Ok, there's something going on that I think we non-Muslim's are ignorant about surrounding Yasser Arafat's death and how it is being pre-arranged. Bear with me here as I put forth my theory.
Throughout history, events have been specifically made to happen on certain dates in order to give them more importance. The current very closely guarded state of Yasser Arafat's condition, I believe, is being specifically targeted to coincide with a date of importance in the Islamic calendar.
Tuesday night is the night that Muslims believe the Koran was given to the prophet Mohammed. They know it as Lailat al-Kader. By having Yasser Arafat be declared to have died on this day it could be used as propaganda in elevating him to a symbolic saint in the Muslim world.
Arafat may have died a few days ago and the French and Palestinian Authority being involved in the cover-up of his death in order to have the benefit of somehow linking his death to an important day to keep the fight alive for Palestinians.
There is recent news that the Palestinian Leaders are heading to France in preparation of his death. There is also word that Arafat's wife, Suha Arafat, called into Al-Jazeera in a plea to the Palestinian people. "Let it be known to the honest Palestinian people that a bunch of those who want to take over are coming to Paris tomorrow, You have to realize the size of the conspiracy. I tell you they are trying to bury Abu Ammar alive," She said. Abu Ammar is Yasser Arafat's given name.
If true this is a wide conspiracy on the part of the leaders prepared to take over to give Arafat more status in hopes of retaining their positions in following through on his declarations.
We should know for sure tomorrow if this conspiracy put forth is even possible. If he is not declared dead tomorrow then the question will be whether that was their plan and it was dismissed or that it was just a conspiracy theory all along.

As I said on another site . .
If He dies . . There will be a Bloodbath
If he lives . . . There will be a Bloodbath
Doesn't matter, except to the "Newsies" . . probably the average Palestinian doesn't even care! They need somebody to set up an economy in that country, so that they can own something more than an AK-47, and can dream of more than being a Homocide Bomber. That's Arafat's legacy . .
