The Hamas-Fatah power struggle has descended into the gutter over the past few days, with both parties trading allegations about the involvement of their members in homosexual relations and adultery.
The alleged "sex scandals" are said to have occurred in the Gaza Strip, which fell into Hamas's hands in June.
Shortly after the Islamist movement wrested control of the Strip, Hamas officials began talking about "embarrassing" and "damning" documents and films that were seized inside Palestinian Authority security headquarters formerly controlled by Fatah.
According to the officials, the Fatah men had been spying on several senior PA officials, some of whom were caught on tape having homosexual intercourse.
One of the commentors, Alansfmd (#284) posted this link detailing some of Arafat's close encounters of the anal kind. He's been dead close to three years but stories of his perverted prowess with proselytes of the Prophet live on, thanks to the interweb tubes.
This story caught my attention:
There's gotta be surveillance photos and tapes with this stuff on it. Intel officers wouldn't let this stuff go; it's priceless. I wonder if some Romanian intelligence officers retired in an extremely comfortable lifestyle after making arrangements that these files would never see the light of day?
Allegations regarding Arafat’s homosexuality have been fueled primarily by evidence provided by his former communist allies in Romania.
During the 1970’s and 1980’s, Arafat was a regular in Nicolae Ceausescu’s Bucharest, where Romanian intelligence and its KGB overlords were providing the PLO with the means to gain legitimacy in the West.
Little did Arafat know that Lt.-Gen. Ion Pacepa, the deputy chief of Romania's intelligence service, had rigged his guest suites with surveillance equipment.
In his book “Red Horizons”, Pacepa unveils Arafat as an insatiable homosexual by recalling a telephone conversation with Constantin Munteaunu, a general assigned to the PLO.
"I just called the microphone monitoring center to ask about the 'Fedayee,'" Arafat's code name, explained Munteaunu. "After the meeting with the Comrade, he went directly to the guest house and had dinner. At this very moment, the 'Fedayee' is in his bedroom making love to his bodyguard. The one I knew was his latest lover. He's playing tiger again. The officer monitoring his microphones connected me live with the bedroom, and the squawling almost broke my eardrums. Arafat was roaring like a tiger, and his lover yelping like a hyena."
