Yasser Arafat Now Live Six Feet Under, In France

Yasser Arafat is dead. He died Thursday at a hospital in France and was announced dead sometime this morning. The question now is, well two questions actually, how do the Palestinians buy or sell anything and who will succeed Arafat. That first question may seem kind of odd but no amount of spending went on unless it was directly approved by Arafat and his 2-3 million dollar Swiss bank account, the problem is no one knows how to access it, yet. As for the second question the United States is backing former PA security chief Mohammed Dahlan as Arafat's successor. One of the other options is been Fatah Secretary-general Marwan Barghouti, sentenced to life in prison for a series of terrorist attacks. So, tell me, someone backed by the U.S. or a guy who has been sentenced to life for turning people into small bloody gory chunks of flying meat. Definitely the guy the is backed by the United States, or as Jim would put it "Barghouti or Jesus, which one is more important?". Not that Dahlan is Jesus, but that Jesus prolly wouldn't be too happy with you if you supported the crazy who is in prison for life. Oh, and for you people who are unsatisfied with my excellent news article go here for the Wrold Tribune article.

UPDATE: I guess hes not dead quite yet. They will possibly pull the plug this Tuesday, check out this link for more information.
