Yasser Arafat *The Yasser Arafat article originally had this statement concerning his wife near the beginning of his biography: ''Arafat married late in life to a Palestinian Christian, Mrs. Suha Arafat. They have a single child, a daughter. His wife and daughter live in Paris, France. Mrs. Suha Arafat recently became a French citizen. Arafat's support of Suha has been claimed to be extravagant by some media.'' I refactored the information into three sections (based on the generally chronological nature of the article) as this ''In 1990 Arafat married Suha Tawil, a Palestinian Catholic more than 30 years younger than him who worked for the PLO in Tunis, and converted to Islam before marrying him. and this ''In July 1995 he had a daughter Zawha.'' and this ''After the start of the Second Intifada, Arafat's wife moved to live with her mother and daughter in Paris, France, where she still resides.'', sourcing my information, and '''removing entirely''' the unsourced information claiming criticism of Arafat's "extravagant" support for Suha's lifestyle. However, my proposals for these edits in the Talk: page were rejected by User:Alberuni Alberuni . Though Alberuni often rejects any edits I make "on principle" (because of his assumption that my edits are always part of some grand and concerted hasbara campaign), his stated concern in this instance was that ''Her age is irrelevant and simply reflects your POV attempts at describing Arafat in a negative light whenever possible. '' I pointed out that there is nothing inherently negative about marrying someone much younger than you and that this was an interesting fact often commented on in the press. Other editors have said much the same thing on this topic, stating ''34 years is an important gap and is worthy of note I believe... I am not sure how it could be seen a smear, I think it reflects well on both of them that they didn't let age (or religion) get in the way of getting married.'' nevertheless I removed this information lest someone might interpret the information negatively. 1 Nov 2004 User:Lance6Wins inserted the claim that Yasser Arafat had brandished a pistol at the U.N., based on a BBC article he brought as a source. I pointed out that the claim was most likely false, and should be removed, and even brought a link from a generally pro-Israeli source in order to convince him that this was the case.
