Jewish Group to Mourn Arafat’s Victims as the Father of Modern Day Terrorism Dies
15:30 Nov 11, '04 / 27 Cheshvan 5765

(IsraelNN.com) The following statement was released by Rabbi Avi Weiss, president of the Amcha organization, ahead of the rally in memory of the victims of Yasser Arafat’s life of terrorism.

“The Jewish tradition teaches us ‘when an enemy falls, never rejoice.’ Still, it must be said – Yasser Arafat was one of the most vile people of modern times. Arafat is responsible for the deaths of more Jews than anyone since Adolph Hitler; Arafat is responsible for the deaths of American diplomats and civilians; and Arafat is responsible for the deaths of countless numbers of his own people. For all of these and other crimes against humanity, he can never be forgiven.

“Just as the world will be much better off without Osama Bin Laden, so too is the world much better off without Yasser Arafat.

The memorial will be held outside today (Thursday) outside the PLO Mission to
the UN in New York City, at Park Avenue and 65th Street, at 17:00.
