Arafat's picture hangs at the Oxford Union

No joke:
The 185-year-old society, a jewel in Oxford University's crown, is a bastion of free speech where the elite of Britain and many other countries have cut their debating teeth. The framed photos in the entryway honor luminaries from Queen Elizabeth II and Sir Winston Churchill to Robert Kennedy and Yasser Arafat who have addressed the Oxford Union.
This makes it a bit easier to understand the sham "debate" that occurred there last month.
