The guessing is over

Leukemia? AIDS? Nope. Neither. It was the Jews.

Should have guessed that.

THE militant Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades urged militants to attack Israel to avenge the “Zionist assassination” of Yasser Arafat, who died hours earlier in a Paris hospital, said a statement received by AFP today.

“Zionist Israel and the government of (Israeli Prime Minister Ariel) Sharon are responsible for the assassination of our leader by putting him under siege,” the armed offshoot of Arafat’s mainstream Fatah party said.

Hammas also chimed in with the same accusation:

“I hold Israel responsible for the crime of killing Abu Ammar,” Hamas’ top political leader, Khaled Mashaal, told Al-Jazeera television by telephone, using the late Palestinian leader’s nom de guerre. He offered no evidence.

“Yes, death is an act of God and a man the age of brother Abu Ammar may die a natural death, but all the circumstances which we have seen in the past two weeks and medical reports indicate that brother Abu Ammar had been poisoned,” Mashaal said.

  • The Hamas’ big image was that they were not pro-Fatah/PLO at all and had many differences of opinion with Arafat.
    Whatever,
    I supposed that they try their best to show a united front every once in a while, and we know the best way to do that is attack Jews.

  • Here’s a suggestion: Each time someone starts talking about how “great” Arafat was, or says he died of “unknown”/”mysterious” causes, immediately start singing and disco-dancing:

    “Y-M-C-A!”

    Or sing “MACHO, MACHO MAN”. Not that there’s anything wrong with THAT. Honestly.

  • Here is a song to mark the occasion. Sing along!

  • Seriously, I have heard comments that Arafat had AIDS. Why the hell won´t they tell the world what he died from? What is the secret? And why don´t they just say ” he died of heart failure due to parkinsons” or whatever.. They can say anything they want. Why keep the mystery??
