Yasser Arafat Death Watch Thread

Posted on 09/11/2003 11:02:55 AM PDT by thoughtomator

Guess what, everybody? It's time for an event we've all been waiting YEARS for...

the...

Yasser Arafat
Death Watch Thread!

To commemorate this glorious moment, let's all contribute our testimonials to the character of ol' Yasser. Suggestions for NON FRENCH champagne are heartily welcomed, as well as pics of 9/11, our brave troops in Iraq, the noble men and women of the Israeli armed forces, cartoons making fun of rag-heads in general, and quotes from old Mark Steyn columns!

I will personally send a box of chocolates to the person who picks the time closest to Yasser's actual passing (or a case of beer if you prefer)!

Pop them corks, the celebrations are right around the corner!


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: arafat; yasser

I'd still rather that they throw him in jail and not let him speak to anyone, and just show pictures of him cleaning toilets and stuff from time to time so people know he's still alive. I'd hate it if he became a "martyr" to those wackos.

BTW, lets pin you down. Godiva? How many pounds? I prefer nutty ones and caramels, and none of the stale cheap ones.

A precious little girl walks into a pet shop and asks in the sweetest little lisp, "Excuthe me, mithter, do you keep widdle (awa)wats?"

As the shopkeeper's heart melts, he gets down on his knees, so that he's on her level, and asks, "Do you want a widdle white (awa)wat or a thoft and fuwwy bwack (awa)wat or maybe one like that widdle bwown (awa)wat over there?"

She, in turn blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees, leans forward and says in a quiet voice, "I don't fink my pet pyfon weally gives a thit."

December 25, 2003 Christmas Day or during Chanukkah (December 20-27, 2003) at 6:30 p.m. PST would be an appropriate time to celebrate ole Yassir's demise. Let's hear it for ole araRATfink: Hip, Hip, Hooray!

This celebration - although festive and hopeful - is nonetheless premature. I don't think Israel will get the green light from the US to "take care of business" and they don't have the nerve to do it on their own. Yasser's not going anywhere for a while.

Count me in:

Tuesday Sept. 16th at 9 PM Eastern Time (this should put it about at 4 AM Wednesday over there, right?)

And the way I think it's going to go down is that Israel will order him out of the country, he'll refuse and hole up in his compound or somewhere, there will be a standoff, IDF goes in to get him, and he gets caught in the crossfire (accidentally on-purpose).

I certainly hope so. Unfortunately - in my opinion - it hasn't been much in evidence for way too long.

I predict that Arafat will die on a Jewish holiday...

...ANY day Arafat dies on is a Jewish holiday!

He will die of natural causes. I seriously doubt Israel will try to go get him, due to US pressure.

The only possibility I see is that a deal is struck that Arafat goes to Egypt.

I'd love to celebrate, but the simple truth is that he'll die of old age keeping the billions in his private account for his wife.

Bush will never allow it. He will interfere and Arafat will still be blowing up Israeli citizens until Christ comes back.

This weenie is personally responsible for more deaths than entire wars in other countries. I look forward to seeing him out of the picture for good.

Tom Daschole will, of course, be "saddened, deeply saddened" and the Hildabeast will have to find another terrorist's wife to hug but, thats how it goes.

I hate to say this but Yasser will carry on for a while.
He will only go when Ariel Sharon finds his political carrer at a dead end. The last thing he will do before leaving office will be to get rid of him so that one of sharon's successors will not claim that crowning moment. Sharon will not complete his term in office. He could be in a better state of health himself.
