Arafat ask Saddam for more money.

The message was sent in a telegram offering holiday greetings for the Muslim holiday Id Al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice) earlier this month. The message was published in an Iraqi newspaper on Saturday.

Arafat sent warm regards to Saddam on behalf of himself, the PA leadership and Palestinian people as well as "deepest prayers to Allah the Glorious, may He lead our steps...and strengthen our brotherly ties, cooperation and solidarity in a way that will serve our interests, our rights, our nations, and the future of our generations and repel all dangers that loom presently over us in our region."

"Any kind of support and assistance from you in these difficult times will enable us to continue our persistence and resistance until we put an end to the occupation, in all its manifestations, of our holy Al-Quds [Jerusalem] and the Islamic and Christian holy shrines,"

Trying to get a little before Saddam is gone?
