[url]http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=JPost/A/JPArticle/ShowFull&cid=1033131982596[/url] Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat vowed yesterday to continue his struggle for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. The remarks made by telephone from his besieged and largely destroyed Ramallah compound were transmitted to thousands of Palestinians at a Gaza rally marking the second year of the Palestinian uprising. He also addressed demonstrators in the West Bank town of Kalkilya. In the Gaza Strip, over 10,000 took to the streets, Palestinian sources estimated. The demonstrators included women, children, students, and Fatah, PLO, and Hamas activists. "We, the Palestinian people, care not about the siege, because we are the stronger people!" Arafat shouted. "The people are with you, Abu Amar!" the crowd chanted back, using the 73-year-old leader's nom de guerre. "We reiterate on this anniversary that we are marching until victory and until the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital," Arafat told the crowds. Arafat said the struggle will continue until "a child of our children... will raise the flag of Palestine over the walls of Jerusalem and the minarets of Jerusalem and the churches of Jerusalem. Noble Jerusalem will remain the capital of the Palestinian state whether anybody wants it or not," he said. "We are not only defending our holy places, Christian and Islamic, but every inch of our holy land," Arafat continued.

Great little picture 9er. Says a lot. Israel should have killed arafatso after the Lod Airport bombing back in 73 I think it was. Why are they letting him live?

[img]http://home.nyc.rr.com/pinchas/images/pol/Israel/IDF/IDFvsPLObabywar.gif[/img] They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this is one of those instances that prove it. In the past, I've been (really) critical of Israel, accusing them of being as bad as the Palestinians (but by no means claiming the palestinians are the good guys.) I've been reassessing that opinion over the last few months (Hun, if you're reading this, our, uh, "conversations" were a big part of it) and pretty much just had a lightbulb go off on seeing that picture. The statement made there is an absolute truism, and I can't ignore it. Here's a public apology to all the Israeli soldiers I've slandered in the past. While I would still like to see peace obtained through a means other than unrestricted warfare, all I can say is: "Do what you have to do guys. I understand now, and I'm sorry."

Too bad Israel just can't kick every Arab out of the nation that never existed - Palestine and keep moving towards east. It'd also be nice to see Saddam send some scuds towards Israel so Sharron sends that nuke towards Bagdad like he promised.

i think that picture should be on the front page of every newspaper for at least 1 week just to show the mentality of the palestinians. (they are very STUPID!!)

True, but then this photo was not meant for the west but for the Palestinians, Arabians, Egyptians, Syrians, etc., and it will, unfortunately, play well to the intended audience.

10,000 target of opportunity! Maybe the US should sell some daisycutters to Israel. Make no mistake, they not only hate Israel, they hate the US, and the rest of the western world. We will have to take care of them sooner or later.

"We are not only defending our holy places, Christian and Islamic, but every inch of our holy land," Arafat continued.

Yeah, right. He is trying to say that the Muslims are joined with the Christians against the Jews. What a joke, as if he or any Muslim likes Christians any better.
