Arafat in Serious Condition

with 2 comments

According to Reuters, in Arafat in Serious Condition, Foreign Medics Arrive: “The ex-guerrilla, loved by most of his people and reviled by many Israelis, has had stomach pains since last week.” It should have read, “The terrorist, considered corrupt by most of his people and an enemy of Israelis, has had stomach pains since last week.” While the loss of life is always unfortunate, even when it is just, this one will be balanced by the possible mizvah of resuming a real peace process.

  1. It’s time for Israel to give back the land it stole. C’mon, 59 years is a long time. I think Europe is safe for Jews again.

  2. This is the kind of uninformed anti-semitic trash talk I cannot stand. I will not delete it, because the world must know about the uninformed. Jews have lived in the Middle East, including areas of modern Israel, Judea and Samaria, for millenia. Perhaps this author would like to explain to the Yemenite, Iraqi, Iranian, Libyan, and other Jews that they can just go home now. Jews were only recently booted out of Judea and Samaria, when Jordan conquered it after the UN partition plan fell through. This is not an issue of the Jewish many oppressing the Palestinian few. While Palestinians have a rough life, it is because of Arab action, not Israeli action. Almost 20% of Israelis are non-Jewish Arabs. These Arabs have more rights than Arabs in any other Arab nation. Palestinians in the territories were tricked by Arab nations promising to wipe out the Jews. Now that Arabs have failed in their holocaust, it is an Arab problem to care for the Palestinians in the territories. Israel has done its part to rescue Jews in hostile Arab countries. Why is it that Arab countries turn their backs on the Palestinians they made into refugees?
