Suha Arafat Loses It
RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - Yasser Arafat’s wife said in an emotional television interview on Monday that a planned visit by Palestinian leaders to her husband in a Paris hospital was aimed at “burying (him) alive.”
“I appeal to you to be aware of the scope of the conspiracy. They are trying to bury Abu Ammar (Arafat) alive,” Suha Arafat said on al-Jazeera satellite television. She was referring to plans by Arafat’s deputy, Mahmoud Abbas, Prime Minister Ahmed Qurie and Foreign Minister Nabil Shaath, to fly to Paris later in the day.
Israeli media reported earlier it was likely Arafat, hospitalized in a French military hospital on Oct. 29, would be taken off any life-support machines during the high-level visit.
Suha can feel all that money slipping away, out of her grasp, and she isn’t happy.
