Arafat appears to be seriously ill lately. While his people say it isn't life threatening, you have to wonder, would it be for the better or worse if he were to die?

If he dies, it will probably be blamed on a Zionist conspiracy and the Mossad.

I would say yes for sure. It may even if israel bombs the guy. Something needs to change over there, because they keep doing the same thing all the time.

There's a report from a French speaking news thing in Israel that he's died from a heart attack. Most probably unfounded though.

There are reports from Time that he has stomach cancer.
