EI's Ali Abunimah speaks on Democracy Now!

Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat declared no one will “kick me out” after the Israeli Security Cabinet authorized the army to “remove” him. Meanwhile the Jerusalem Post called for Arafat’s death. The Israeli government authorized the army last night to “remove” Yasser Arafat and gave its security services a green light to move against the 74 year-old Palestinian leader “in a manner, and at a time, of its choosing.” Electronic Intifada co-founder Ali Abunimah spoke with host Amy Goodman in Democracy Now!’s New York studios.
