I admit, I think this is hilarious:
Enraged Fatah leaders on Saturday accused Hamas militiamen of looting the home of former Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser Arafat in Gaza City.
"They stole almost everything inside the house, including Arafat's Nobel Peace Prize medal," said Ramallah-based Fatah spokesman Ahmed Abdel Rahman. "Hamas militiamen and gangsters blew up the main entrance to the house before storming it. They stole many of Arafat's documents and files, gifts he had received from world leaders and even his military outfits."
Sometimes humiliation isn't something other people do to you as much as something you do to yourself.
A Belmont Club commenter:
This story is just so rich in irony that only a silly school girl would have the temerity to tackle it.
"Rich in irony" only begins to describe it. The looting of the most corrupt Nobel Prize in history by the very people it was supposed to help would be tragic if it did not come at the expense of one of the truly evil men in a very bloody century. Instead, it is, well, the funniest thing Hamas has ever done.
David Horowitz offers this. It is telling and truthful.
What Really Happened
That piece from Horowitz is very powerful. It should be required watching for anyone who wants to comment on the conflict between Israel and the Arabs/Muslims (gotta remember the Iranians are not Arabs).
re: buying a Nobel Prize
This is just Soooo typical of the modern man of the West: instead, of earning your Nobel Prize the old fashioned way, Jew-baiting, you seek the easy out – a purchase from e-Bay (and for a pittance at that). Well, here’s a clue, Alan, there are just some honors that money can’t buy!
