Don't Forget the Victims

The media has been doing its darndest to make Arafat somehow seem respectable. The whole affair is rather silly. The man was nothing more than a murderous thug. No one will miss him; and I am quite sure that God has had a very special place prepared for Arafat in the deepest, darkest pits of Hell.

There has been one, little detail, the press loves to brush over in his death, and that is all the victims of this man's terror. This site really got to me today. It is a listing of all the victims of Arafat's intifada starting in 2000. At first I just scrolled down watching the progression of the dates, stopping to look at the multiple of names listed for a single day....there are so many. Then click on a random name and learn about someone that was simply living their life and were cut down by Arafat and his henchmen. For the next few days, we will all need perspective, because the media will surely NOT provide it.
