CAUSE OF ARAFAT'S DEATH A SECRET ONLY FAMILY CAN REVEAL
PARIS, Nov 11 - The mystery remained over the cause of Yasser Arafat's death Thursday after French military doctors who treated the Palestinian leader said it was private information meant for his family only. "I have no declaration to make on that subject," a spokesman for the French military's medical service, Christian Estripeau, told AFP. "It is not up to the defence forces' health service to reveal information given to the family." The only people in a position to lift the veil on the medical secret are Arafat's family, and above all his wife Suha, who severely restricted the release of her husband's medical information and limited bedside visits to a handful of Palestinian officials since he was airlifted to France on October 29. Officially the 75-year-old Arafat was admitted to the hospital as a result of complications from gastric flu. "Gastric flu" was mentioned in the past to explain his health problems, in particular in 2003, when the British newspaper The Guardian reported that he had been the victim of a mild heart attack. Suggestions that he was suffering from cancer, leukaemia or poisoning were all denied by members of Arafat's immediate circle.

A.I.D.S. or, in French, S.I.D.A.
Heck, they wouldn't even tell us when he died. He's dead. No he's in a coma. He's not dead and not in a coma. He's in a "complex state" but not dead. His condition has remained the same. He's death announcement will be made tomorrow...but until then he's alive, we're sure, maybe.
could it be Syphilis ?
France is one of the few countries that does not require a statement of CAUSE OF DEATH. Another reason, for Arafat to go there.
You left out "he's just sleeping." ;)
This is as close to admitting the real cause as the French will ever do.
(applauding wildly) Yes, that was our reaction as well. That, and a sigh of relief.
Somewhere this week on another Arafat thread there was a long article about his sexual proclivities (bi-sexual) and the long-time rumor that he'd contracted HIV.
Yessir Amafart: Weapon of A$$ Destruction.
Only if he was assisinated, or if he had AIDS (which would be a very big scandal in his part of the world).
He's not dead, he's pining for the fjords.
Satan finally needed his coordinator back to invent new ways to torture souls...
Thank you, thank you very much! (LOL)
I HOPE he STAYS DEAD.
The past two weeks have been back and forth a bit.
(Just wondering if they removed life support though.) hehehe..
And, how can we be sure he died. The French would do anything to protect him. We know he would like a bit more freedom.
We may be duped by the French.
Mrs. Arafat kept him alive until she could get her reportedly 22 mil/year out of him, and then - off with the life support! If true, some deal, huh?
