November 11, 2004

On November 11, 2004, the Palestine Liberation Organization confirmed the death of their former leader, Yasser Arafat under unidentified causes. Mr. Arafat had been confined within his Ramallah compound for two years by the Israeli army, when in late 2004, he mysteriously fell into a coma and died. After investigations by Russian and French investigative teams, it was determined that no foul play was involved. The French said it was perfectly normal for an angry, old man to be suffocated by a pillow in his sleep after refusing to die from all the poison his family had given him. The Russians said there was no proof of that as they were incinerating pillows, bedsheets, mattresses and containers of almondy-smelling powders in the Ramallah compound’s furnaces.
