Yasser Arafat, head of the PLO and advocate of massive amounts of terrorist attacks throughout his lifetime, collapsed Wednesday and according to Haaretz
is in critical condition or may even be dead.
Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's health has deteriorated and he is in critical condition, Palestinian sources said on Wednesday night. The sources went on to say that a team of doctors in his Ramallah headquarters were fighting for his life. According to some reports, the PA chairman regained consciousness, though he was suffering from hallucinations.
Some would say he's been suffering hallucinations his whole life.
Israeli officials speculated early Thursday that Arafat had suffered a stroke.
Israel will let Arafat go for treatment anywhere he chooses, whether at home or abroad, officials said on Wednesday.
"He can go for treatment anywhere he wants, in or out of the country," said one senior official, but added that the question of whether Arafat could return after was "a separate issue after he recuperates."
I wouldn't let him come back. The real question is what will result when Arafat finally dies?
