More on Arafat's Health

Ash-Sharq al-Awsat is reporting that Yasser Arafat has a tumor in his large intestine, and that it may be cancerous. The situation does appear a bit confused, however, as for obvious his aides don't want to give off signs of weakness to other elements of the PA, terrorist groups, or the world at large. The article states he has been suffering from symptoms such as weight loss, diarrhea, and exhaustion. However, I see little to suggest his life is in immediate peril.
