Mrs. Arafat keeps husband

I have mixed emotions about this one. On the one hand Arafat is a human being and on the other he is one of the biggest promoters of terror in the world. And if he is dead, what is going to happen in Isreael and Palestine. Will the Palestinians goe into chaos and blow everthing up in Israel or will they find a leader that will lead them into a peaceful pact with Israel. ONly time will tell. And ehat about all the money he has taken from the Palestinians. I winder how many of the Palestinians know about all of the money that is in Swiis banks. And if he is dead how are they going to get at the money to run thier government. It might sdlow down the suicide bombers for a while because their families will not get paid. Well see............

RAMALLAH — Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat has died. He was 75 years old.

Israeli and Palestinian officials said Arafat died on Thursday in a military hospital in Paris. They said Arafat was deemed clinically dead, but is still attached to life support systems on the insistence of his wife, Suha.

Palestinan Authority's Yasser Arafat: Abbas and Qurei sought to acquire his power to allocate money as the PA chairman departed for Paris. But as he boarded a Jordanian Air Force helicopter, Arafat refused. "I'm still alive, thank God, so don't worry," Arafat was quoted as saying. Reuters/Loay Abu Haykel
"He is dead, but neither Arafat's wife nor the Palestinian leadership is ready to announce this," a PA official said. "The announcement could take place on Friday."

The problem is that Arafat is still the only Palestinian official who can pay the bills. And it is unclear who, if anyone, has access to the estimated $2-3 billion in his personal Swiss bank accounts, according to a report in the current edition of Geostrategy-Direct.com. Even his wife is said to be unaware of how to access the funds.
