After a cat and mouse game with death all his life, and after a weird week of everyone guessing and second guessing whether he was dead or alive and whether he had AIDS (Israelis' favourite theory) or whether the Israelis had poisoned him (Palestinians' favourite theory, though even US soldiers in Iraq have joked about that) Arafat is least we are pretty sure he is..

Whether you just hate the man or idolise him...both views that are pretty narrow i would think...since life is infinitely more complicated than that...It cannot be denied that he left a mark on history..whatever that means to people.
