Maybe they're scared to announce it because they fear the reaction

Who said you have to support either one side or the other? Honestly, if this is a popularity contest between Sharon and Arafat, I refuse to take sides. The behaviour of both parties makes my stomach turn.

good point well put across, dr teeth

as far as I'm concerned, they're both fuckwits. It's a bit like the situation in the north of ireland. loyalist paramilitaries - fuckwits. republican paramilitaries - fuckwits.

Unfortunately, when you get two lots of fuckwits fighting each other, it goes on for years and years and years and it's impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel

see my last post... i'd love to give a big FOAD to sharon. but i can't. when the PLO stops sending guys strapped in C4 into discos, then I will be sympathetic to their cause. not a day sooner.

I wonder how long it will be before we find out the truth.

I doubt France has anything to hide (Arafat is in a French hospital for those who didn't know).


Perhaps they will release the information after they contact the next of kin - you've got to plan a funeral and a couple of memorial suicide attacks in his honor....

umm...last time I checked, Arafat was from Palestine, not France. Keep your French bashing to the Freedom Fries threads.

Unfortunately yes....

In the short run things over there are going to get worse.

In the long run things will hopefully get better....we'll see.

Arafat is in a hospital in France. Not sure how that constitutes French bashing.

Considering who he is, they may have been asked not to announce his demise yet in fear of an uprising. Maybe his family or friends are trying to secure a successor first. Or, hey, why not just dismantle the PLO and stop the terrorism? (I know, no chance)

Although he is in a French hospital. I hope he dies, and wouldn't mind if Sharon falls ill and follows suit soon after. It would do good for both of their peoples. Blah. But that is just my oh-so humble opinion. (although with the opposition to his withdrawal plan, it seems maybe he's actually a relative moderate? )

My point was, nbc said France was going to hide it. why all the france bashing AGAIN?

If he dies, he dies. It is not the job of the French government to tell us he's croaked.
