Cuomo, candidate for governor of New York, calls Arafat's Palestinian Authority a terror organization

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Andrew Cuomo, a candidate for governor of New York, declared that the Palestinian Authority (Arafat's make shift government in the West Bank and Gaza), should be defined as a foreign terrorist organization.

"I have told the Secretary of State [Colin Powell] that it is my belief that the PA should be added to the list of foreign terror organizations," Cuomo said Thursday during a visit to the bombed-out cafeteria at the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Donning a black kippa at the site of the July 31 bombing that killed seven people, including five Americans, Cuomo lit a memorial candle and paused in silence at the makeshift memorial set up at the Nancy Reagan Plaza just outside the site of the attack at the Frank Sinatra pavilion.

"Your fight against terror is our fight against terror," Cuomo said in brief remarks at the site, university president Menachem Magidor and vice president Moshe Arad at his side.

More and more people are realizing how much Arafat and his thugs from the Palestinian Authority finance, organize and support the deliberate murder of unarmed civilians, including babies and children.

The evidence is so overwhelming that you have to be an European leftist or an American ultra-liberal to continue in denying that Arafat is a terrorist. Arafat and the PA are no different than the Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Hizbullah who are proud of murdering babies and unarmed civilians.

Cuomo calls PA 'terror organization'

The US should declare the Palestinian Authority a foreign terror organization, the Democratic Party candidate for governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, said in Jerusalem Thursday.

"I have told the Secretary of State [Colin Powell] that it is my belief that the PA should be added to the list of foreign terror organizations," Cuomo said Thursday during a visit to the bombed-out cafeteria at the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Cuomo, the son of former New York governor Mario Cuomo, completed a 48-hour solidarity visit to Israel last night, during which time he met with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, Defense Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, and Chief Rabbi Yisrael Lau.

Donning a black kippa at the site of the July 31 bombing that killed seven people, including five Americans, Cuomo lit a memorial candle and paused in silence at the makeshift memorial set up at the Nancy Reagan Plaza just outside the site of the attack at the Frank Sinatra pavilion.

"Your fight against terror is our fight against terror," Cuomo said in brief remarks at the site, university president Menachem Magidor and vice president Moshe Arad at his side.

Cuomo, who served as US secretary of housing and urban development under former US president Bill Clinton, is facing a primaries in September and a general election in November.

"The rain of terror Israel has experienced all these years is no longer an intellectual concept for New Yorkers. We all got a taste of terror on 9/11, and learned what it's like to live with terror and how difficult it is to fight it," he said.

"It is in times of crisis that you need your friends, and now is when it is important to travel to Israel," Cuomo said. "We will be with you forever." Cuomo calls PA 'terror organization'.

IMO, both Palestinians and Israelis are murderers and criminals, neither deserve their own state.
