Everyone Wants a Yasser
“GAZA (Reuters) – Fighters in the Gaza Strip (news – web sites) are proud to show off the latest addition to their arsenal of homemade rockets — the “Yasser Arafat (news – web sites).”
Designed to fly farther and strike harder than other makeshift missiles, it is also a powerful symbol of an arms race that defies hopes that Arafat’s death last month could be a catalyst for peace.
“Al-Yasser rockets show our love and admiration for our historical leader and symbol of our fight against occupation,” said Abu Qusai, a leader of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.”
If they work as well as he did it will be just dumb luck if they kill anyone. What a sad legacy.

Someone posted: “I’m waiting for Arab culture to contribute something to humanity…” I am sure you can use a search engine such as Google to find more than a few things.

I’m waiting for Arab culture to contribute something to humanity…
