image for Yasser Arafat was a Comedian and then a Terrorist
A young Arafat the comedian.

Archeologists in Syria have discovered a modern terrorist hideout amongst ancient ruins located near the King Habibi Airport. Thousand year old artifacts were discovered along with skeletal parts during the construction of a Habibi Hummus fast food restaurant. Strewn throughout the ancient rubble a trove of weapons and personal items were unearthed. Part of the modern artifacts included a journal penned by a young Yasser Arafat.

Amazingly the Arafat journal discloses that he was a stand up comedian in his early twenties. Arafat wrote of his days performing at the Beirut Comedy Club during the golden years when Beirut was known as Paris of the Middle East.

Yasser Arafat had a comedians name and look, and it is no surprise to Middle Eastern scholars that the young man was a funny guy.

Many of the jokes written by Arafat appear familiar:
Take my wives, please.
I just flew in from Cairo and boy are my arms tired.

A few are originals:
A Rolling Stone gathers no moss. Like Moss would grow on Mick Jagger.

Creative Camel Publishing of Detroit, Michigan will publish the complete Yasser Arafat Journal next year.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
