Fascism and
Yasser Arafat

The indisputable authority of the leader:
Fascism comprises a political attitude and a mass movement. Common to all fascist movements is an emphasis on the nation, race or state as the centre and regulator of all history and life, and on the indisputable authority of the leader behind whom the people are expected to form an unbreakable unity.

In 1994, Arafat wrote to groups opposing the Oslo Accords:

"In order to obtain the goal of returning to Palestine, all of us sometimes have to grit our teeth. But it is forbidden that this harm the continued struggle against the Zionist enemy. Cooperation and understanding between the PLO and the rejectionist organizations is what will lead to the speedy retreat of Israel from the occupied territories in the first stage, until the establishment of a Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem. Only a state like that can then continue the struggle to remove the enemy from all Palestinian lands."

A dissenting Palestinian voice silenced by Palestinian vigilante justice

The power of the many united and obeying one will and the authority of the state, which is the supreme source of all law and order and all national life.

Yasser Arafat is the one will that regulates all Palestinian life from the cradle to an early grave.
He brooks no independent thinking only obedience until a murderous death.

Enlightenment Rejected
Fascism rejects the main philosophical trends of the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, the "spirit" of the American and French revolutions with their emphasis on individual liberty and on the equality of men/women and races. The message of "The Enlightenment" had served to enhance the dignity of the individual and had emphasized openness in secularized society.

Supreme Sovereignty
In contrast fascism extols the supreme sovereignty of the nation as an absolute. It demands the revival of the spirit of Sparta with its discipline and total devotion to duty, and of the complete coordination of all intellectual and political thought and activities against modern individualism and scientific scepticism

Yasser Arafat controls the media, the educational infrastructure, all intellectual and political thought, He demands absolute loyalty and obedience from the his devoted Palestinian people.

The apparent duty of Palestinians is to kill Jews and annihilate Israel.

[The Simon Wiesenthal Center has demanded that the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF), denounce the recruitment of juveniles for acts of terrorism, and, that it galvanize child advocacy groups worldwide to act against those who incite, entrap or otherwise abuse children as their agents of death for any cause, anywhere around the world.]

Fascism's antithesis
The Italian slogan "To believe, to obey, to combat"
is Fascism's antithesis to "Liberty, equality, fraternity" and to the prophetic and Judaic/Christian message of peace.

Yasser Arafat has called for a Jihad (Holy War) against all Israel and the Jews -

In 1995, Yasser Arafat told Arab diplomats stationed in Stockholm, Sweden of the PLO plan:

"..To eliminate the State of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion; Jews won't want to live among us Arabs."

Arafat interview with the Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci in 1972.

"The end of Israel is the goal of our struggle, and it allows for neither compromise nor mediation... We don't want peace. We want war, victory. Peace for us means the destruction of Israel and nothing else."

Fascism and armed force
The combination of unquestioning faith and of a virile combativeness transforms a nation/people into a permanently mobilized armed force to conquer, maintain and expand.

A whole generation of Palestinians has been militarized and inculcated with one objective, that of conquering Israel and expanding any territorial gains the Palestinians achieve until a new state of Palestine is created stretching from the Jordan river to the Meditteranean Sea.

Subordination and inequality
Fascism returns to an authoritarian order, based upon the subordination of the individual and the inequality of cast and rank.

Western Civilization and democracy
Israel has repeatedly offered land for peace, but Yasser Arafat always refuses, preferring to use the refugees as political pawns to perpetuate the conflict with Israel and divert public consciousness away from corruption and festering domestic problems.

The creation of a militant fascist state neighbouring Israel is not in the best interests of the Palestinian people, Mid-East stability nor world security. If fascism and terrorism are rewarded with statehood it may portend the end of western civilization and democracy as we know it.
