Polls Apart

Here are the results, so far, from the CNN poll that I mentioned yesterday:

 

Should the Israeli government allow Yasser Arafat to be buried in Jerusalem?

 

Yes     11%  1309 votes  
No      89%  10609 votes
 

 

I bet many of the ‘Yes’ votes came from France.

The French regard Yasser Arafat as a hero rather than a terrorist, according to a new poll.

 

Asked to choose whether the Palestinian Authority chairman is a “hero of national resistance” or a terrorist, 43 percent chose the former and 27% the latter.

 

Ten percent said Arafat fit into both categories, while 9% said he was neither.

 

The poll, published Monday and commissioned jointly by the Lib ration newspaper and a national public radio station, also found that three times as many French people hold Prime Minister Ariel Sharon more responsible for Middle East violence than hold Arafat.

 

In addition, 34% said they had more sympathy for the Palestinians, as opposed to 13% for Israel.

I wish they would bury him there. France is a fitting host for the old terrorist’s rotting carcass.

 

Update: It looks like France’s love for the PLO Arabs may not be fully appreciated.

The Palestinian suicide bomber who killed three people in an attack at Carmel Market in Tel Aviv last week had intended to attack the nearby French Embassy, the Shin Bet security service announced Tuesday.
