"It‘s among the most dangerous of all types of strokes," with half of victims dying within a month, said Dr. Robert A. Felberg, a neurologist who directs the stroke program at Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans.
You know what the Israeli rightwingers used to say about Arafat -- that peace would have to wait until he died? Well, I guess that kinda cuts both ways, don't it?!
I, for one, think that for Sharon to die now would be fitting, and arguably a death with far more glory than the man deserves. Considering the alternative of serious, longterm brain damage, we should perhaps consider Sharon's family, and wish for a quick, painless death.
Perhaps he and Arafat can spend the afterlife together, in whatever way that the powers that be find most appropriate. Insha'Allah.
Humanity doesn't need more phony peacemakers with blood on their hands. Let's give someone else a chance!
