A Pity the "Son of 60,000 Whores" Can't Die as Many Agonizing Deaths

Here's what I said about Yasser Arafat's death when his deteriorating condition first broke:

"Good. I hope he suffers greatly on the way to his fiery fate. My only disappointment is that he's expiring of "natural causes." It would have been far more poetically just if the Israelis had shot a missile up his ass and instantly transformed his worthless carcass into li'l Palestinian pork sausages."

Certainly he deserved a death at least as violent as the thousands to which he sent Palestinian and Israeli alike. Just as he does not remotely deserve the idolatrous adoration of the morally obtuse Western elite (his postumous hero status in the Arab world is a woefully foregone conclusion).

Skim through them, if you can manage to hold your dinner down:

* Black Jacques Chirac, the greedy French imperialist warmonger who just days ago invaded Ivory Coast, described the bomb-happy Arafat as a "man of courage and conviction." The latter term, of course, being a bitter irony.

* Fellow weasel Gerhard Schroeder, chancellor of socialist Germany, boo-hooed that "it was not granted to Yasser Arafat to complete his life's work." True: So many Israelis are still alive.

* Another one of genocidal maniac Saddam Hussein's allies, Russian President Vladimir Putin, tutted that the Palestinians had "suffered a heavy loss." Meaning, I guess, that now they'll have to find somebody else to rob them blind and order them to blow themselves up in Haifa mass transit buses and Tel Aviv pizzarias.

* United Nations' moronic secretary-general, Kofi Annan, blubbered that Arafat had "expressed and symbolized in his person the national aspirations of the Palestinian people." Which is rather difficult to determine, in actuality, since Arafat never allowed a genuine election.

* Former US President Jimmy Carter called Yasser Arafat "a powerful human symbol [of the foulest swine] and forceful advocate [of mass murder]" who united Palestinians in their pursuit of a homeland [that Arafat walked away from four years ago in favor of a futile terror war that has their "national aspirations" farther away than ever]. "Yasser Arafat's death marks the end of an era [We and the Israelis should be so blessed] and will no doubt be painfully felt by Palestinians throughout the Middle East and elsewhere in the world [How difficult is it to find another vicious thug in that culture?]," Carter said. [Insertions mine - could ya tell?]

* Communist Chinese dictator Hu Jintao called the dead billionaire thief "an outstanding leader of the Palestinian cause." A nearly honest statement, since the "Palestinian cause" has been and remains to finish the job Adolph Hitler started.

* Nelson Mandela says, "Yasser Arafat was one of the outstanding freedom fighters of this generation." A shining tribute from one murderous terrorist to another.

This next one is really disappointing.

* The Vatican's chief spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, stated: "The Holy See joins the pain of the Palestinian people for the passing of President Yasser Arafat. He was a leader of great charisma who loved his people and tried to guide them towards national independence."

A shameful thing it is to see anti-Semitism wafting forth from any corner of Christiandom.

President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair took the diplomatic route, skimming over Arafat and his horror to focus on the "opportunity for a fresh start to the 'peace process'" that his croaking supposedly represents. I tend toward a far more pessimistic view of what will come next, as echoed here.

Only Australian PM John Howard ventured forth a comment that was remotely morally appropriate:

"I think history will judge [Arafat] very harshly for not having seized the opportunity in the year 2000 to embrace the offer that was very courageously made by the then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, which involved the Israelis agreeing to about 90% of what the Palestinians had wanted."

Thank you, Mr. Howard. That act forever called Arafat's bluff, and blew apart his phony, Nobel prize-festooned "statesman" facade, exposing him once and forever as the bloodthirsty killer he always was.

There were two more dollops of proper perspective.

* Jeffrey Mazzella, executive director of the Center for Individual Freedom: "Yasser Arafat promoted the Palestinian cause through terrorism, and the United Nations was his willing accomplice. As the PLO’s campaign of murder and hijacking was at its height, the United Nations granted the organization observer status, rewarding it for its campaign of killing. The Secretary-General's comments reveal that, yet again, the United Nations has cast its lot with terrorists, against Democracy and freedom."

* Justice Minister Tommy Lapid told Israel Radio: "I hated him for the deaths of Israelis. I hated him for not allowing the peace process to move forward. It is one of the tragedies of the world that he didn't understand that the terror that began here would spread to the entire world."

Not quite "shot a missile up his ass and instantly transformed his worthless carcass into li'l Palestinian pork sausages," but it'll do.

UPDATE: You think I'm harsh on the now-roasting Hitlerite reprobate? Give Ben Shapiro's column a look. He drags "the old terrorist sack of shit"'s cadaver through the streets by its withered tool.
