The Passion of Arafat

Gilad Atzmon

In the last ten days of his life the world held its breath
following what appeared to be an everlasting battle between
a giant freedom fighter and the angel of death. Many of us
were following the news with care, many of us were praying
for the president's recovery. Apparently, not all of us: we
also had a chance to see some necrophiliac Israeli
ministers who would not let go, for them this was an
opportunity to entertain themselves with fatality, an
opportunity not to be missed. They tried to convince us for
the last time that Arafat was a terrorist, that the notion
of him being buried in Jerusalem amongst ˜Jewish Kings was
inconceivable. These Israelis leaders insisted on telling
us that this great man was an ˜enemy of peace. But as it
seems, their viciousness didnt prevail.


At the end of the day, it must be quite
good fun to threaten the entire region with your colossal
nuclear destructive power.

But then, it is not entirely surprising that the Western
world and especially the Europeans are uneasy with the
latest manifestation of Zionism. They stand and stare at
current events with a sense of familiarity. For Westerners,
the passion of Arafat and the via-delerosa of the
Palestinian people isnt a revelation, it is merely a
repetition. A repetition of the birth of the entire Western
ethos, an ethos that is based upon the denunciation of
sadism and the endorsement of empathy. Israel is going the
other way, it is the narcissistic embodiment of any
possible inhuman sense. It is the celebration of cruelty. History
teaches us that when sadistic narcissism reveals its face,
the end should be anticipated. Israel's days are numbered;
it is just a question of time before they turn against

Although the author claims that anti-Semitism no longer exists, I would have to say that this guy has some serious issues with the Israelis and Jews in general.

Based on the information I have been fed by the media, I would have to disagree with the notion that Arafat was anything but a militant leader and roadblock to peace. Although I disagree with his view, it was an interesting perspective nonetheless.

beergoogles, can't you just draw a line between anti-semitism and anti-zionism???

Did you know that there are a lot of Jews all around the world that are AGAINST the whole zionist project? Yes there are! Israel is far fro being the legitimate "promised land" of God... actually it's a land that was given by the bristish, and on which colonization was imposed by military force upon palestinians since 1947.

Arafat was a murderer, a terrorist and is not having perverted pleasure with his dozens of virgin boys, now. He is being delivered his just reward.

To suggest a "Passion" as the one felt by the one true God is a bit warped.
