The great Arafat-a-palooza

As it seems that he happy event of Arafat finaly kicking the bucket, This blog is proud to present the Arafat-a-Palooza, the best of Arafat throughout the years.
First of all, the best Arafat inspired art in years, Mickey Arafat:

Then we can always remember the more calm, and fluent moments of Arafat with a few videos:
  • Arafat telling exactly where he wants Barak.
  • Yasser Arafat greeting the head of the Orthodox Church in Jerusalem.
As well as some of his more Bizzare moments. Like this must-have interview with Christian Amanpour of CNN.
YASSER ARAFAT, CHAIRMAN, PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY: You have to be accurately when you are speaking with General Yasser Arafat. Be quiet!

AMANPOUR: Mr. Arafat, what did you make of Colin Powell's statement...

ARAFAT: (UNINTELLIGIBLE). You are covering this question. This terrorist activities of the Israeli occupation and the Israeli crimes. Be fair. (UNINTELLIGIBLE).

AMANPOUR: Can I ask...

ARAFAT: Thank you. Bye-bye.
And ofcourse Arafat's candid invitation to Mike Wallace of "60 Minutes":

Wallace: Four out of five Palestinians in a recent poll, 83 percent actually, said they believe that the Palestinian Authority is corrupt; that there is money that has been stolen consistently, that your people – I mean, look. Around here, they have money, they have jobs, they have cars. The Palestinians who live out here in Ramallah, where the unemployment is 36 percent, and down in Gaza, where it`s 48 percent, they don’t live the way that you do. It’s a comfortable life for you and your colleagues.

Arafat: Do you want to see my bedroom?

Wallace: Do I wanna see your bedroom?

Arafat: Yes.

Wallace: I, I’m not sure that I understand the invitation. But what about your bedroom?

I'm now collecting more and more of these funny bits. I'll post more once I'm home next time
