BBC Reports Arafat Dieing
    #3319345 - 11/04/04 12:41 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Israeli radio is reporting him dead. The French hospital states 'he is not brain dead', and that he is in critical but deteriorating condition. There were also reports that he was in a coma. Very confused news, but it does not look good for the old guy.

That's a nice thing to say. Realise that you have been trained to hate Arafat by your 'liberal' media.

While he used methods that are not acceptable in the sixties and seventies, he has worked hard for peace between the two parties since that time. He was part of working out the Oslo agreement where both the Palestinians and the Israelis made tough compromises. That plan was buried by extremists on the Israeli side with US blessings.

That being said, it will probably benefit a peace process when Arafat disappears since it's been out of the question for the current Israeli administration to cooperate with him. Hopefully this will also pave the way for more moderate leaders on both the Palestine and the Israeli sides.

I don't HATE arafat at all, I pity him.  I'm also not a liberal so i don't see the point.

That tends to happen when you support homicide bombings in the country you're trying to make peace with.

All you need to know about Arafat is that he insisted on wearing his pistol while addressing the United Nations General Assembly. And all you need to know about the United Nations is that they let him.

don't be an ignorant dousch, accept the fact that it is what it is. If it makes you uncomfortable that's too bad.

I will now continue to use homicide bomber in absolutly every post that is on this topic just to spite you.

the intention is to kill people, hence homicide bomber, if you want to go out into the middle of a field and yell "Allah akbar" then press the button you would be a homicide bomber.

I hope he dies. Not because I hate him, or think he is a bad guy, but because one less person on this earth benefits me. So, I support the grim reaper and his attempts to take human lives.

homicide bombing...isnt that a bit redundant? The term suicide bombing denotes the suicide feature of the bombing for the sake of clarity, whereas "homicide bombing" provides little information other than people died (which is usually the case with bombings, no?); if I were to blow up a building full of people remotely, that is a homicide bombing. If you were to overhear talk of a suicide bombing, you would immediately know that someone committed murder while killing themselves.

"homicide bombings" is Faux News newspeak. The White House coined the term, of course. Only Faux News uses it however. It is term intended to remove the cause and source of the bombing (the individual who strapped explosives to their chest and waist and whatever led them to do such a horrific act) and focus attention purely on the the victims of the bombing. Simplification, in the mind of Faux News and the White House, is a virtue.

while the term "homocide bomber" in lieu of "suicide bomber" is pretty silly, the blues are the champions of newspeak, only it's called "political correctness".
