Kofi Annan and Jacques Chirac French-kiss a dead man's butt.

They weep:

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan praised Arafat’s struggle to win international recognition for the Palestinian cause, as he ordered flags to fly at half-mast at the United Nations, even though the Palestinians only have observer status at the world body.

By signing the 1993 Oslo peace accords, Arafat “took a giant step towards the realization of this vision. It is tragic that he did not live to see it fulfilled.”

French President Jacques Chirac visited the Percy military hospital to bid a final farewell to Arafat, pledging that his country would continue to work to achieve a settlement in the Middle East.

“I have come to bow before president Yasser Arafat and pay him a final homage,” he said after the 25-minute visit.
