Arafat "liquidation" is an "option"?

The BBC reported on September 14, 2003 that the Israeli government is considering killing Yasser Arafat, the president of a quasi-sovereign nation, a nation with which it is negotiating terms of co-existence. According to the BBC:

“In an interview with Israel Radio, Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said it was now only a practical question of how to get rid of Mr Arafat.”

The deputy prime minister’s exact words were, "His expulsion is an option, his liquidation is another option. It is also possible to confine him to prison-like conditions.” (

This is a perfect example of Zionist thuggery. The Israeli government wants to choose the leadership of the Palestine Authority. It wants a compliant quisling with which it can deal.

Imagine the outrage if the Palestine Authority had announced that the “liquidation of Israeli prime minister Sharon was another option.”

That announcement would have been rightly called non-kosher by fair-minded members of the international media. An international war-crimes tribunal should be established in order to determine if war crimes allegations against him have fact and substance behind them.

One is reminded of the murder of Swedish United Nations representative Count Folke Bernadotte, a member of the Swedish royal family, in 1948 by the Stern Gang led by Yitzhak Shamir, who later became prime minister of Israel.

It would appear that the government of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is obviously inspired by the heritage of murder and assassination left by the Stern gangsters and a recent predecessor in the office of prime minister, one Yitzhak Shamir.
