Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat asked Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein for continued help in fighting Israel. “Any kind of support and assistance from you in these difficult times will enable us to continue our persistence and resistance,” Arafat wrote in a letter earlier this month to Saddam, according to the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute. “Hand in hand,” Iraq and the Palestinians will march to Jerusalem, Arafat added.
