Arafat is dead

It's finally over. After a couple of weeks of controversy regarding his health, the Palestinian Authority has formally announced the death of Yasser Arafat.

It's surprising how many people overlook this man with respect to terrorism. I'd say "rest in peace," but it's more like "good riddance."

Update: Glenn Reynolds echos my view.

Update 2: Deacon over at Power Line asks a legitimate question. The sad thing? Talk radio and blogs are likely the only places it will be asked.

Update 3: Dean Esmay is a little more vindictive than I am:

By the way, why are they worried about where to bury him? Why don't they just strap a bunch of bombs to him and throw him out the window? That way he can go to Heaven as a martyr.
Arafat in Heaven? Haha! Good one!

Update 4: Chadster has a recap of what the blogosphere is saying about Arafat's death. He even linked to me!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Yeah, it's not like I have no one to understand me-- at some point or another, everyone goes through a few of the same issues I do, just like you said.
yeah this whole Yasser thing... I'm just not sure what to think about it all.
