Arafat with his “Christian infidel”
Why? Because he married a “Christian infidel.” From Israel Insider, with thanks to Jerry Gordon:
Sources close to Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat confirmed that he has asked his supporters to check the possibility of burying him adjacent to the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. A Muslim group with strong influence on the Muslim Waqf (religious trust with responsibility for Muslim holy sites) fiercely opposes the move. MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) proposed a Knesset bill that would ban all burial on the site.
Leaflets distributed in Jerusalem yesterday by the Muslim Liberation Party, a tiny Muslim faction with a strong presence on the Temple Mount, called for thwarting Arafat’s plan, the Jerusalem Post reported.
“We warn this wicked infidel, who married a Christian infidel, against contemplating desecrating the holy Aqsa Mosque,” the leaflets said.
