An Inclusive Litany

9/11/01

Following the massive terrorist attack on the United States, several Palestinian Authority officials told the Associated Press that they "cannot guarantee the life" of a cameraman who filmed 4,000 Palestinians celebrating in the town of Nablus if his footage were to air. As a result, Americans only saw footage of smaller celebrations that took place earlier in a different town.

[Ed.: At the same time Yasser Arafat staged a photo-op in which he gave blood to help the American wounded, his official Arab-language news organ praised the terrorists as "noble," "the salt of the earth," "the engines of history," and "the most honorable among us." Arafat was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994.]
