The veteran Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has died in a French hospital, nearly two weeks after being transferred from the West Bank.
Mr Arafat, 75, dominated Palestinian politics for 40 years and there is no clear line of succession.
Source Well this doesn’t look good.
yes, i dont know who he is, but i hera his name alot.
This isn't good.
Screw Palestine and its citizens who were rejoicing while the twin towers fell; they can all kiss my ass.
I am unsure as how to feel. Should I feel happy that the death of a former [and possibly up until now, current] 'terrorist' leader has died. Or should I feel sad that the man who has been the face of Palestinian hope and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, has died. In either case, I shall light a candle as a sign of rememberance.
All I can hope now is that Israel and Palestine can begin to work more towards peace.
It's bad because we have no clue what will happen in Palestine now. He was a reletively predictable leader with some respect attached to him.
Well I guess this means isreal shall gain ground
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)
