LAUGH OF THE WEEK:
ARAFAT'S MUSICIANS RELEASED JUST IN
MER - Washington - 5 Oct:
Arafat and his "authority" have totally
corrupted and intimidated the Palestinian press; but even so oftentime
word does leak out about matters large and small.
It seems that Arafat's musicians made
it to his latest coming back home from the U.N. party just in time. The
members of the Palestinian "Presidential Orchestra" were actually imprisoned
last week by the Palestinian Authority after they said they were going
on a peaceful strike to protest their low wages -- especially in juxtaposition
to the corruption all around them. The musicians were freed from prison,
appropriately chastised, so that they could perform in honor of Arafat's
return from his recent lack-luster appearance at the United Nations.
