UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon pays homage to Arafat

Well, at least he refused to meet with Hamas. But in addition to his doing nothing about the Saudis' refusal to admit an Israeli journalist to their country, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon also perpetuated the myth that there is a difference between Hamas on the one hand and 'moderate' 'Palestinian President' Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen, Fatah, and the thankfully dead Yasser Arafat on the other hand. Ban went to visit Arafat's Ramallah grave today.

Hat Tip: NY Nana

And lest you have any doubts about how the 'Palestinians' are playing this:
PA Information Minister Mustafa Barghouti told an Arabic radio station that Ban’s meeting with Abbas was an official recognition of the Hamas-led PA government. "This government is a single team," Barghouti said. "Whoever meets with one member is meeting with the entire government."
But wait, it gets 'better':
Earlier Sunday, Ban visited Bethlehem and the Gush Etzion region south of Jerusalem. He said there that the wall being built by Israel does not “serve the peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority” and called for its removal.

Ban later met with the parents of PA Arabs serving time in Israeli prisons for involvement in terrorist activity.

The secretary-general also visited the grave of Yassir Arafat in Ramallah Sunday. He laid a wreath of white flowers on the site before closing his eyes in meditation. Ban will meet Prime Minister Ehud Olmert Monday and be taken on a tour of the Yad VaShem Holocaust Museum’s Holocaust Art section Monday by government officials.
Sounds like the guy can't decide which side he's on....

Thanks for the hat tip, Carl. Sadly, with the U.N., it only gets worse.

I would love to see the bulldozers take the eyesore on the East River down...my uncle zt"l designed the structural steel, but he would help take it down. It has been, for far too long, a Country Club for the haters of Israel and the Jews.

After Ban Ki-moon's visit to Arafat's grave and to the families of imprisoned terrorists? He will defile Yad VaShem.

He doesn't like the security wall? Tough.
