Pronounced dead by a medical authority? I'd say 11/9, 1545 GMT - twenty minutes from now.

It will be announced at 1:30 pm Eastern Standard Time. It hsould have been announced last Thursday. They may have to drive a wooden stake thru his heart to make it official.

Amber:

Here's some background: In his four decades as Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat has run a murky financial empire that includes far-flung PLO investments in airlines, banana plantations and high-tech companies, and may have stashed up to $700 million in hidden bank accounts across the globe.

-All the while, the palestinian people earn $12 bucks a month and live in a hog lot.

LargeBill:

4 AM EST 10 November 2004 (believe that is 9 AM in Paris or 11 in the Gaza Strip). It is going to take that long to get Helen Thomas and 71 other hags too ugly to have been defiled on Earth ready for his arrival in hell.

Sunrise in the Gaze Strip 10 Nov 2004. I don't know the official time of sunrise there, but it will be annouced then for political purposes.

An APB has been issued for John Edwards. The PLO believes this may be Arafat's last chance to rise and walk again.

It certainly good to see the Fwrench staying right on top of the situation....as usual.

I guess we'll know one way or the other when they go to plant him. Now that should be a real interesting project!

MichaelW:

Sundown on Palestinian Independence Day, Nov. 15th.

If Arafat makes a miraculous recovery between now and then, the next Palestinian Holiday (I believe) is Fatah Day on January 1st, which of course would probably mean that December 31st will see the announcement of Arafat's death.

So when do they drag out "Miracle Max" to bring him back? And will he be able to defeat Prince Humperdink? But I digress...pronounced dead at 10:42 PM, Paris time, on November 13. May his journey to hell be swift.

Ya know it's not really Yasser in France. He took a cue from Elvis and will be spotted in a Walmart in Little Rock, Arkansas sometime next week.

Richard L Walus:

After Arafat dies, his mouth should be stuffed with hog intestines, his body smeared with pork fat, and he should be buried on a pig farm in Iowa, if they would have him. Then he could meet with the 72 virgins that are Helen Thomas clones.

I think the PC term for Arafat is "undead".

I think they keep him on ice until Tuesday, for the Lailat al-Kader. This way, his death holds all sorts of religious symbolism. I wonder if they'll lay him out like Lenin, all preserved under glass??? EWW, that would be COOL!

Lastango:

There are factions that want Arafat dead and others that want him temporarily alive, so perhaps the French are auctioning his future to the highest bidder. Meanwhile, though, if the French can verify that there are PLO billions stashed in French banks (right next to Saddam's cash) and no one has the account #'s or codes then the valves get screwed shut forthwith.

Best guess: I'd say the old butcher stays "alive" until Saturday, when we're off the news cycle, at 8:00 PM local time, too late for France's evening news broadcasts.

andre3000:

If there were any cosmic justice, some enterprising orderly would sneak in a substantial amount of explosives, jam one stick of dy-no-mite up the Chairman's hoo-ha and attach a cellphone to the rest.

Then, with Suha and the assorted buzzards of the PLA hovering around him, Yassir finally gets to be the one martyred.

If only Chirac could be paying his respects at the time...

mostlyright:

How about this wild ass idea! Arafat is actually undergoing a "total makeover" so that he can leave his Ramallah prison and join his "fabulous" wife on the French Riviera. New face, new physique bought through the billions he has stashed away. Everyone is in cahoots because they will share in the big payoff. He will blend in unrecognized. His wife has to make all the histrionics to make it convincing. Plausable?? Yeah baby!

The Old Coot:

Y'all better put your bets in a long-term escrow account. MSM is claiming that if Kerry is elected in '08, Arafish will be up and murdering again.

Sue Dohnim:

As much as I'd like to see him pay for all of the blood he's spilled, Arafat will miraculously rise from his deathbed soon.
