WorldNetDaily Poll


Here are your choices:
No, fallout would cause more violence in Mideast

No, Arafat can direct terror activities from anywhere in world

No, exile would be letting him off too easy

No, he should be killed


Yes, killing Arafat risks turning him into martyr

Yes, should have been booted long time ago

Yes, peace process doomed until Arafat gone




Not to influence your vote or anything, but Joseph Farah has this to say:
There's a debate raging in Jerusalem and in Washington about whether it is appropriate to exile Yasser Arafat – to expel him from the Palestinian Authority.

I say don't expel him ... shoot him.

Yasser Arafat is responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent Israeli citizens, the lynching deaths of untold Arabs and the killing of more than 100 U.S. citizens, including two U.S. diplomats assassinated in cold blood.

Exile is far too good for him.

Some people get squeamish about calling for violence against "foreign leaders." Arafat is no more a legitimate foreign leader than Adolf Hitler or Saddam Hussein were. If we got a chance to knock off one or both of those tyrants, can anyone honestly say we shouldn't have done it?

Some people say we can't eliminate Arafat because to do so would only make him a martyr to his people. Would we hesitate for a moment to kill Osama bin Laden for the same reason? No way. Therefore, that argument holds no water.

Some people insist there is nobody better to work with in the Palestinian Authority than Arafat. Maybe that's true. I doubt it. But one thing is certain: Nobody in the Palestinian Authority has more innocent blood on his hands than Arafat.

Arafat is the father of modern terrorism.

If we're serious about fighting a war against terrorism – particularly the brand of Islamo-fascism he represents – there's no better place to start than by offing Arafat.

It's justice. It's the right thing to do.

If you want to give him a fair trial first, that's fine with me. But he needs to pay for his crimes with his life.

His crimes are well-documented, but here's a brief refresher course.
