Report: Arafat tested for poisoning
Paris, France, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Paris doctors ran tests on Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat to determine if his sudden decline in health last week was from poisoning, the Sun reports.
While the doctors said they would not release their findings until Wednesday, Arafat spokesman Imad Shakur said the 75-year-old's "condition is quite serious," and said the French medical team has not ruled out leukemia.
An article in Time magazine Monday cites one of his doctors as saying Arafat appears to have cancer of the digestive tract. But Palestinian officials in Paris said the current prevailing theory is that he is suffering from some kind of viral infection.
Arafat met Sunday for the first time with Shakur and other Palestinian officials who accompanied him to Paris.
"Even if he returns, and I hope that he will, he will not be the same Arafat, not for us, not for Israel, not even for himself," said Shakur. "(He is) an old, sick man, who has different needs.">>

Obviously, Karl Rove poisened him.
If he had I would buy him a drink.
Oh the whole thing is a scam, he aint sick, this is how he goit out of his compound.
Poisoning, lekemia, cancer of the stomach, viaral infection.
Wow I am impressed with teh new French medical team. They have this thing nailed down for sure.
If Arafat was poisoned, it's all because of Halliburton. /sarcasm
If that was his plan, it was DUMB because now he will never be allowed back.
A "viral infection," eh? Is that simply the politically correct term for AIDS?
Bill Clinton's cigars.
It's Bush's fault!
Poisoning sounds most plausible to me. That's why he was willing to leave his compound. He may have known that someone on the inside was poisoning him.
It's Bush's fault!
Sharon stated this weekend that he will allow Greasy Ringo to come back, as promised.
Of course, that is the most logical thing. I can't explain why a 75 year old man would have medical problems unless he's been poisoned.
But it will be a smart plan (from HIS POV) if Israel is attacked now that he isn't there... before he left - noone would hit Israel on a "grand" scale because he was sitting in the middle of it.
I'm praying for Israel.
Okay... this made me FINALLY say it. "I question the timing of this." Why Wednesday?
