Arafat lede

Here's the lead paragraph that every major newspaper should have published (more or less), but only Stephen Miller of the New York Sun managed to write:

Yasser Arafat, the terrorist leader bent on destroying Israel who insisted he wanted to die a martyr to the Palestinian cause, managed instead to die of natural causes last night at a hospital in Clamart, France. He was 75.
