    Yasser Arafat's Time to Bake...

    ...appears to have come, or will come soon. I think he is burning in Hell myself. Roger has done a good job covering this, as has Charles. Personally, there were several parts that convinced me, but one stood above the rest:
    Asked why Arafat was not being moved to a hospital, Barghouti said, "there is no difference, he is receiving adequate medical attention here with very good doctors."
    There is no diference between Arafat's compound and a hospital if he is dead. Neither will help him at this point. The fact that Arafat hasn't done anything to re-assert his authority is also convincing. The actions of Palestinian Leaders reek to me of desperate planning for their futures. The moderates are trying to secure themselves, while no doubt Hamas and Dahlan are preparing themselves for a leadership struggle ahead.

    Edit: How this will play out is anyone's guess at this point. I suppose it depends on how quickly news of Arafat's death leaks out into the general populace.
