Beat me to it. Its official. Al-Jazeera says so!
2004-11-10 11:12:03 PM  
This just in... Yasser Arafat is still dead...but Francisco Franco is alive!
2004-11-10 11:12:11 PM  
Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace.
2004-11-10 11:12:15 PM  
Dead link to Yahoo. Blah...
2004-11-10 11:12:41 PM  
Nuke him from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
2004-11-10 11:12:44 PM  
Document not found.
2004-11-10 11:12:49 PM  
Later, dude. Don't let the flames of hell hit you in the ass.
2004-11-10 11:13:04 PM  
Doh! Didn't close my tag. Mods, delete previous post, please?

Er, that Yahoo link didn't work.

CNN has it on their front page, though, with a lovely graphic.

I wonder if they'll have something as pretty when Saddam Hussein dies.

/wonders how long the CNN graphics department has had that lying around

can we get an updated on this page HA
2004-11-10 11:13:13 PM  
They did all this on purpose just so no one would ever really believe it when it really happened.
2004-11-10 11:13:24 PM  
shiat hitting fan in 5... 4... 3... 2...
2004-11-10 11:13:30 PM  
Well damn. I hope he had a few heart attacks on the way. Maybe a stroke or two, cause I know they hurt like hell. I hope he was in serious pain, begging for death to take him away.

If there is anybody on this earth that does not deserve to die in his sleep under a fog of pain killers, it's this murderous bastard.

Rot in hell, Yassar. May God turn his back on your soul.

/not starting a flame, just saying it the way it is
2004-11-10 11:13:40 PM  
glad to hear that he has improved.
2004-11-10 11:13:57 PM  
Mistah Arafat, he dead.
2004-11-10 11:14:00 PM  
Somehow, I blame this on the Yankees not beating the Red Sox...

Why is eveyone so happy, Did this man not win some major peace prize?

seriously let us all hope that a man of less hatred takes his place.

Fireworks in Jerusalem???
2004-11-10 11:14:38 PM  
OK, I see it on CNN.

Does this mean I get to go outside and scream like a moron while shooting my AK-47 indiscriminantly into the air?
2004-11-10 11:14:42 PM  
It can't be true. If it were, the Palestinians would be dancing, shooting guns in the air, and giving candy to children. Or is that sort of celebration reserved for dead Jews and Americans?
2004-11-10 11:14:59 PM  
He leaves a nine year old daughter.

At least he won't be hiding behind couches with an automatic weapon anymore.
2004-11-10 11:15:01 PM  
if he is dead, DAVROS is dead.....
2004-11-10 11:15:06 PM  
/wonders how long the CNN graphics department has had that lying around.

That's the first thing that popped into my head.
2004-11-10 11:15:14 PM  
NPR too says he's dead.
2004-11-10 11:15:17 PM  
Such a pretty picture... for such an ugly man.

Worthy of a Monty Python reprise....
2004-11-10 11:15:51 PM  
Strangely, Al Jazeera's website just says he's critical.
2004-11-10 11:15:54 PM  
2004-11-10 11:16:12 PM  
Third time lucky?
2004-11-10 11:16:30 PM  
Okay...and he accomplished....What?



Meanwhile Palestine does not exist, and his ex wife's bank accounts are fatter than her hips.
2004-11-10 11:16:39 PM  
I'm sitting the newsroom of a newspaper in Western North Carolina and we're heaering that this is for real. Time to scramble the copy editors and rework A1. uggh.
2004-11-10 11:16:42 PM  
You know, being a United States citizen, brought up in public schools, I was given the impression that the palestinians are bad and the Isrealis are good.

But I was watching a special on the History Channel over the summer and about the acts of terrorism carried out by Isreali commandos in the 50's and 60's... most of the acts just like the terrible bombings carried out by Arabs against Jews, killing only innocent people.

Kinda makes you think.
2004-11-10 11:16:42 PM  
Remember the lesson of Chile. Just because you're rid of one leader you don't want (Allende) doesn't mean his replacement can't be even worse (Pinochet).
2004-11-10 11:16:44 PM  
MrBigglesworth Does this mean I get to go outside and scream like a moron while shooting my AK-47 indiscriminantly into the air?
Careful. Apache helicopters are known to mow you down for such celebration, just ask Iraqi wedding attendants.
2004-11-10 11:16:49 PM  
ding dong the dick is dead!
2004-11-10 11:16:50 PM  
Whatever happened to that Iraqi press minister... he get captured or what?
2004-11-10 11:16:50 PM  

I understand where you're coming from but that sort of righteousness is what always leads to doing dispicable things to people.
2004-11-10 11:16:52 PM  
Wow. So he IS dead. Wicked. I guess. Meh. Sad for his family and friends.
2004-11-10 11:16:59 PM  
I guess, since Mr. Kelley is dead....

I'll be the first to make it official.

He's dead, Jim.

*looks around*
2004-11-10 11:17:09 PM  
2004-11-10 11:17:14 PM  
You sure? Really? Positive?

Wait, he's dead?

I guess Halo 2 Bored him to death!!

\Here all week!
2004-11-10 11:17:20 PM  
Anagram for "Yasser Arafat": A FAT ASSY REAR.

Nice huh?
2004-11-10 11:17:24 PM  
Who is this Arafat guy away, he a Jew?
2004-11-10 11:17:58 PM  
Can we get Castro to go/not go/maybe go/consider being gone next?
2004-11-10 11:18:00 PM  
Yahoo now has a "Arafat Not Dead" article right above the "Arafat Dead" article.
2004-11-10 11:18:10 PM  
Someone cache right now!!!!!!!
2004-11-10 11:18:25 PM  
May the afterlife have greater mercy and forgiveness than ever I shall feel for him, and than he has shewn to those with whom he interacted. And on a personal level, I would quite enjoy defacating repeatedly upon his baked, pig-chewed skull.
</yes, dead.>
