A Little Bit Pregnant

Mirabile dictu! Yasir Arafat has finally admitted to ‘Some corruption’ in the Palestinian Authority. But don’t get too excited. The Red Sea is not about to open again or green gila monsters to descend from Mars. According to the Guardian…

Mr Arafat, who has been resisting intense pressure to halt official corruption, reform the security services and relinquish some of his near-absolute powers, did not outline what the mistakes had been or how he planned to correct them.

UPDATE: Perhaps this amusing (unless youre a poor Palestinian) account of Suha’s Travels will explain some of Yasir’s recent travails. What interests me is that only now are the Europeans beginning to investigate this massive fraud, which was evident to the casual observer for years. (hat tip: Fausta… in the comments)
