Always knew there'd be a good use for that song by Steam

There's a delicious bit of schadenfreude in Arafat's (Y''S) current location, a French military hospital in Clamart. As anyone who read "The Day Of The Jackal" can tell you, the book opens with the execution of a French OAS operative who masterminded an assassination attempt on DeGaulle at a crossroads in Clamart. The entire raison d'etre of the OAS was of course Algerie Francais, wanting to have a bit of lebensraum as well as cheap, docile labor, but of course Ben Bella, a spiritual predecessor of Arafat (Y''S) if there ever was one didn't quite see eye to eye with that outlook.
