Arafat would be turning in his grave -- if he had one

This is just unbelievable. Remember the rumors at the end of the summer about Suha's boyfriend? Looks like there might be something to them:
French officials who have been following Yasser Arafat's treatment were astonished to discover that Suha Arafat's constant companion and financial adviser was none other than Pierre Rizk, who headed the intelligence service of the Phalanga during the Lebanese civil war and was in close personal contact with the guerrilla group responsible for the massacre at the Sabra and Shatilla refugee camp in 1982. Rizk has been spotted in or near Percy Hospital in recent days. Since Rizk holds power of attorney for Suha Arafat, French and Palestinian officials have been in constant contact with him over Suha Arafat's financial demands, which she says are designed to ensure the financial future of her and her daughter. The outcome of these contacts is still not clear.
Let's get this clear, though. Suha cheats on Arafat with a man who once won $18m. from Arafat in a lawsuit, and almost toppled the PA -- and he's the one who will effectively determine when Suha feels financially secure enough to pull the plug?????? Jeez.
Incidentally, I'm not sure why French officials were 'astonished' about Rizk. Don't they read Bloghead (or The Jerusalem Post, for that matter)????
