaminated personal effects, according to his wife, “had been stored for eight years in a secured room at the fourth floor of her attorney’s office in Paris,” the forensic report says. His body — its skeleton diagramed in the forensic report — was entombed in a glossy mausoleum guarded by Palestinian sentries in downtown Ramallah since its 2004 interment.

And of course Arafat took ill in a locked room — barricaded in the Ramallah office where he’d spent two years during the second intifadeh.

[S]uspicion also clings to Arafat’s inner circle. It’s a logical suspicion given the crucial question of access to his food — and the Swiss study assumes the polonium was ingested (which the report says might explain why, while he displayed other symptoms consistent with radiation poisoning, his hair did not fall out). Some analysts say the “insider” scenario is supported by the dire political situation at the time — the Palestinian cause was being held hostage with Arafat unbending at its helm, leading his people — many believed — nowhere.

On Tuesday, the abiding intrigue was heightened not only by the Swiss scientists’ report, but also by the way it came to light. Instead of being released by the Palestinian Authority, which had allowed the exhumation of Arafat’s remains, it came out on al-Jazeera, where his widow declared: “This is the crime of the century.” It made headlines on independent Palestinian outlets like Ma’an. But the 9 p.m. newscast of Palestine TV carried not a word. Conspiracy theorists were left to their own devices on the reason why.

Hey, he’s dead. Why look a gift frog in the mouth?

UPPERDATE

An Israeli expert on radiation believes reports that former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was poisoned to death are “completely fabricated.” Dr. Ehud Ne’eman told Ynet that there would be no traces of Polonium 210 if the poison was injected before 2004.

Food for thought, eh Suha?

Say Ahhh

Ante up, Bloodthirstani, choose sides! Which will we learn first? How high in double figures is the EdselCare enrollment… or (wait for it)… the cause of death of Yasser Arafat.

I’m taking Arafat, and I’ll even predict the cause of death: a particularly buff young Bedouin named Mustafa.

Palestinian Authority officials have received the reports of Swiss and Russian forensic investigations into the 2004 death of former PA Chairman Yasser Arafat, an official told the AFP news agency Tuesday.

He would not, however, disclose the findings.

“The report was delivered” by the Swiss laboratory, Tawfiq Tirawi, who heads the PA investigation into Arafat’s death, told AFP.

Official PA news agency WAFA said that a Russian team appointed by the Palestinian Authority also handed in its report on November 2 and that its conclusions would be made public in due course.

Some 60 samples were taken from Arafat’s remains in November last year for a probe into whether he was poisoned by polonium.

YECH!!!

We shall not look upon his kind again. There are a few close facsimiles, however:

Oops! Already dead!

Darn it! Another roadkill casualty!

Anyhow, I’ve got $50 (Bloodthirstani dollars, mind you) on the petri dishes with Arafat’s remains giving up their secrets before the Obama regime gives up its secrets. Who wants a piece of the action?

Polonium Balonium

Waiting for the announcement? On pins and needles? Tenterhooks?

At last!

No, not a budget deal, silly. Who gives a [bleep] about that? Yasser Arafat had traces of polonium on his underwear and tooth brush. (Don’t ask who those two objects are connected. I don’t want to think about it.)

Former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat may have been poisoned to death with radioactive polonium, scientists in Switzerland have revealed.

Arafat died in France on November 11, 2004, at the age of 75, but at the time doctors were unable to specify the cause of death.

Experts revealed that several belongings and items of clothing belonging to Arafat, including his toothbrush, hat and underwear, contained high ‘unexplained levels’ of the radioactive material.

The material is the same as that used to murder former Russian spy Alexander Litvenenko in London in 2006.

Arafat, who died after falling ill at his headquarters in the West Bank, showed symptoms of nausea, stomach pain and kidney and liver failure – signs consistent with radiation poisoning.

But the lack of hair loss or a shortage of bone marrow casts doubt on that theory, the scientists admit.

Much rumour had surrounded Arafat’s death after doctors couldn’t identify how he died.

Suggestions ranged from the aspersion that he had died from HIV to claims that rivals had poisoned him.

What aspersion? Many people have died from HIV. Some truly wonderful, noteworthy, remarkable people who are dearly missed.

And some not.

If Yasser Arafat was a homosexual (I said “if”), he would not be the first to have had a “beard”, a female companion to put off any close-minded, mean-spirited speculation. I just hope he found happiness in the arms of a loving man. Or two. Or six.

A statement said: ‘Several tests on samples of bodily fluids contained an unexplained higher level of polonium 210, compared to control samples.

Ewww… I did not need that image.

Yasser Arafat is Still Dead

We’re used to being outliers here in Bloodthirstan—how could we not be? But is there no one else who had September 30th circled on their calendar?


Under the weather, under the ground

Swiss, French and Russian experts have missed their deadline for delivering the results of tests conducted on the remains of Yasser Arafat to determine the causes of his death, the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper reported Tuesday.

The newspaper said that the Lausanne Medical Center in Geneva had promised to hand over the results of the tests to the Palestinian Authority by mid-September, but as yet has not done so.

Informed Palestinian sources told the newspaper that there was fear among the Palestinians that the delay was the result of an “official decision” to procrastinate. Forensic investigators from the three countries took samples from Arafat’s body last November for tests to determine whether he had been poisoned by polonium – a toxic, radioactive element found on some of his personal belongings.

Polonium: is that a euphemism for bathhouses?

The officials said that the delay may be designed to prevent the emergence of any issues that could have a negative impact on the peace talks.

The officials also expressed fear that some Western intelligence agencies had intervened to block the delivery of the test results “in light of ongoing Palestinian allegations that Israel was behind Arafat’s death.”

Tawkif Tirawi, head of the Palestinian inquiry commission into Arafat’s death, refused to comment on the report about the delay. He only said that his commission was in contact with the forensic experts who took Arafat’s samples. Tirawi added that there were no hurdles hindering the publication of the test results.

You say polonium, I say Moustafa—a cause of death that dare not speak its name.

Speaking Ill of the Dead

Not me.

Him:

Dozens of angry Fatah activists demonstrated outside the Ramallah offices of the Al Jazeera news network Wednesday.

The protesters had to be physically prevented from storming the building by Palestinian Authority (PA) police, and were forced to make do with hurling epithets including allegations that the Qatari-based network was pursuing a “Zionist” agenda.

The activists were incensed by remarks made by a certain Ibrahim Hamami during a heated debate broadcast by the network, in which he branded former Palestinian Authority leader Yasser Arafat a “traitor,” due to having signed the Oslo Agreements in 1994, and thus implicitly agreed to a compromise with Israel.

Hamami is a London-based Islamist, and supporter of Hamas – the Islamist movement which has been at loggerheads with Fatah since taking over the Gaza Strip in 2006, ousting the Fatah-run administration.

Arafat died in 2004 after struggling with an unknown illness.

Oh yeah… what’s up with that anyway?

Test results of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s corpse would be handed to the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) in the middle of September, a PNA official said Tuesday.

A Swiss lab that examined samples from Arafat’s remains would complete the results around the middle of September, said Tawfiq Al-Tirawi, head of the Palestinian committee that follows the investigation into Arafat’s death in 2004.

“So far, the Swiss lab did not give us any initial indications or results on the deaths of Arafat’s death,” Al-Tirawi told Xinhua. However, he added that there were no obstacles preventing the results from being handed down and declared next month.

Maybe Hamami said “poofter”, not “traitor”. Him, not me! What do I care if Arafat sought love in the… arms of virile young men? If Suha wasn’t getting it done, maybe Suleiman was.

Anyway, we’ll know soon enough.

Gaza Youth Say the Darnedest Things

November 11…Armistice Day?

Following are excerpts from a statement by the the Tamarrud Movement against Oppression in Gaza, which was posted on August 20, 2013.

Speaker: On the shining day [of November 11], we will shake off the tyranny and oppression of the Muslim Brotherhood [i.e., Hamas] in Gaza. They are no brothers of ours.

They have deceived us in the name of religion and “resistance.” They have labeled themselves as believers and us as infidels. Allah alone has the authority to deem someone an infidel or a traitor, but they do not understand this.

[…]

Our people has never known bloodshed for the sake of bloodshed alone, except at the hands of the gang of Hamas. Our people have never suffered daily humiliation, torture, trumped-up charges, denial of people’s rights, and the triumph of the oppressor over the oppressed except at the hands of the gang of Hamas in Gaza.

The time has come to refuse to die oppressed under the rod of the security [agencies] of Hamas.

The Tamarrud Movement against Oppression in Gaza is a Palestinian youth movement, which encompasses all [political] hues and orientations.

Is anyone safe from the autocratic rule of Hamas in Gaza? Our people, of all national inclinations and ideologies – even the Islamic ones – have been targets for the crimes of this heretic gang, which carried out killings, torture, and sabotage, and acted like thugs, taking bribes and smuggling, just like a gang from the Middle Ages.

What is so shameful and disgraceful is that they are doing all this in the name of Islam, the homeland, and resistance.

[…]

The only thing we desire is to shake off the yoke of oppression, and to seal the abyss [in Palestinian society], dug by the Hamas gang – those traffickers in tunnels and hypocrisy.

Hey, these kids sound all right. At least as far as the “Hamass gang” is concerned. Do you suppose…?

We want to restore the national standing of Gaza, so that it can regain its role in the war for freedom and independence from the Zionist occupation. For the sake of the future of our homeland and the coming generations, we must all make November 11 a purely Palestinian national day, without any foreign interference.

Oh damn! Silly me.

Not that I knew this myself, but November 11 is evidently the anniversary of Arafat’s death. I don’t know if they are marking his death or celebrating it.

Hey, speaking of…

Test results of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s corpse would be handed to the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) in the middle of September, a PNA official said Tuesday.

A Swiss lab that examined samples from Arafat’s remains would complete the results around the middle of September, said Tawfiq Al-Tirawi, head of the Palestinian committee that follows the investigation into Arafat’s death in 2004.

Can these guys keep a secret or what? Why has it taken so long? If there was enough poison to kill the old goat, why can’t they find it?

Can’t Wait!

Forget “Who Killed J.R.?” I wanna know “Who Killed Y.A.?”

Suha Arafat stands on the verge of discovering whether her late husband, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, was assassinated. Since the day he died in a Parisian military hospital in 2004, rumours have swirled about what may have killed him – a heart attack; food poisoning; polonium; Aids.

Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but my money’s not on heart attack or food poisoning, if you receive my meaning.

Arafat, then 75, was struck down by a mysterious illness inside his besieged presidential compound in Ramallah. He was airlifted to France but could not be saved. After he died, much to the frustration of his personal doctor, no autopsy was requested (under French law only Suha could give permission). French doctors concluded he was killed by a stroke, although the official cause of death was unresolved.

The results of tests on his body, which was finally exhumed at Suha’s request last year, are due to be released soon. And what they reveal could have a profound effect on her – and on the fragile Middle East peace process.

At last, the whole world will know who or what killed Yasser Arafat!

Oh, come on! Don’t you want to know?

Fine, don’t listen then:

Suha eventually agreed to have Arafat’s body tested after being approached by Al Jazeera. “I gave them a holdall of Yasser’s with some of his belongings from the hospital,” she says.

The items, including a toothbrush and some underwear, were sent to a laboratory in Lausanne. The tests found higher than normal levels of polonium, the radioactive substance used to kill former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko, but though they suggested foul play, they were not conclusive.

“To prove poisoning they needed to carry out more tests. I thought we must find out the truth,” she says. Last November, the body was exhumed.

What do you think Arafat’s toothbrush (unused probably) and underwear (well-used probably) would fetch on eBay? I would pay just not to see them listed.

Anyway:

The head of the Palestinian commission on the investigation, Tawfiq Tirawi, realises this theory raises an uncomfortable question. “If someone put polonium or any sort of poison in his food, it must have been a Palestinian. Maybe – maybe – there was inside collaboration.”

Suha says she has no preconceptions about her husband’s death. “We don’t even know if a crime was committed so how can I make accusations? We have to wait for the results — and if they are positive, then it’s up to the criminal investigation and the courts. If a crime has been committed it’s important that it’s documented – either way, the truth should be told,” she says.

“Of course I’m nervous about the results, they’re very significant.

I wouldn’t worry, Suha. You and the old man hadn’t exactly been intimate for a while, had you? You can’t get… polonium poisoning… from a toilet seat.

Now do you care, gentle reader?

There’s no pleasing some people.

PS: Who knows when “soon” is. This story was published 11 days ago. Don’t hold your breath—unless in the presence of Arafat’s underwear.

Yasser Arafat is Still Dead

That’s the good news.

Sorry to have missed this a few weeks ago, but we’ll have to wait a little longer for the results of the Arafat inquest:

The Swiss lab conducting the tests to determine whether late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat died of polonium poisoning announced on Wednesday that the results will take longer to establish than originally projected.

After Arafat’s body was exhumed in November, Prof. Patrice Mangin, who is in charge of the tests, said that results would be available in three to four months.

Oh geez. Seriously? How hard can this be? He’s been a-mouldering in the grave for more than eight years, so it’s not like there’s been any change in his condition. Just wave a Geiger counter over his remains. If it picks up radiation, you’ll know he was poisoned. If it picks up Johnny Mathis tunes, you’ll know it was something else:

A leading French doctor who teaches at the Percy hospital where Arafat died told The Times of Israel in November that, based on Arafat’s medical report, there is “absolutely no way” the Palestinian leader was poisoned.

Dr. Roland Masse, a member of the prestigious Académie de Médecine, said the symptoms of polonium poisoning would have been “impossible to miss,” noting that Percy had tested Arafat for radiation poisoning, and revealed that the hospital specializes in the related field of radiation detection. “A lethal level of polonium simply cannot go unnoticed,” he said.

Arafat’s death has remained a mystery for many. While the immediate cause of death was a stroke, the underlying source of an illness he suffered in his final weeks has never been clear, leading to persistent conspiracy theories that he had cancer, AIDS or was poisoned.

Lord knows he wasn’t into Suha. They had the requisite progeny, and then he was back in the corral among all the fine young stallions he preferred. Good for him. If you’re going to Hell (not for being a homosexual, but for any number of real and unpardonable sins), you might as well enjoy the trip.

Why is This Man Smiling?

Because he’s got a puppet on a string!

HANNITY: As we told you earlier, our commander-in-chief, what he did today standing under a banner showing Yasser Arafat, Yasser Arafat known terrorist.

Joining me now with reaction is former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Eighteen years ago, you had a little experience with Yasser Arafat.

RUDY GIULIANI, FORMER NEW YORK CITY MAYOR: Eighteen years ago I threw Yasser Arafat out of the U.N. — concert at Beethoven’s Symphony Avery Fisher Hall. He was specifically not invited, we didn’t want to invite dictators, terrorists and murderers to this concert, so he wasn’t invited. He had a ticket from somebody and I had my chief of staff and the police throw him out and I was on the front page if all the newspaper the next day. And “The New York Times” bitterly castigated me for treating him with such disrespect.

My response was, when I was a U.S. attorney, I investigated him specifically for the murder of Leon Klinghoffer on Achille Lauro.

HANNITY: Yes.

GIULIANI: He ordered that murder of Jewish man who was in a wheelchair who was thrown into the Mediterranean. I’m sorry. That was only one of 26 Americans that he murdered. I’m not telling you this from the top of my head. I spent two-three years investigating him as a U.S. attorney. Had papers issued so that he came to the United States we could pick him up. I kept him out of the United States for a long time during the Reagan administration.

HANNITY: You know, Billy Cunningham used the term, gave birth to Bin Laden.

GIULIANI: The man was a total phony and one of the biggest mistakes we made, this goes back starting a little bit with the end of the Bush administration, completely in the Clinton administration, they bought into the phoniness of Yasser Arafat. The man was not a guy who was a terrorist who turned around. He was a terrorist who turned into a big thief. His wife is sitting in the South of France with hundreds of millions of dollars. That’s the hundreds of millions –

HANNITY: Through Arafat, by the way Hillary Clinton kissed –

GIULIANI: Major thief.

HANNITY: Yes.

GIULIANI: He was a major thief.

HANNITY: Right.

In other words, move along, Rudy.

GIULIANI: And to me, when the President of the United States stands there with this guy’s picture in back of him, it says to me, does this man have any sense of history? Does he know what the heck he’s dealing with? This is a man who’s murdered at least 27 Americans, those are the tip of the iceberg, that’s I can count. He is one of the people who invented modern Islamic extremist terrorism. And he stole hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars from his own people while he watched them starve and blame it on Israel.

HANNITY: I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when I think of the same administration, going into a Catholic University demanding they wanted a neutral zone, demanding the cross, look at the picture of the cross being covered when he spoke there.

GIULIANI: So Jesus is an embarrassment and Arafat isn’t? I’m having a really hard time with that.

BOOM!

That’s going to leave a mark.

Last lick:

[I]t shows his complete ignorance of what’s going on on the ground there in Egypt, in Egypt, in Palestine, in Israel. It also shows that he has this moral equivalence between Israel and the Palestinian authority. Doesn’t he know that the Palestinian authority is a country, or wants to be a country in which there have been tremendous amount of corruption, tremendous amount of terrorism.

Israel could give a thousand concessions, it’s not going to help with the Palestinian authority. The problem has been with the Palestinian authority all along.

Way back in 2008, Giuliani was an early favorite of mine for president. Way back even before that, he was going to be the first Republican candidate I ever voted for. (I moved out of New York City before the mayoral election.) There’s a dichotomy about Giuliani: the moral authority he can display, as he does above and as he did after 9/11, and the utter mess he makes of things, such as his presidential campaign, his first marriage, his last years as mayor before 9/11 reburnished his image.

Can you imagine how he’d eviscerate Obama in a debate?

PS: Rush has been touting the Limbaugh Theory—more of an observation, really—that Obama is personally relatively popular while his policies float in the toilet of public opinion. Nowhere is that more evident than with regard to Israel. Israel routs the so-called Palestinians in American esteem, and President Jug-Ears gets his “pitcher” taken below Arafat’s hideous grimace. Nice going, Mr. President!
