Yassar Arafat’s illness

It turns out there are people claiming probably Arafat has AIDS.  People have for years claimed he was homosexual.  Interesting twist on things.  That would explain why the French doctors haven’t publically announced his illness.  That would explain why Israel didn’t just put a bullet through his head a long time ago.  What it doesn’t explain is why, if Israel knew he was gay, they didn’t just release the video tapes of his liasons.  In any event it appears he is out of power for good.
