Israeli tanks are attacking Arafat’s

tanks are attacking Arafat’s compound.

Update: Lair, in a private email, casually tossed off the following assessment which bears reprinting (with his kind permission):

“I suppose I’ll just have to salute Arafat’s impending demise with a shot of tequila. Just as the Palestinians celebrated the World Trade Center deaths with candy, then I will acknowledge that one evil man’s death with giving treats to the cats and remembering all of the innocents on both sides lost to his bloody reign, and I shall pray for those who have yet to die for those tyrants who would take his place until those that would support them are either crushed by their own errors or made to see the light of reason.”

Amen, brother.
