Controversy: Obama Speaks Under Arafat Banner. Comedian El Diablobama follows up with a terrific standup performance
I will never forget when wheelchair-bound Leon Klinghoffer - A vacationing American citizen on the Achille Lauro cruiseship - became another Arafat victim when the hijackers wheeled Mr. Klinghoffer over the side of the ship in 1985.
Of course, today's 20 to 30-somethings have no clue who Yasser Arafat was. If you mention the wheelchair murder, they would immediately insist that was Paul Ryan throwing granny over some fiscal cliff.
