Kuwait, Arafat on Family Feud

In an classic display of convoluted reasoning, and tribal feuding, the Kuwaiti's say the recognize Arafat as the 'leader of the Palestians'-- they just won't deal with him.

Arafat it seems, has never admitted that his support for Saddam's invasion of Kuwait may not have been such a good idea.

Arafat has real trouble admitting his errors. Corruption, bad government and support for an Intifadah he wanted that have led to disasterous results for the Palestinians, make no difference to Arafat.

Of course, that should come as no surprise.

Just doing what he's been doing all along, has made Arafat a rich man.

A British intelligence report, issued in 1994, put his wealth at between 10-11 billion dollars.

It's good to be the tyrant.

Kuwait: we recognize Arafat, but not dealing with him

The Kuwaiti foreign minister Sheikh Muhammad al-Sabah al-salem announced yesterday that Kuwait does not deal with the chairman of the Palestinian authority Yasser Arafat.

The Kuwaiti minister repeated "Kuwait considers itself in a state of not maintaining political cooperation with Arafat."Replying to a question on that Kuwait did not propose an alternative for Arafat, he said "we do not interfere in the internal affairs of the Palestinians." He added "I do think that Arafat has made great mistake against Kuwait and did not correct this mistake, but on the other hand, I do not withdraw my recognition of his legitimacy as a representative for the Palestinians."

Replying to a question on the steps needed from Arafat to correct the mistake he had committed, the Kuwaiti minister confined to saying "He knows these steps."
