Everyone Wants a Yasser

"GAZA (Reuters) - Fighters in the Gaza Strip (news - web sites) are proud to show off the latest addition to their arsenal of homemade rockets -- the "Yasser Arafat (news - web sites)."

Designed to fly farther and strike harder than other makeshift missiles, it is also a powerful symbol of an arms race that defies hopes that Arafat's death last month could be a catalyst for peace.

"Al-Yasser rockets show our love and admiration for our historical leader and symbol of our fight against occupation," said Abu Qusai, a leader of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades."

If they work as well as he did it will be just dumb luck if they kill anyone. What a sad legacy.

I'm waiting for Arab culture to contribute something to humanity...
