Hot from the WTF desk:

It seems that the inanity of PETA has reached an all-time low. Outraged by the use of a donkey as a deployment device for a Palestinian bombing, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk sent a fax to Yassir Arafat pleading with him to "leave the animals out of it". Apparently, it's okay to use people but not donkeys. Now, I may not be the most on-the-ball when it comes to Middle East affairs, but haven't there been untold numbers of humans killed during this struggle for control of the world's holiest site? Now that an animal has been thrown into the mix, PETA has found their voice? You guys are fucking outrageous! There are real issues out there, I don't think they are worrying about one donkey. If you feel so strongly about it, why don't you go over there and form a human shield around every beast of burden in Isreal? It would be poetic justice for a bunch of asses to protect a bunch of asses.

When she was asked why she didn't ask Arafat to stop using humans as portable bombs, she said, "It's not my business to inject myself into human wars...".
So, I guess we'll be hearing more from her when the next Great Cat-Dog War inevitably erupts.
