Apparently Yasser Arafat has become a film critic (unlike the Pope). He says that "The Passion of the Christ" is "Impressive". The article from the "International Press Centre -- Palestinian National Authority State Information Service" also includes this little gem:
Nabil Abu Rudeneh, one of Arafat's closest advisors, watched the film along with the Palestinian President and a group of American and European men of cloth and Palestinian Muslim clerics.

"The Palestinians are still being daily exposed to the kind of pain Jesus was exposed to during his crucifixion," Abu Rudeneh said in a statement after he watched the movie.
Ah, so the Palestinians = Jesus, and if so, the Israelis and current-day Jews = Christkillers. Interesting theology....

(My thanks to PaleoJudaica for pointing this article out).
