Arab heads of state meet on Sept. 27, 1970, at the Nile Hilton in Cairo to put an end to the civil war in Jordan between Palestinians and the government of King Hussein. From left to right: Libyan leader Moammer Gadhafi, PLO chief Yasser Arafat, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, and King Hussein of Jordan. Palestinian and Israeli officials steeled themselves on November 4, 2004 for the possible death of the veteran Palestinian leader as Arafat lay critically ill in a Paris hospital. While Palestinian prime minister Ahmed Qorei tried to play down in public the seriousness of Arafat's condition, French doctors and Palestinian officials privately acknowledged that the man who has led the nationalist struggle for some 40 years was critically ill.
