The Palestinians just released a statement saying:

That Arafat's cardiologist says Arafat is "currently conscious and doctors are tying to determine whether he can fulfill his duties"

In scumbag dictatorships, that's the standard kind of cover story for "the guy is already dead and we're trying to fill the power vacuum without imploding. "

HU-RAH!!!

This scum sucking monster has so much blood on his hands that I will personally point my AK-clone in the air and shout

LULULULULULULULULULU!

... when he's confirmed dead.

Do you get the feeling this guy is proped up in a corner with toothpicks keeping his eyes open while they decide who is going to take over.

My prediction, Arafat is dead or will be come sun up tomorrow.

R.I.P. - Rot In Pieces!
Link Posted: 10/28/2004 12:48:43 AM EST
RAMALLAH, West Bank - An ailing Yasser Arafat (news - web sites) performed Muslim prayers before dawn Thursday and ate a light breakfast, but his condition remained serious and a team of doctors flying in from Arab countries will decide whether he needs to be transferred from his compound to a hospital, aides said.

Arafat's Health Worsens, Doctors Visit Him
(AP Video)



Arafat's condition appeared to improve overnight, and Palestinian Cabinet minister Saeb Erekat said the Palestinian leader was stable. Arafat woke up at 3:30 a.m., prayed and chatted with aides, Erekat said.


On Wednesday evening, the 75-year-old leader's persistent, two-week illness took a sudden turn for the worse. Arafat vomited after eating soup, then collapsed and was unconscious for about 10 minutes, a bodyguard said.


Aides urgently summoned doctors from Jordan and Egypt, and Arafat's wife, Suha was en route to the West Bank from Tunisia to be by his side. Mrs. Arafat lives in Paris and has not seen her husband since 2001.


Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (news - web sites), in a telephone conversation with his Palestinian counterpart, Ahmed Qureia, agreed in principle to allow Arafat to be flown abroad for treatment, but it remained unclear if that would happen.


Communications Minister Azzam Ahmed said that Palestinian leaders had asked all the members of Arafat's Fatah (news - web sites) party living abroad to come to Ramallah.


"We are preparing ourselves for everything possible," he told the Al-Jazeera satellite television station.


On Thursday, Arafat performed pre-dawn prayers and had cornflakes for breakfast, said Monib al-Masri, a longtime friend of Arafat who visited the Palestinian leader Thursday.


"He prayed and he is fully awake," al-Masri told The Associated Press.


Arafat has been confined to the sandbagged, partially demolished compound for more than two years. He has been kept inside both by occasional Israeli military blockades and by threats that he would not be allowed to return if he leaves.


However, Israeli security officials said Thursday that Israel was ready to guarantee Arafat's return should he seek treatment abroad. Israel is doing everything it can to avoid being blamed for Arafat's health problems, officials said.


Arafat's illness sparked speculation about the continuity of Palestinian leadership.


An official in Arafat's office said the Palestinian leader had created a special committee composed of Qureia, former Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, and Salim Zaanoun, head of the Palestinian National Council, to run the Palestinian Leadership Organization and the Palestinian Authority (news - web sites) while he is ill.


But when asked if Arafat had set up such a committee, Arafat spokesman Nabil Abu Rdeneh said: "Nothing like that."


White House spokesman Scott McClellan, traveling in Michigan with President Bush (news - web sites), said U.S. officials were monitoring the situation.


In Israel, defense officials met Thursday to prepare for the possibility of Arafat's death. Israel has drawn up contingency plans, including how to deal with possible riots and prevent Palestinian attempts to bury Arafat in Jerusalem.


The Israeli daily Haaretz reported Thursday that Israel has marked a possible burial site for Arafat in the Jerusalem suburb of Abu Dis, in the West Bank, and has taken the location of the plot into consideration in planning the route of its West Bank separation barrier.





Speaking in radio and TV interviews, Israeli officials, who have ostracized Arafat as a leader tainted by terror, speculated about the repercussions should Arafat die.

A Palestinian Authority without Arafat could become a partner for peace, said Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom. "We always said we would be willing to talk to a Palestinian leadership that would be willing once and for all to bring an end to the bloodshed," Shalom told Israel Radio.

Arafat has been ill for two weeks, but reports about his ailment have varied widely.

Palestinian officials said he had the flu. Israeli officials speculated he might have stomach cancer, but two of his doctors said Wednesday a blood test and a biopsy of tissue from his digestive tract showed no evidence of that.

On Tuesday, a hospital official said Arafat was suffering from a large gallstone. The gallstone, while extremely painful, is not life-threatening and can be easily treated, the official said.

Dr. Ashraf Kurdi, head of the Jordanian team summoned to Ramallah, told The Associated Press he was given no details about Arafat's health.

"I tried to get a medical report from them. I couldn't get anything," said Ramallah, who arrived in the West Bank on Thursday.

Israeli officials speculated that Arafat had suffered a stroke. He has shown symptoms of Parkinson's disease (news - web sites) since the late 1990s.

Arafat has not left his compound since 2002 for fear of being snatched by Israeli troops. Israel has previously said Arafat was free to leave the compound and even travel abroad, but it would not guarantee he would be allowed to return.

Arafat's health crisis has highlighted how unprepared the Palestinians are for their leader's death, making a chaotic transition period all but inevitable. Arafat has refused to groom a successor, fearing an impatient protege could turn on him.

No leader of Arafat's stature and popularity is waiting in the wings, said Palestinian legislator Hanan Ashrawi. "It's only natural to expect that there would be either a power struggle or there would be a loss of cohesion," she said.

Rival security chiefs are already battling each other in the streets, and analysts said it could take years for a leader to emerge, hurting prospects for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

On paper, at least, a path of succession has been charted.

The parliament speaker would replace Arafat as Palestinian Authority president for 60 days, until elections are held.

However, current speaker Rauhi Fattouh is a bland backbencher uncertain to hold on during a turbulent transition period, and timely elections appear unlikely.

Arafat's other post, as PLO chief, would be filled, at least temporarily, by his deputy in the organization, Abbas, who resigned last year after power struggles with Arafat.

Barry Rubin, an Israeli biographer of Arafat, predicts it would take several years before a real leader emerges.

"As long as the battle goes on, no one can make decisions, especially moderate or compromise decisions," Rubin said. "This means the chances of a negotiated peace are close to zero."

Yup, you can see the headlines now...

"Palestinian Chairman Yasser Arafat, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, has passed away..."

Murdering cocksucker. Giving that piece of shit a prize for PEACE destroyed any legitimacy it may have had left.
