Am I evil for having immediately thought “Good!” when I heard this news:
Yasser Arafat’s gaunt, fragile appearance during last weekend’s inauguration of an emergency cabinet for the Palestinian Authority has raised a flurry of speculation over the state of the 74-year-old leader’s health. Palestinian officials on Wednesday denied rumors that Arafat had last week suffered a mild heart attack and explained that Arafat has been suffering from a bad case of the flu or an intestinal infection. But according to a source inside the compound, the recent working diagnosis is that Arafat is suffering from stomach cancer. Al-Jazeera TV reported Wednesday that two teams of doctors, one from Jordan and the other from Egypt, arrived in Ramallah Wednesday to treat Arafat. Abu Dhabi TV reported on Thursday that following their examination of the Palestinian leader, the Egyptian doctors “expressed concern” about the state of his health. Neither report specified his condition.
If you said that makes me evil, you are going to hate what I thought next- “I hope it is a really advanced case.” And please spare me the “Any loss of human life is a tragedy” nonsense.
TERRORIST. That is what the man is, was, and will always be. A terrorist.
