Thanks for posts. But something doesn't seem to ring true here.
"His condition late last week was described as stable, but supporters were said to be preparing to move him to another non-Arab country for an operation to remove the shrapnel."
Why not treat him in Iran? They have fully equiped surgery units with lots of western educated doctors etc.. Besides,
is probably welcome in Iran due to his terrorist affiliations with groups out of Iran.
I think this is mis-information.
This is appearing more and more likely to be the case - Zarqawi was probably never wounded to begin with (or hurt only slightly....non-serious) - Yet, it turned into this larger rouse for any number of reasons.
Iran is a "Non Arab country" they are Persians, not Arabs.
