CAUSE OF ARAFAT'S DEATH A SECRET ONLY FAMILY CAN REVEAL
The Tocqueville Connection ^ | November 11, 2004

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.

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.

France is one of the few countries that does not require a statement of CAUSE OF DEATH. Another reason, for Arafat to go there.

Personally, I don't give a rat's rear end HOW he died. I'm glad he's finally gone.

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.

He knew he was dying, and didn't want the word to get out that he died of AIDS. This is why France was chosen.

Arafag died from AIDS.
I wonder if Suha has it too?

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.

Limbaugh did mention aids and there have been several threads suggesting that.

Only if he was assisinated, or if he had AIDS (which would be a very big scandal in his part of the world).

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?

He's in a "complex state" but not dead.

Think of Arafart as Schrodinger's cat. The cat's state is very complex. It can only be revealed when someone opens the box and looks. The same was true of Arafart. His state only became known when PLO officials barged in. They found him dead.

I'm suspect of that life support and if they've actually removed it yet. (/sarcasm.)

He died at least twelve times in the past few weeks, for crikey's sake.

Coroner: Arafat Died of Tilex Poisoning
scrappleface.com ^ | Scott Ott

Coroner: Arafat Died of Tilex Poisoning by Scott Ott

(2004-11-11) -- The coroner for the Palestinian Authority today announced that former Chairman Yassir Arafat died from "acute Tilex poisoning," and blamed the CIA and Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service.

"Infidel agents infiltrated Chairman Arafat's personal quarters and sprayed his bathtub with Tilex, a deadly toxin to certain lifeforms," said an unnamed spokesman for the coroner. "We believe the bathtub was poisoned up to two years ago, but Chairman Arafat's exposure came only recently, due to his personal hygiene schedule."

The coroner said his report "ensures Mr. Arafat's status as a martyr, which helps to overcome his shameful legacy as the man who signed a peace accord with Israel."

Maybe that's why she demanded so much money. If she dies, their daughter is left alone, and that's her insurance money. I doubt that the deal Suha arranged for herself passes on to the daughter.

The French looked so gallant escorting their hero to the airplane. How dare anyone call them cowardly when they marched with their chins held high. They never looked that proud when they turned the keys to Paris over to the Germans!
