The Fox of Arafat

A JP a report on the man in charge of the Hezbollah rockets here:
"Imad Mughniyeh is the overall commander of the Islamic Resistance [Hizbullah's armed wing] in southern Lebanon," said a Fatah official who said he knew Mughniyeh well during the '70s and '80s.

"He's nicknamed tha'lab [the fox], and today he's considered the second important figure in Hizbullah after Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah. We're very proud to have a Palestinians holding such a high position in Hizbullah," the Fatah official said.

Mughniyeh, who is believed to have been behind the abduction of the two IDF soldiers on July 12, is also reported to be in charge of Hizbullah's rocket unit in south Lebanon. The unit has fired more than 1,600 rockets at Israel during the current violence.

This FOX was Arafat's closest and involved in the bombings of the US Embassy in Beirut and the Marine Barracks in 1983. He was left behind when Arafat fled. Here is the FBI listing on the Most Wanted list.

I was so MAD when Arafat came to the Whitehouse in the Clinton years. He never wanted peace. Now his buddy "Fox" is lobbing rockets at Israel. Hezbollah has to be destroyed. They will not give up trying to destroy Israel. If Hezbollah succeeds the USA is next.
