Damn CNN's website for requesting payment to show the official announcement. (edited by SOK on 11.11.04 0025)

AIM: # 5 Posted on 11.11.04 0209.48 Reposted on: 11.11.11 0213.48 We do not have to think he was a wonderful person, yet can still not be happy at his death. There's this balance here. For me, his death means the end of the possibility he could be transformed into a loving man, which I believe God can do to all people. But I'm odd like that.

Originally posted by Pool-Boy He was an evil son of a bitch, and I am glad he is dead. EDIT: Wow, your edits somehow made your post even stupider. Think I'll just delete it and save us all some grief (edited by CRZ on 11.11.04 0213)

Arafat wasn't a great leader, and in fact he harmed his own people by being so conciliatory with the Zionists for no real reward. Hamas will have a field day with this.

Didn't last long. (edited by Net Hack Slasher on 19.11.04 0346)
