Right Intention: Arafat & UN

Arafat & UN

I learned from the National Review Online that the UN ordered its flags lowered to half staff yesterday for Arafat.

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan praised Arafat's struggle to win international recognition for the Palestinian cause, as he ordered flags to fly at half-mast at the United Nations.

One question, did the UN order its flags lowered to half staff for Reagan's death? I have no idea if it did or did not, but few things would highlight the contempt the UN has for the US than it showing more respect for a mass murdering terrorist than for the man who helped defeat communism and liberate hundreds of millions of people. Even if the UN did give Reagan that consideration, it is disgusting that it would give this honor to someone like Arafat.
