Arafat’s Radio Blesses Woman Bomber
In an unprecedented show of support for a human bomb attack, Yasser Arafat’s official radio greeted with elation the news of latest suicide assault in the Gaza Strip.
The style of the news item, which opened the afternoon news round-up, was more like a birthday greeting than a regular news report, stressing the woman’s identity and “heroic martyrdom” (Arabic: istish-haad) repeatedly.
There was no mention that she was a member of the Islamic terror group known as HAMAS (Haraka al-Muqawwima al-Islamiyya: Islamic Resistance Front).
Arafat’s VOP radio said Israel was to blame for the attack, [ROFL] and it offered no condemnation for the assault at the Gaza crossing point which also serves as a place of employment and access into Israel for Palestinian laborers.

Wonder if Adam Shapiro did a superiority dance and handed out sweets when he heard the news…
