FNC's Jenifer Greffin (sp) said earlier there was some worry about this mob trying to take Arafat's coffin a try to walk to into Jerusalem.

I am watching as well; and I AM worried. I sure her Mother is!

I hope Fox folks are not compromising themselves being so close - although I think they are on a rooftop - above the fray a bit; but not sure. . .in any event; they had better be safe. . .

Remember the Khomeni funeral? How they charged the Huey carrying his casket while the blades were still spinning? How they yanked the casket out and passed it around until the lid popped off and the contents fell out? O infidel dogs, that put the "fun" in "funeral!" We could be looking at a repeat!

Do you remember what happened during the funeral procession for the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran? His adorers swarmed the coffin, causing it to tip over and his corpse to roll out onto the ground. It was truly a Kodak moment. Another evil man who did incredible harm to the world.

I remember when Komeni (sp) of Iran died years ago and the crowd was carrying his body to burial on a stretcher....and it rolled off.

[couldn't help but laugh]

First thought this morning was kind of hoping to see Arafat being carried and rolling off ....

Looks like Yassir is going to get the dignified funeral he so richly deserves (sarcasm). Looks like its going to be a bloody end to a bloody life.

Crowd apparently overran barriers and filtered into the plaza area when the helicopter is supposed to land.

Area was supposed to stay open so dignitaries could come in, but the crowd has made it impossible for the dignitaries to come into the plaza.

News-readers are saying the Pali/Israeli officials are apprehensive that the crowd might try to take the coffin and carry it to Jerusalem for burial rather than to Arafat's compound where a grave has been prepared.

Madeline Albright just showed up on CNN. [It's too early in the morning to have to see or listen to her.] But I digress.....

Pali crowd are yelling and calling Arafat a martyr [even though he died in a hospital].

Copter coming into view now.

ok going a long way for this one... back when khomeni had his funeral...and got dumped out of his coffin...

David Letterman had his prop guys make one of those little games like kids have... mazes with a little bb inside etc... anyway, he made a "put the ayatollah back in the coffin" game. complete with mourners, coffin and ayatollah (little plastic sillouettes)

May God forgive me for saying this but, one could only hope. They are animals in my book. All those bullets have to come down somewhere, don't they? I just don't understand these "people" and now I'm more convinced that I don't want to...

Chopper is on the ground. Pali crowd all around it now.





They don't have room to open the door and bring the body out because of the crowd. They need something like a 50-foot clearance.

CNN reporter Michael Holmes who is there, says they only have to get the body about 100-150 feet to the burial place. Good luck!
