David Frum's Diary (Does Arafat have AIDS?)
NRO.com ^ | 10-29-04 | David Frum

Posted on 10/29/2004 11:24:48 AM PDT by veronica

Another Question

Speaking of media bias, here’s a question you won’t hear in our big papers or on network TV: Does Yasser Arafat have AIDS?

We know he has a blood disease that is depressing his immune system. We know that he has suddenly dropped considerable weight – possibly as much as 1/3 of all his body weight. We know that he is suffering intermittent mental dysfunction. What does this sound like?

Former Romanian intelligence chief Ion Pacepa tells in his very interesting memoirs that the Ceaucescu regime taped Arafat’s orgies with his body guards. If true, Arafat would a great deal to conceal from his people and his murderously anti-homosexual supporters in the Islamic world.

Before airlifting Arafat to Paris, French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier promised to “stand by” him. Was that why Arafat chose to be treated in France rather in any of the fraternal Arab countries that supposedly support his movement – because he could trust the French to protect his intimate secrets?

Even if true, the French will cover for him and put something else on his death cert, the Palis will kill anyone of his butt-buddies who talks, John Kerry won't out him as he did Mary Cheney, etc.

According to reports, Arafat has the exact opposite of AIDS. An overactive immune system, not a depressed one. His immune system is attacking his own body, as with Lupus or a long list of autoimmune disorders.

Would explain why he's kept his wife on a different continent for years. Could also explain why the Mossad has allowed him to live this long.

It is rumored that he and Bill Clinton exchanged bodily fluids during a meeting at the White House.

Lies, all lies. He's got aids and he's trying to hide it. That's why his wife has been living in Paris all this time. He didn't want her around while the barebackers from San Fran were in town.

I heard that he had has a problem with his platelets levels. This can be caused by any number of types of neoplasms, a number of them can be AIDS related.

The reason Arafat was shipped from Egypt (where he was a small time businessman) to the jordanian occupied west bank was because he was caught flagrente delecto in a homosexual act. He was given the choice: either be killed for impurity, or go be the paymaster for a terrorist gang.

He is 75. That is really really old for someone who has aids. In the US average age of death for male homosexuals is 42. If aids is involved it drops to 37.

Of course he does get to be a bit more picky than the average US homosexual.

Having said that, homosexuality is different in different countries. The unspeakable vice of the ancient greeks was popular because, like in modern muslim countries, women were usually uneducated brood mares, who spent their time either pregnant or nursing, and died young in childbirth. One Roman woman died at age 18 having already had 6 children. (although Muhummed married a 6 year old, he didnt have relations with her till she was 9. By comparison, one of the wives of Julius Caesar was married when she was 11.) Accordingly women were married young, ridden hot and put away wet. High rates of infant mortality meant that women needed to pump out many children before they died, and that was nearly their only influence.

With lower birth rates, women need have fewer children. With better health care, education is a suitable investment for women. With education, one can actually have an intellectual relationship with a woman. The whole of society changes.

Women do have a physically smaller brain than men. To compensate for that, their brains are organized differently, and they tend to obsess about things, thus thinking about the problem longer, and from more different angles. This makes a relationship with a woman very complex and interesting for a normal man.

Sounds more like (and has been tentatively diagnosed as) leukemia. Frankly, buggery is the least of Arafat's sins.

...and put something else on his death cert

That's not exactly covering. They'll just generalize the cause.

Done all the time, even in the US and Canada. At least for non-suspicious/non-unexpected deaths.

A Nobel Peace Prize winner with Aids? It must have been those blood transfusions that he recieved after he injured him himself opening wine bottles at his French Chalet.

Feeling daring, aren't we! :>) I just hope that you have your full nuclear asbestos flame suit on, and that you have several layers of Kevlar underneath.

It was interesting to watch the recent video of him in the wheelchair holding hands with his supporters. At on point, he leaned over, apparently to kiss the hand of one of the supporters, and that person quickly pulled his hand away. The video clip ended shortly thereafter.

Interesting you mention he has AIDS. Last night on Fox News they showed a video of him in his compound surrounded by his merry men. He was holding hands with one supporter and he went to pull the hand up toward his mouth and the other fellow pulled his hand down before it reached Arafat's lips. HMMMMMM!

as with Lupus or a long list of autoimmune disorders

Then it must not have been treated at all. Quite a few of the autoimmune reponse diseases are treatable with low doses of chemotherapy drugs (like methotrexate) or with the new TNF suppresor drugs like Enbrel or Remicade. Both are pretty successful with lupus.

If he has ALS, all of what I said above doesn't apply.

I'm making the popcorn now. This could be entertaining for awhile if it gets picked up on.

Don't see anything controversial here. Women have smaller feet than men, smaller heads and smaller brains.

Doesn't make them less intelligent, just different. Who's smarter, Bill or Hillary?

Who's more evil, now there is a good question.

If brain size made you smarter, this guy would have invented cold fusion by now.

Of course I'm assuming that his huge melon is filed with brains, I could be wrong.

Some things you just don't say without expecting trouble, no matter how true they may be. Examples:

1) My mother made the same thing, only it tasted better;

2) Yes, honey, that dress DOES make you look fat; and

3) Women's brains are smaller than men's brains.

He didn't say men were smarter than women, only that men had larger brains.

Don't turn this into an uproar like the one that occurred after a D.C. official said the word "niggardly", which means stingy, and had to resign because some idiots thought it had something to do with the N-word.

Hey, it is all a tongue-in-cheek JOKE. Relax. The election will be over in a few days (or weeks, depending on the lawyers).
