Several recent reports say that September 12, 2001 photographs of former PLO leader Yasir Arafat donating blood were staged. However, new information reveals that Arafat did, in fact, want to give, but was squeamish at the sight of the needle.
“Chairman Arafat always believed that it is better to shed someone else’s blood,” said a source close to the now deceased terrorist leader. “However, in this case he really was motivated to give his own blood to the American victims of the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center destruction. After all, this way he could give them AIDS and other venereal diseases that he carried.”
