Arafat Looks in Mirror, Sees ‘Face Of Terror’ By Scott Ott
After the King of Jordan encouraged Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat to “have a long look in the mirror to be able to see whether his position is helping the Palestinian cause or not“, Mr. Arafat reported today that he has “seen the face of terror.”
“I was shocked and dismayed,” said Mr. Arafat. “All of this time I have thought of myself as basically a good guy, working through legitimate means to help the oppressed. But after looking in the mirror, I realized that I am a dirty terrorist who murders innocent civilians to further my ambition for power. I was quite taken aback.”
Jordan’s King Abdullah, who broke with the Arab world’s tradition of unmitigated support for Mr. Arafat, said “once we see ourselves for who we are, it’s the first step to recovery.”
Both the king and the Palestinian leader will appear later this week on Dr. Phil to discuss Mr. Arafat’s “moment of personal enlightenment” and whether King Abdullah and the Arab League may have served as “enablers” to prevent him from seeing “the real Yassir.”
