KUWAIT — PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat delivered a stinging criticism of President Reagan today, calling him "a robot and parrot who . . . has no logic" and does not measure up to the example of his predecessor, Jimmy Carter.
It was not clear what prompted the Palestine Liberation Organization chief's outburst, but the Reagan Administration said this week that it would approve of Israeli retaliation for Friday's terrorist attacks in Rome and Vienna.
Reagan "does not know the meaning of abiding by his pledges and the commitments of his Administration," Arafat told the official Kuwaiti News Agency. "Reagan also does not cherish values and does not know the meaning of returning good deeds."
He said there was "no point of comparison" between him and former President Jimmy Carter--"a man of principles derived from his true Christian spirit."
