Palestinian Leader Yasser Arafat Dies
Wednesday, November 10, 2004


PARIS — Yasser Arafat (search), who triumphantly forced his people's plight into the world spotlight but failed to achieve his lifelong quest for Palestinian statehood, died Thursday at age 75.

This is MOST inconvenient!

Now instead of visiting Punchbowl National Cemetary to honor some fallen comrades in arms, I have to grab a cooking pot and a wooden spoon and march up and down the street outside banging away in celebration.

Damn that Arafat, an asshole even in death!

The best explanation for his prolonged fade-out was that he's actually been dead for two weeks, but when he started to smell worse than the French nurses, they finally had to "declare" him. :D

Here's the response from the French...

French President Jacques Chirac said: "With him disappears a man of courage and conviction who for 40 years embodied the Palestinians' struggle for recognition of their national rights."
