Can They Come Get Carter's, Too?

Looters Raid Arafat's Home, Steal His Nobel Peace Prize
By Khaled Abu Toameh

Enraged Fatah leaders on Saturday accused Hamas militiamen of looting the home of former Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser Arafat in Gaza City.

"They stole almost everything inside the house, including Arafat's Nobel Peace Prize medal," said Ramallah-based Fatah spokesman Ahmed Abdel Rahman. "Hamas militiamen and gangsters blew up the main entrance to the house before storming it. They stole many of Arafat's documents and files, gifts he had received from world leaders and even his military outfits."

Abdel Rahman said the attackers also raided the second floor of the house and stole the personal belongings of his widow, Suha, and daughter, Zahwa. "They stole all the widow's clothes and shoes," he added. "They also took Arafat's pictures with his daughter."

Eyewitnesses told The Jerusalem Post that dozens of Palestinians participated in the raid, which took place late Friday.

What is wrong with us? Are you telling me that there is NO IRONY in a group of terrorist thugs breaking and entering the house of another terrorist thug, stealing his Nobel Peace prize, and then stealing his clothes and photos? I mean, what the heck? What is the resale value of a Nobel Peace prize anyways? Can you see Arafat's uniforms ending up on E-bay, with the note that they were "only slightly used"? Maybe the proceeds of all this stolen loot will be used to fund more breaking and entering, more murder, and more acts of terror? Can you just see some greedy imam rubbing his hands together, calculating how many RPGS he'll be able to buy with the sale of the stolen Peace Prize? The whole thing reads like a so-bad-it's-good Mad TV sketch.

RS & Donal-Oh, I recognize the irony, it is quite delicious actually. Especially since Arafat only married as a cover to his homosexual predilictions. So his wife(an arabic christian by birth) and daughter live in Paris on his illgotten gains...irony all over the place!

Long time no post.

Live by the sword die by the sword.
Arafat was a corrupt terrorist who stayed in power by fleecing his people, buying allies and killing rivals.

Good to see you are still blogging away.

Les you may stay here. We allready have an official troll and to be honest you just don't measure up to our lofty standards for trolls.

Believe it or not the Duck has fans who read every day just to see his antics. I have been on several radio blogs and the request has always been for a showdown in a new format.
