Arafat Jewish?

The JTA reports, “Yasser Arafat may be related to Jews, according to a PLO official’s new book. Israel’s daily Yediot Achronot on Tuesday quoted Yasser Arafat and the Zionist Solution for the Palestine Crisis as claiming that the Palestinian leader’s father was born in the Moroccan village of Al-Kidwa and had family links to the large Jewish population there. The author, Razi Hussein, is the PLO’s legal and political secretary in Damascus, the newspaper said. There was no immediate reaction from Arafat, who always has claimed to be a scion of the noted Al-Husseini clan of Jerusalem.”
