Arafat Deserves Execution Not Natural Death
By Yaron Brook
It will be a terrible injustice if Yasser Arafat dies of natural causes, rather than being brought to justice and executed for his crimes.
Among the uncountable atrocities perpetrated by this 'grandfather of Islamic terrorism' and his minions are: the cold-blooded killing of U.S. diplomats in Sudan in 1973; the murder of crippled American citizen, Leon Klinghoffer, aboard the cruise ship, Achille Lauro, in 1985; and countless acts of murder against Israeli civilians.
The U.S. government, whose proper moral role is to protect the lives and property of American citizens and to preserve and dispense justice, cannot let such crimes as Arafat's go unpunished. If international terrorists are not available to the U.S. justice system, justice should be brought to them.
Decades of appeasing Arafat and his heirs have delivered a single unmistakable message to Islamic tyrants and the terrorists they support: Americans can be murdered with impunity. Arafat's execution would help to dispel that lethal message, deliver justice and save American lives.
