Palestinian Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat Awaiting Lung Transplant in Israel

The Palestinian Authority’s (PA) top negotiator, Saeb Erekat, is reportedly suffering from a serious lung disease and is awaiting a lung transplant in Israel.

Erekat, 62, was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis a year ago and had been on medications to treat the disease. But his medications have become ineffective in treating his condition, which has worsened, and his Israeli doctors have decided that the PA official needs to have a lung transplant to survive.

While he is waiting for a transplant, Erekat, who also serves as the secretary-general of the Palestinian Liberation Organization‘s (PLO) executive committee, has significantly reduced his workload and public activity, rarely holding meetings and media interviews, while using an oxygen mask to breathe.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
