And the funniest thing is that Arafat's first name "Yasser" sounds like Turkish/Tatar word
" mean "captivity".
There must be certain connection between the way Arafat enslaved minds of Middle-Eastern Arabs and the name given by his father, don't you think ? ;)

Thanks for the interesting details.
I did not know the meaning of that name in Turkish/Tatar;
sounds very relevant for this monster indeed.
Yasser is a very popular name in the arabic sphere for muslim boys.
It has a lot of variants: yaser, yasar, yasir... etc...
(the vowels are not written in arabic.)
Anyway, many of these arabs were illiterate.
Yasser means: prosperity, wealth, affluence, ease.

The amount of Muzz and leftists supporting that war criminal proves, that his Failestinian propaganda reached fertile ground - dA, Twitter, tumblr and YT are full of fifth-columnists spreading lies revolving around Palestinian Arabs. Carlos Latuff is one of the most notorious cases of severe Semite Anti-Semitism combined with right-wing-phobia and leftism; he has been described well here
Arabs have never been good at standardization - since they managed to divide their religion into 3 main branches (Sunni, Shia and Wahhabi) plus unknown amount of lesser sects, it's not surprising even their male names don't have one variant.
Mess in Arabic terminology might had been caused by Colonial period between 19th Century and 1960s, when they adapted devices not known by their beloved prophet; I've heard that Arabs dwelling former French colonies (Algeria, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia) have different names for household items (brought by the French) than their brethren from ex-British colonies (Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Oman, Iraq, Kuwait); while Libyan Arabs adapted words from Italian. Guess Saudis and so-called "Palestinians" have own dialects as well; though still it's one language.

Funny thing is that around the '80s-'90s, people made fun of his red-wite patterened head scarf, as it looked like a table cover.
Even the most famous Hungarian comedian Géza Hofi has joked upon his head scarf (starting around 35:30) :

Thanks for the link.
Funny sketch! :D
That "keffiyeh" looks like a table cover (or a napkin) as you say. ;-)
It also looks like a dishcloth.
I have also seen similar pieces of cloth used as cheap door mats for rooms like garage, utility room, toilets etc... LOL
I have also seen it used as mop, floor cloth to clean the floor.

Thank you very much.
It is an arab, Yasser Arafat.
Arafat was founder and leader of the Fatah political party and later the chairman of the PLO and president of the PNA.
Arafat spent the majority of his life dedicated to fighting Israel.
Arafat's legacy has left him highly scorned and vilified for leading the failestinians into the "Al-Aqsa Intifada",
a war with Israel that lasted five years from 2000 to 2005 and claimed thousands of lives.

It was Arafat, who caused the Jews so many issues after the 1973 war - when Israel's neighbors were unable to beat the Israel down, Arafat launched guerrilla wars against legitimate authorities in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
Saltwarer mentioned Intifada war - perhaps you remember from news on TV and newspapers the period between 2000 and 2005, where masked Arabs ("the Failestinians") caused riots and attacked Jews with anything they could find, including throwing stones at Israeli tanks. That was the second Intifada, which only proved that Hamas and Fatah are terrorist organizations.
