  • “These brutish Palestinians need to learn that democracy is about choosing a leader who can speak for all Americans.”

  • “Hey, there's nothing like martyring a leader to calm the Palestinian extremists.”

    Jason Mantzoukas –

  • “Arafat should be replaced with someone younger and cuter, like that dreamy Hamas hunk Hafiz Mahmet al-Bahri. Oh, he was assassinated?”
