The Absurd Times Arafat Assassinated!

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on January 19, 2013


Illustration: We have run versions of this, but it helps to keep it in mind. The 1967 map is what the UN approves, Israel doesn’t, hence it is not a state but an occupation.

Our article on the assassination of Arafat drew quite a few comments, but from those who do comment regularly and those who do not. I’m printing them here as they not only make sense but tend to make the conclusion that Israel deliberately did it all but inevitable.

[Many comments are unparsable, but these are one the mark and clear]

Well, SOMEBODY did.

The penultimate paragraph on the last issue should have read as follows, with the missing sentence added:

Well, not to get off the track, we also know that Mossad or Israel did not assassinate Arafat with Polonium because many in the government wanted to and the leader at the time said it wasn’t a good idea, then. They later changed their minds. I know this will be whined about, so I’m putting part of an article on the subject at the end of this.****

So, it appears the French must already know the cause of death from
the time of his death.
It seems it might hve been more productive to send the body somewhere
else for the autopsy. France does not seem to want to make it public.

What still surprises me after all these years is that when I tell people stories like this most of them still wrinkle their noses, and say ‘well, those Palestinians are all no good anyway, they’re all terrorists you know’.

People are generally happy being told who to hate or distrust, as long as it’s from our MSM or Hollywood. It’s a cozy feeling to be part of the big crowd of legitimized haters, appalling as it sounds. Like Jack Shaheen says in ‘Reel Bad Arabs’…

And on the other side, some American student wrote of being in Teheran near a viciously anti-American rally. He was spotted and a few people went up to him and apologized. It was cathartic in a group sense they said, but wasn’t meant to be personal,
smiles all around.

My impression of the whole Mediterranean and beyond region is that you are loved or hated, no bourgeois detachment or ‘diversity’
alienation common to industrial capitalism
