Arafat vs. LeBron
The latest report from the Palestinian Authority Finance Ministry indicates that Yassir Arafat personally received nearly 10% of the total PA budget for September. That's 10% of $90 million, or $300,000 a day.
Let's see how Arafat stacks up against NBA super-rookie LeBron James in daily earnings:
Yassir Arafat, Palestinian Authority - $300,000/day
LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers and Nike - $46,000/day
Arafat's outearning LeBron 6 to 1 (and we suspect he's not paying income tax).
The Nobel Laureate "revolutionary leader" of the Palestinian people doesn't have a $90 million sneaker deal, but he does have financiers who are finally starting to wonder.

Arafat should get himself a Hummer. Problem is getting them by the Israeli tanks.
Nothing new about this-- Arafat is a thief on a grand scale, not a statesman. The only surprise is that he has hidden it from "his" people for so long.
