Yasser Arafat was the successor of Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Amin Haj al Husseini, who was murdering Jews.
Al Husseini and his men was behind the massacres against Jews in 1920, 1921 and 1929. But also against British nationals in the years from 1936 to 1939, In 1941 the Grand Mufti appeared as an ally of the Nazi-regime in Germany. He was a cruel war criminal, a fanatic Arab anti-Semite and a hater of the Jewish people.
The past history of the Middle East is easy to forget, because it is very unpleasant. The heritage of Amin Haj al Husseini was picked up by Arafat in the 1960-ties. This is a taboo that we need to reflect on, the close relationship between Arabian anti-Semitism and the movement that Arafat was a leader of.
Last week there was a Fatah convention in Bethlehem. During this gathering, the Fatah politicians again started to accuse Israel of killing Arafat. Even some to the Arab Palestinians who attended this convention, blamed the Jewish people for the swine flue.
The Arab anti-semitic poison is surely not dead and buried.
