Sharon Vows No Arafat Burial in Jerusalem

From Israpundit

Jerusalem public radio is reporting that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said he would block any request by Palestinian officials to bury terrorist leader Yasser Arafat.

"As long as I am in power, and I have no intention of leaving, he (Arafat) will not be buried in Jerusalem," the premier reportedly told Israel's weekly cabinet meeting in response to a question by Justice Minister Joseph Lapid.

I find it odd that there is still no discussion of whether he will be let back into the country. France's foriegn minister has said that he will always be on Arafat's side. They can keep him.
