Arafat: “Allah, give me martyrdom.”
A man can dream, can’t he? Else what’s a hell for?
Arafat wants to die like a snail wants a salt lick. If he had a single concern past his own celebrity, wealth, and power, he’d have taken the Camp David II deal, and built a real nation for his people. Instead, he continues to urge young men and women to kill innocents for no good reason and no just cause.
And even if the Israelis kill Arafat slowly with low-grade sandpaper, he has the same odds of becoming a holy martyr as I have of becoming chaste, sober, and soft-spoken — on a Friday night.
