Busted while Bonking near Arafat's Grave

It's not every day that a wanted terrorist is arrested en flagrante delicto while parked in his jeep near Arafat's graveside, making love and not war. He had been on the run for seven years.
Israeli forces in Ramallah countered little resistance when they approached the jeep of Khaled Shawish, a top Fatah militant caught in a compromising position, Aaron Klein reports on WorldNetDaily.

Israelis arrested the elusive militant in the West Bank, just a couple hundred feet from PLO leader Yasser Arafat's grave. Khaled Shawish, currently an officer in the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' presidential guard unit, was hauled off by the undercover cops and charged for involvement in the murders of at least 8 Israelis. Shawish happens to be the Ramallah chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, and is thought to be behind the West Bank ambush in December 2000 that killed Israeli ultra-nationalist leader Benjamin Kahane and Kahane's wife, Talya, and injured their five daughters, the grandchildren of Rabbi Meir Kahane. He also is charged with helping implement several suicide bomb attacks inside Jerusalem, and, despite his injuries, is believed to be one of the top tacticians for The Brigades-- the "military wing" of Abbas's Fatah party.

Several years ago Shawish was struck by a bullet during a faceoff with the Israel Defense Forces and, although he escaped, he has been confined to a wheelchair. But he is still able to get behind a steering wheel and apparently has maintained his sex drive, too.

Klein writes piquantly:

According to Israeli security officials and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades sources in Ramallah, Shawish was arrested after the Israeli police stormed his jeep, which was parked in a lot outside the Muqata, about 200 feet from Arafat's grave. The sources said at the time of his arrest, Shawish was having intercourse in the back seat of his jeep with a Palestinian woman, who...was not his wife.

The Brigades, founded by Arafat, largely considers the late PLO leader's resting place to be a sacred site.


Getting laid where the PLO's leader was laid to rest was hardly in the best possible taste. But ultimately it was the IDF who scored. No bumper sticker warned "If this jeep's a'rockin, don't come a'knockin'", so they did, to Shawish's surprise.
