Ding Dong the Witch is Dead

Finally. I posted about this last week, so just a few random left over thoughts.

It is hard to imagine Arafat was sick and dying for a week from "unknown causes". It reminds me of the USSR/Russia as recently as Boris Yeltsin, who would be in the hospital, and no one knew if he was dying, had a cold, or simply found the keys to the vodka cabinet.

On the other hand, French medicine can claim another celebrity victim. Diana princess of Wales died at their hands. There is a maxim in taking care of trauma victims(doesn't always happen, but usually) that if you get to the emergency room talking, you should leave walking. She didn't.

Arafat is the source of most of the world's ills today. He gave terrorism legitamacy(as legitimate as terrorism can get). If you think of all the "fashionable" terror groups from the 60's and 70's(Baader-Meinhoff gang, Red Army, SLA, IRA) most are gone or off the radar screen. Arafat not only popularized killing innocents, but made it "acceptable" as a policy tool. So, his gifts to the world include not only his own horrible acts, but those that imitated and were inspired by him: 9/11, car bombings in Iraq, the Chechen school massacre(ma'alot on a huge scale), the list is endless. Just think what a much better world it would be if he had made peace when he had a chance.

Only God can think of and carry out a punishment that will fit his crimes. Let it begin. I am only sorry that we can not be witness to it, but I have to believe it is occuring as we speak.

Finally, it is a huge mistake to allow the burial on any piece of land we have any hope or expectation of holding on to. Tunisia would have been the best place.
