Time is reporting that Arafat has stomach cancer. How absolutely biblical:

21: And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
22: And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
23: And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
Acts 12:21-23

See also Josephus on the death of the first Herod, and the death of the second, called Agrippa.
