Is He Dead Yet?!

When dealing with Yassir Arafat, even in death, truth takes a holiday.

The cauldron of rumors and lies surrounding his condition is a metaphor for his life; it's impossible to get a straight answer.

He's dead. He's not dead. His condition is stable. His condition is deteriorating. Take your pick.

Meanwhile, since Palestinian political life has been limited to a collection of asteriodal characters orbiting around the gas giant Arafat, his indisposition has totally discombobulated any sense of governance in the West Bank and Gaza.

In death, even as during his life, Yassir Arafat continues to bring confusion, chaos, and suffering to the very Palestinian people he claimed to represent.
