Arafat’s terrorist minions are irrationally ready to lash out. Boy, it didn’t take long for the predictable to happen. (AFP): Call to avenge Arafat ‘assassination’.
THE militant Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades urged militants to attack Israel to avenge the “Zionist assassination” of Yasser Arafat, who died hours earlier in a Paris hospital, said a statement received by AFP today.
“Zionist Israel and the government of (Israeli Prime Minister Ariel) Sharon are responsible for the assassination of our leader by putting him under siege,” the armed offshoot of Arafat’s mainstream Fatah party said.
Announcing a state of high-alert across the Palestinian territories, it called on people to “hit out and strike the occupation everywhere. This crime will not go without punishment.”
