Arafat Expels 20 Militants From Compound

Ok, you look at the above headline and you might think that old frogface has decided to lighten up, to pursue peace by being rid of these "militants" (read: terrorists) that are holed up in his compound.

Well, you would be wrong. Here is the first paragraph of the story:

JERUSALEM (AP) - Yasser Arafat expelled 20 wanted militants from his compound Thursday out of fear Israel planned to break in and snatch them, a further sign that the Palestinian leader worries he might be Israel's next target.

Well Yasser, we can only hope.

So, it was action taken to protect the murderers, but if you just skimmed the headlines, it gives you the opposite impression. Ah, will the wonders of objective media ever cease?

As for Arafat, isn't he way overdue for his rendevous with the black eyed virgins?
