Arafat's Heaven

Reader comment on item: "The Hell of Israel Is Better than the Paradise of Arafat"

Submitted by Randy Shapiro (Canada), Apr 19, 2005 at 22:08

A very interesting and well researched article. I went to Israel two years ago and met the Palestinian journalist, Abu Toameh, who used to write for the Official PLO paper and now writes for the J.Post. While he certainly was not "pro-Israel" by any strech of the imagination, and had many issues with Israel, he too said "I'd rather live in Israel's Hell than Arafat's Heaven."

It was one of the most memorable comments I heard on the trip.
