May 8, 2002

NEW YORK – A new report by the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) documents the years and years of false statements and bizarre conspiracy theories circulated by Yasir Arafat and other Palestinian Arab officials.

The ZOA report, Arafat’s Legacy of Lies, reveals:

* Palestinian Authority officials and the PA media regularly describe the Holocaust as “a deceitful myth.”

* Arafat and his aides have claimed that Israel murders Arab children to steal their body parts … A terrorist group led by Ehud Barak murders Israeli citizens in order to accuse Arabs of terrorism … The Israeli Army sends naked women to trap Arab fugitives … Israeli airplanes drop bags of poisoned candy in Arab villages… Israel injects Arab babies with the AIDS virus … Israel causes cancer and Mad Cow disease among Arabs.

* PA officials and the PA media accuse the United States of trying to impose on Muslims to change their language of religious education” … “seeking to destroy Islam” … “seeking to control Muslim countries and their resources” … and trying to “impose its hegemony on the world.”
