Terrorfat Dead

Channel 2 here in Israel have reported that Terrorfat has died.

Update: Channel 2 reported that he is clinically dead. There are no brain waves, but the doctors are keeping him on life support. The Israeli commentators surmise that they will only turn off the machine when it is politically convenient to do so.

6:45PM: PLO Arab PM Qureia denies Terrorfat has died. I am inclined not to believe him.

6:50PM: His death has been “confirmed” by the Luxembourg Prime Minister. But the French hospital spokesman says that his medical situation is “complex”, and that he is not dead. (This fits in with the previously mentioned theory of the Israeli television commentators – that the charade of him being alive will end at a “politically convenient” time).

7:45PM: President Bush reportedly said “God bless his soul”, when he heard the initial reports of his death. I am in shock if this is the case (Hat tip: Harry).

10:00PM: Two hours have passed since my last update. Nothing seems to have changed. i.e Terrorfat is still dead, and the PA and French are still trying to figure out when to break the news.

10:10PM: How is this for eerie? Yitzhak Rabin also died (was killed) on this very day in 1995.

12:00PM:  Reuters report that PLO Arab political sources say that Terrorfat would probably be buried in the Gaza Strip. I somehow doubt that the PLO Arabs are going to give up on the idea of a Temple Mount burial (a possibility which PM Sharon has precluded).
