Do the honorable thing - according to Arafat

From Palestinian Media Watch:

PA (Fatah) Member of Parliament Muhammad Dahlan has publicly stated that Yasser Arafat was deceiving the world when he condemned Palestinian terror. Dahlan made these comments after defending the Palestinian Authority's "right" to use terror, and citing Arafat's behavior as an example.
The triple-tongued and double-dealing ways of the (thankfully) deceased were known for quite a long time. Dahlan, the upcoming star of PA, introduces a refreshing element of straightforward talk - when it suits his purposes:
Arafat would condemn [terror] operations by day while at night he would do honorable things.
Should I remark that Dahlan's (and many others', unfortunately) understanding of honor is hardly what you and I would easily accept?

Should I mention again that peace here is nowhere close?
