1. Read a report somewhere
that they were looking at toxicology tests to see if he had been poisoned. Anyone know about this?

13. AIDS???
Huh? We would have known he was sick for a long time before now. I mean, he would have been sick for years.

Do you know where you got this info? Thanks for any links you have.

31. Seemed a lot more like a poison to me
Not quite like other people I have seen die of AIDS. There was no emaciation visible, didn't appear to be splotching either.

8. I remember hearing that he got sick soon after eating ...
but I never heard anything else about that. I thought at the time he was probably poisoned, but I never heard any reports that confirmed it.

May he rest in peace. The unrest in the middle east is so scary and dangerous.

11. Yes, and it's about to get
1,000 times worse and all hell's going to break loose. Think what you want about him, and God knows he was certainly no angel at all, but he was able to clamp down at least somewhat on the fanatical terrorist groups and keep at least some semblance of control. God alone knows what's going to happen now.

21. I agree with you exactly...at least Sharon has calmed down somewhat
or am I dreaming...I've hardly paid much attention to anything but the pre and now post election.

30. Enshallah
And lets hope the Israeli's are smarter than the American public (even with suspected voting fraud, nearly half the country likes the pResident) and votes Sharon out for a more moderate PM.
With the leaders of the factions that supported Arafat and Sharon gone, perhaps there can be peace.

10. I imagine he died several days ago, but power struggle...
required denials and secrecy.

28. Interesting response; I wondered at the time of Reagan's death if
it was somehow planned to pull the plug just at the right time...this administration and the media lies have made me so cynical. Most people I trust (the very few I could even mention such to) thought that it would have had to be timed closer to the election for them to think it had been planned.

22. OK, all of you! I just changed the post. That's so funny..Just died live
Oh dear, i'm laughing when I should be (and am) sad. They're showing old photos--so much hope then. His followers truly loved him. And I got to love his big beaming smile!

24. The funeral is to be in Egypt; ultimate goal is burial in Jerusalem if
possible.

29. Here's why I think Arafat was poisoned....................
he supposedly was just fine, then developed an acute gastrointestinal complaint that got worse over several days (he must have been puking his guts out, diarrhea, a mess) while his "aides" dragged their feet getting competent help. Then when in Paris they said he developed liver failure. Then he became comatose and died. I wonder how many Amanita phalloides mushrooms somebody in the Mossad or CIA slipped into his hummus?? It's just suspicious.
