I think he's dead dead this time, but you never know the Palestinians may change their mind.
The official announcement was made on Thursday by his senior aide Tayeb Abdel Rahim.
"The Palestinian leadership mourns Yasser Arafat ... who died at 4:30 this morning," said Abdel Rahim, near tears.
The Palestinian president died with his 40-year quest for a state unachieved, a succession scramble pitting old loyalists against a younger generation on the cards, and Israel cementing its grip on occupied land in the absence of diplomacy.
Let the games begin. Power, Power, who wants the Power? I expect major in-fighting and battles for control. After all, these people haven't shown they can work out anything in a peaceful manner and have always resorted to blowing something up.

Does anyone else think it strange that Yasser Arafat died after two weeks in a Paris hospital without a diagnosis? Tests and tests, manana after manana, but no diagnosis. Then came the concrete burial vault, making sure that the diagnosis, and there had to be one, was not easily uncovered. Sounds like AIDS to me.
Someone has to talk about this.
