Arafat in Favor of Saddam

PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat sent a letter of support this week to Saddam Hussein, in which he emphasizes the Palestinian people's support of the Iraqi nation against the Americans. The Palestinian minister of public works, who also serves as coordinator of the PA's relations with Iraq, returned to Gaza yesterday after a few days visiting in Iraq, where he delivered the letter. A large Palestine Authority-organized rally of support for Iraq was held in Hevron this past Sunday.
