Who said that?" Smiling broadly, he answered himself: "The Prophet".

More on Egyptian Factor in Arms Ship Affair

Another Arafat "Welcome" Due for Zinni
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report January 1, 2002
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has not been idle since Israel confined him to Ramallah in the wake of the last deadly round of terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians a month ago.
