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.
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.
