    Veteran leader Yasser Arafat dies

    Veteran leader Yasser Arafat dies

    The veteran Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, who dominated his people's struggle for 40 years, has died in a French hospital, aged 75.
    Israel, which has branded Mr Arafat a terrorist, suggested his death could be a turning point for peace in the Middle East.

    His body will go to Cairo for a funeral attended by Arab and other leaders before burial in Ramallah on Saturday.

    People wept openly and the Palestinian Authority declared 40 days of mourning.

    Mr Arafat died of multiple organ failure at 0330 (0230 GMT) on Thursday - a "black day" in Palestinian history, in the words of Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat.

    The Palestinian Liberation Organisation's executive committee has unanimously elected Mahmoud Abbas as its leader as the late leader's many powers are divided among his officials.

    Flags have been flying at half mast outside Mr Arafat's compound in Ramallah, set to be his last resting place.

    People have been wearing chequered headscarves - Mr Arafat's trademark - and in the Gaza Strip, thousands took to the streets as mosque loudspeakers played quotes from the late leader

    "Our father is dead," construction worker Fathi Abu Adnan told Reuters news agency in Gaza City as mourners let off volleys of bullets into the air.

    Israel has sealed off the West Bank as a security precaution and strengthened security at Jewish settlements.

    'Significant moment'

    French President Jacques Chirac paid tribute to "a man of courage and conviction who for 40 years incarnated the Palestinians' fight for recognition of their national rights".

    Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said the death could be a turning point for peace if the Palestinians "ceased terrorism" and waged a "war on terror".

    Earlier, Justice Minister Tommy Lapid said it was good that the world was "rid" of Mr Arafat, whom he described as "the leader of terrorism against Israel".

    The White House simply described the death as a "significant moment in Palestinian history", and offered condolences.

    It has not been made clear what illness the Palestinian leader was suffering from, though doctors ruled out cancer and rejected the allegation - repeated on Thursday by the Hamas militant group - that he had been poisoned.

    He had been in a coma since 3 November and on Tuesday suffered a brain haemorrhage. In his final hours he had brain damage and kidney and liver failure.

    He had been brought to a military hospital near Paris from Ramallah on 29 October as tests showed he had a low count of blood platelets, needed for clotting.

    In Ramallah, officials said Mr Arafat may be interred in a stone coffin so that one day his body can be moved to Jerusalem where Palestinians hope to have the capital of a future independent state.

    Lost leader

    A hearse is reported to have arrived at the hospital, and a plane is standing by to fly it to Cairo.

    It has been suggested that a military and religious ceremony will be conducted at Cairo's international airport.

    The decision to hold the funeral in Egypt is seen as a compromise, enabling Arab leaders and other guests to attend without the complication of travelling to the West Bank.

    In the absence of a clear line of succession, Palestinian leaders have agreed a plan to prevent a power struggle and chaos in the volatile Gaza Strip:




    • Parliamentary speaker Rawhi Fattuh takes over as president of the Palestinian Authority until an election is held
    • Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei takes over some of Mr Arafat's other powers
    • Mahmoud Abbas takes over at the PLO, headed by Mr Arafat for more than 40 years
    Analysts believe Mr Arafat's death could provide an opportunity to restart the Middle East peace process.

    Was Arafat Poisoned?
    Analysis-Ghassan Andoni-IMEMC, November 5, 2004, 18:04
    The most popular story among Palestinians points to the possibility that
    Arafat was subject to gradual poisoning.

    The lack of information on the results of the week’s long medical checks is
    feeding the poisoning theory and creating more suspicions among Palestinians.

    Arafat’s special doctor Ashraf Kurdi, in an interview with Al-Jazeera TV,
    pointed to poisoning as a possible reason for the low count of the President’s
    blood platelets.

    On Friday, Taiab Abdul-Raheem, the bureau head of the president’s office,
    told reporters that French doctors were looking at poisoning as the “strongest
    possible reason” for Arafat’s illness.

    Local Palestinian media sources quoted unnamed PA sources to have reported
    that a security team was questioning the team working in the president’s
    kitchen.

    The most popular story among Palestinians talks about Arafat receiving small
    dosages of poison on an extended period of time, pointing finger at Israel and
    collaborators with the Hebrew states.

    As Israel announced that it would allow Arafat back after finishing treatment,
    a senior Security official said that “ Israel is working with the assumption that
    Arafat was already dead”.

    Israeli officials saved no opportunity to express their determination to get rid
    of Arafat. Many talked about deporting him, few talked about eliminating him.

    Few days before Arafat was announced sick, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
    Sharon assured Knesset members that his government was still determined
    and working on “getting rid of Arafat”

    Even when it is known that Palestinians in general tend to search for
    conspiracies to explain puzzling issues, this time, and after excluding
    Leukemia, blood poisoning seems to be the most probable reason for Arafat’s
    peculiar low blood platelets count.

    In history, few Palestinian commentators referred to the Israeli Mossad agent
    attempt to inject poison in the body of Hamas’s Leader Khaled Mashal in the
    Jordanian capital Amman. The agent then was caught, and Israel was forced
    to provide Jordan with the anti-poison medicine and release Sheikh Ahmed
    Yassin in exchange to bringing back its captured agent.

    As well, few Palestinians pointed to the cases of ex-Algerian President Hawari
    Bomedian and a PFLP leader, Wadi’ Hadad who passed away after passing
    through similar conditions Arafat is facing right now.

    Evidently, as more time passes with no information on what caused the illness
    of the Palestinian President, who is at those exact moments struggling for his
    life, more theories will emerge, and the conspiracy theorem will build more
    ground.

    http://www.imemc.org/headlines/2004/...20poisoned.htm

    Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat was poisoned by Israel, one of
    his advisers said Sunday.

    The option is being seriously considered by the PA, which has sent blood
    samples to the US and Germany to confirm or rule out the option, he said.
    Arafat suffers symptoms similar to those of former PFLP military leader Wadi’a Hadad, he said.

    Hadad was poisoned in the late 1970s by a close aide who was allegedly
    recruited by the Mossad, the adviser said, although the official reason for his
    death was cancer. "It took Hadad eight weeks to die... he also entered a
    coma", he said, "Unless they find an antidote, Arafat will die," he added.

    R.I.P. Arafat 1929-2004! Do you think it's likely that there will be a uniform of warriors which will be a greater threat to the Jews than any other attack before?

    Post Does (did) Arafat have AIDS?

    TROUBLE IN THE HOLY LAND
    Does Arafat have AIDS?
    With still no public diagnosis, some suggesting HIV may be cause
    Posted: November 4, 2004
    1:00 a.m. Eastern

    By Aaron Klein
    © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com

    With doctors claiming they have still not diagnosed Yasser Arafat despite a week of hospitalization and extensive testing, some commentators have been suggesting the PLO leader may be suffering from AIDS.

    Arafat's condition suddenly deteriorated last night and he was placed in intensive care at the Paris military hospital where he was brought for treatment Friday, Palestinian officials said.

    Arafat has been ill for more than two weeks. Doctors say they've performed extensive tests, and still don't know what he has. Initial blood work performed in the West Bank revealed a low blood platelet count – a sign of a weakened immune system. In addition to cancer, which doctors have ruled out, the low count could be attributed to bleeding ulcers, colitis, liver disease, lupus, HIV, or a host of other diseases. Ulcers and colitis have been ruled out, as well, it is believed.

    Some have been speculating Arafat might be suffering from HIV/AIDS.

    The homosexual site, 365Gay.com, which deals regularly with issues related to HIV/AIDS, ran a piece yesterday reminding readers that, for several years, it has been suggested Arafat is bisexual, and could have contracted the disease.

    "If suggestions that Arafat has AIDS are true, it is doubtful it would be made public," wrote 365Gay.com European bureau chief Malcolm Thornberry.

    National Review diarist David Frum suggested in his column this week Arafat contracted AIDS from homosexual sex with his bodyguards.

    Ion Pacepa, who was deputy chief of Romanian foreign intelligence under the Ceaucescu regime and who defected to the West in 1978, says in his memoirs the Romania government bugged Arafat and had recordings of the Arab leader in orgies with his security detail.

    Various Israeli security sources have in the past suggested publicly Arafat might be homosexual. They've claimed Arafat's former personal driver – a Mossad double agent – used to find teenage boys to bring back to the PLO leader. His wife, Suha, mostly lived abroad and rarely saw her husband.

    Interestingly, Israel's intelligence community, with some of the best capabilities in the world, doesn't know which disease Arafat is suffering from, sources told WorldNetDaily. In fact, Israel has been presented with no evidence – aside from a formal PA request for the transfer of Arafat – that the Palestinian leader is actually ill, sources say.

    "I don't know what [illness] Arafat has," Ariel Sharon's spokesperson Raanan Gissis told WorldNetDaily last week. "Our only involvement was to extend our consideration to the perceived humanitarian problem. This is only for medical treatment, and has nothing to do with our overall consideration of Arafat and the terrorism he directs."

    Arafat's trip to Paris marked the first time the PLO leader was allowed to leave his battered Ramallah compound since 2002.

    With Arafat increasingly isolated in the international community, he has much to gain by escaping the confines of his two year virtual imprisonment. If he gets better, he may have the option of traveling to Arab and European capitals, where he could gather support for his continued leadership.

    Bush and Sharon effectively have persuaded foreign leaders to disregard Arafat because of his direct involvement in terrorism and failure to make peace for his people. Many have agreed that a second Bush term would be the final nail in Arafat's political coffin.

    Post Re: Does (did) Arafat have AIDS?

    I had never heard of this theory until yesterday. A family member said the autopsy report was released by the Arafat family and that AIDS was listed on it... Haven't been able to find such an article, but I did come up with this biased media doozy.
