Yasser Arafat calls upon children to become murderers

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Yasser Arafat, the current Palestinian "President", has once again shown what a violent, mindless bastard he is, by calling upon children to become murderers:

Palestinian kids in a "summer camp", simulating an attack on Jewish women and children
Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat on Friday called on Palestinian children to follow the example of Fares Odeh, a 13-year-old boy from the Gaza Strip who has been immortalized posthumously by a photograph showing him throwing stones at an IDF tank. Odeh was alleged to have been killed on November 8, 2000 after being shot by IDF soldiers.

Arafat was speaking at a reception he held in his headquarters in Ramallah for hundreds of children from Jerusalem participating in summer camps. Many of the summer camps in the West Bank have included in their programs this year visits to Arafat's office. [...]

Some of the summer camps in the Gaza Strip have been named after Odeh and other Palestinians killed in the violence since September 2000. In the Tulkarm refugee camp, a soccer tournament was named last year after Abdel Baset Odeh, the suicide bomber who carried out the attack in the Park Hotel in Netanya in March 2002.

Many of these Palestinian children are brain washed in "summer camps", where they are thought how to hate Jews, murder women and children and blow themselves up in buses - click here for example to see a 5-year-old Palestinian kid proudly dripping her hands in Jewish blood.

Arafat calls upon children to become 'martyrs'
By KHALED ABU TOAMEH, Jul. 12, 2003, Link

Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat on Friday called on Palestinian children to follow the example of Fares Odeh, a 13-year-old boy from the Gaza Strip who has been immortalized posthumously by a photograph showing him throwing stones at an IDF tank. Odeh was alleged to have been killed on November 8, 2000 after being shot by IDF soldiers.

Arafat was speaking at a reception he held in his headquarters in Ramallah for hundreds of children from Jerusalem participating in summer camps. Many of the summer camps in the West Bank have included in their programs this year visits to Arafat's office.

Arafat has often cited Odeh's case in speeches praising the role of children in confronting IDF soldiers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. When IDF tanks and armored vehicles surrounded his headquarters last year, Arafat declared: "I'm not better than martyr Fares Odeh, the brave Palestinian boy who confronted the tank. These tanks don't frighten me."

In another interview following a similar IDF operation, Arafat said in response to a question whether he wasn't afraid: "What is the danger? No one can scare the Palestinian people. You can ask Fares Odeh."

At the reception on Friday, Arafat also announced that Palestinians would from now on mark July 10 as the anniversary day of Fares Odeh. He also repeated his famous statement that the day will come when a Palestinian child would hoist the Palestinian flag over the walls of Jerusalem's Old City, its minarets and churches.

"A people that has the likes of Fares Odeh and other children martyrs will not die," he added.

Odeh, of the Zaituon neighborhood in Gaza City, has become a Palestinian icon after being photographed defying a tank with a slingshot in his hand, his valor celebrated in graffiti. His picture adorns calendars and his poster has been painted on the walls in the Gaza Strip and West Bank and in many PA offices.

Some of the summer camps in the Gaza Strip have been named after Odeh and other Palestinians killed in the violence since September 2000. In the Tulkarm refugee camp, a soccer tournament was named last year after Abdel Baset Odeh, the suicide bomber who carried out the attack in the Park Hotel in Netanya in March 2002.
