Muhammad Al-Daya, longtime bodyguard of Yasser Arafat, explained in a recent televised interview how Arafat used to lie when he denounced bombings in Israel.

Arafat “would condemn the bombing in his own special way, saying: ‘I am against the killing of civilians.’ But that wasn’t true,” said Al-Daya, in a BBC Arabic interview that aired on April 3, according to a translation and transcript from MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Al-Daya was asked by thee interviewer: “Ariel Sharon used to say that Arafat was a pathological liar. Many politicians who had dealings with Arafat said he was an excellent liar.”

He responded: “Islam allows you to lie in three cases: In order to reconcile two people… If your wife is ugly, you are allowed to tell her she is the most beautiful woman alive. The third case is politics. You are allowed to lie in politics.”

He then asked if Arafat, referred to here as Abu Ammar, would use those three principles to lie in Al-Daya’s presence.

Al-Daya said: “Abu Ammar? Yes. When there was a bombing in Tel Aviv, for example, he would say… This would happen due to pressure, especially by President Hosni Mubarak. Mubarak would call Arafat and say to him: ‘Denounce it, or they will screw you.’ Arafat would say to Mubarak: ‘Mr. President, we have martyrs. The [Israelis] have destroyed us. They have massacred us.’ But Mubarak would say to him: ‘Denounce it, or they will screw you.’ Then Arafat would condemn the bombing in his own special way, saying: ‘I am against the killing of civilians.’ But that wasn’t true.”

    Don’t forget how Beilin, Peres, Pundak and Peacenow would always defend Arafat after Arafat’s homicide bombing campaign against Israeli civilians.
    These fools also tried to blame Israel for Arafat starting his terror war in 20000.
    Suha Arafat a few years ago admitted Arafat started the terror war in 2000.

    Now Beilin wants to free Mass murderer Marwan Barghouti, the way Beilin helped bring Arafat to Jericho so he could have a base and order the massacres of Israeli civilians.
    Beilin, Peres and Pundak also opposed Israel killing Mass murder Yassin in 04 who was behind ordering hundreds of terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians.
    Terrorism went down 90% after this killer Yassin was sent to Hell.

    This shows how radical and appeasing the Israeli left is.
    Just to remind people.

    Beilin Defends Arafat on National TV

    Beilin continued to appease Arafat the terrorist in 2001 knowing he was ordering Israeli women and children to be massacred.

    It would be a mistake the crush Arafat.

    Abbas is just as evil as Arafat.
    Fatah glorifies Kibbutz Metzer massacre terrorist and Palestinian homicide bomber for slaughtering 8 Israeli civilians on a bus.
    Kibbutz Metzer was about the terrorist incident where a Palestinian gunmen machine gunned an Israeli mother and her 2 sons at Kibbutz Metzer in 2002. The Israeli mother tried to shield her sons, but it was to no avail, the Palestinian terrorists massacred all 3 of them.
    And the Europeans fund these Palestinian mass murderers.

    Arafat was not a “good” liar. I watched on TV when after a terror attack on Jewish children, Peres and Arafat would rush to the scene, where Peres would criticize the attack as being aimed at destroying the peace which He and Arafat were negotiating. Arafat could barely restrain his laughter, since he had given his approval of that terror operation.

  • Arafat could lie as a habit hiding behind the Norwegians shadowed Nazis support for many years. I was claimed an anti – Palestinian by the Norwegian porno newspaper Dagbladet which is a clear evidence that my private art school Oslo Photo Art School had infiltrated Nazi students and teachers since 1996 attacking my ” One Mind” under staged events which had noting to do with the true reality. This could easily bring me into madness. I as a painter which do deal with the ” art of seeing” could easily discover the Norwegian cowardice hided fake mind of disease, deriving from their fear for life. I was claimed anti – Palestinian under Norwegian all-round mind attack, the mother of the infiltrated student V.L. did in fact made a sort propaganda documentary film in Gaza abusing children which is an act of “Madness”. Man is what he is doing and therefore the king of Norway Harald was mind “attacked” by a recruited and abused 13 years old Norwegian girl in Aftenposten newspaper media which made me furious seen the unfairness against our king, it was an unbelievable act of ” Madness”. In fact the infiltrated Nazi students was not at school for the last semester delivering to my school photos done outside the school teaching program which goes for man to be “the idea in it self” into what man is straggling with matters-space as ” One” I do not mean the ” One” as philosophical thought, but the “one” as an object to be watched where the viewer is watched by the object ” picture” in fact the infiltrated Nazi student work was not made by her!!! The anti – Israeli delivered photography was made under support of outsiders people guidance. I hade a lot of this kind of situation where the infiltrated Nazi students did NOT actually made the photography’s related to the school assignment, they were people from outside which did the photography’s ” to attack my one mind”, one mind is universal, it is not a private ” mind” of ego which deals whit the ” Whole under fragmented life events, top down, east – west and unknown mysteries of light reflected by matters which does create new dimensions in mans one mind which I called Not fantasy by self awareness”. Under facts in China I was terrified to discover that some of so called art photographers and performance which were recruited by my infiltrated Norwegian students and teachers did made photo and performance works which ARE similar to the infiltrated Nazi students in my school, those recruited Chinese so called photographers went blindly making photo and performance works which they could not explain their works intellectually, they did the fake art works as robots so long they can make money, who cares, for money everything can be done under given ” ideas”, As we know politics and science, requires talents, Art require genius mind and therefore Norway is finds out to be ” the mad man” under fact of and under Edvard Munch statement ” I did walk life on my grave in Christiania – Oslo city to day. Edvard M. pastel work ” The scream” was abused in NY MOMA under the period of the ” Arab Spring” and A.B. Breivik cold murdering defenseless people, actually ” The scream” has noting to do with screaming, man can see the ” Hands” of the creaming figure which are not kind of screaming character but is a man in his own landscape nature which has nothing to do with and in connection with the world tragedy landscapes where the events did took place in North Africa, Egypt, Israel and Syria. We all know that by historical fact THAT never did happen that citizens of the Arab world went out by their free will to demonstrate in streets against the government! FACT! Islam was created by organized solders, and therefore only military coup d’état is an Islamist safe and secure tradition, the fall of the shah of Iran, the Arab Spring, and some murderous events in Africa where supported and planned by outside people infiltrated in those countries, recruiting and organizing all citizens groups levels into fighting each other, this is possible to day to under modern cheap tourism, fake infiltrated students in universities worldwide, through planned targeted marriages, through oil and telecommunication companies, trough private computer servers which backs up recruited defenseless individuals worldwide into blinded believe ending dead ” For nothing”, after all, if a man is without work, or have blinded political idea, not been able to see that government leaders depend on man which always is wrong before GOD, those defenses people are easy as nothing to recruit, the defenseless recruited people are the majority of the world citizens which did grow very fast the last fifty years into crowded every day life. The Israeli – Palestinian political conflict is a business which I have no part in it! Norway did claim me anti – Palestinian which is an act of “Madness” therefore I’m waiting for Justice, not kind of JUS! Not this kind of right or wrong! But for Norway to admit that Norway did an act of CRIME which is an act of madness! Robbing all I have worked for many years. It will take time for Norway to understand that man can live in a happy life without worry when men’s ” One mind” is in judgment which will always accept life as a simple life among simple people which has contact with their own landscape nature CHINA! The land of peace to enjoy every simple movement which is GREAT! We have seen a Norwegian fake historian claiming the Chinese Ambassador a “Liar” what’s that in fact does show? It shows that the Norwegian historian was bitten to fragmented life by wolfs and the Chinese man did eat wolves fife thousand years ago relaxed in his mom tenderness LOVE!

  • Mel

    Like Arafat, Abbas, Obama and his Muslim grandchildren, John Kerry issues farce whenever he eats foul fava beans.

  • Fred

    It is part of Arab psyche to lie & be devious. The West has blinkers on and can’t see this. Honesty, negotiation sincerity & transparency are to precious to be used in negotiation by Arabs so its never used. The Philistines have shown deviousness as an exclusive Arab art. No surprise about Arafat…

  • I have no patience or trust in dealing with liars.
    Rabbi Kahane, who was murdered by a muslim in Brooklyn,
    said from the beginning, you cannot trust these people.
    They lie. And when you try to make peace and appease
    them, they will only want more. Unfortunately too many have caught on so late.

  • art frank

    As the guy said, lying is ok in their “religion”. So is murder.

  • Fritz Kohlhaas

    Old news!

  • Michael Dunetz

    Its to bad that some one could have not washed out Arafats mouth with soap for being a liar,very naugty little Arab dog bad arab very bad arab!Not good!

  • Bernard Ross

    no one is surprised by this but when will jews move to the next step. reminds me of the US civili rights movement when US blacks were the most anti semitic but Jewish leftists didnt get it until it hit them in the face.

  • Everybody knew that arafat was a lier and so is abbas

    • Kerry M. Berger

      Try spelling it “LIAR” next time George Bokor. At least use a spell check.

      • BK

        Thanks for the spell is that the limit of your intellectual contribution?

  • Raymond in DC

    They have a very different sense of what a “civilian” is. Some Palestinians, for example, have argued that, since Israeli children grow up to become soldiers, they’re not really civilians and thus legitimate targets.

    They (and Muslims following Islamic tradition) also understand words like “peace”, “freedom” and “justice” very differently than we do.

  • Juda Engelmayer

    Josh
    Stories like these come as little surprise to most reasonable people who follow the region and news. We expect that the fundamentalist sectors within Islam that run the governments of Palestinian areas as well as of neighboring countries have zero issues with killing Jews, civilians, military, women and children alike.

    The issue really is what do we do? Status quo cannot work long term, giving land for no real peace just shows that Israel will capitulate, treating the average Palestinian as second and third class citizens is not a good look for Israel either, nor what we are about in the end.

    So, knowing who we are dealing with, understanding that they will likely not welcome Israel and Jews as neighbors in the immediate term and coming generations, and that we cannot sustain managing the Palestinian population and related issues forever, what is the answer?

    Israel must annex the land, allow applicants for citizenship, pay some to relocate, and normalize life for non citizens who are considered low risk and let’s head into a new era where we are past this farce of a peace settlement.

    • wolff bachner

      WRONG. We send them to the existing country of Palestine also known as Jordan. all six million ARABS IN Gaza, Judea, Samaria AND Israel.
