More Arafat AIDS rumors. I mentioned this the other day. The story today again mentioned the KGB evidence linking Arafat to homosexual activities, along with some really homophobic quotes from the a 1987 book by Lt.-Gen. Ion Pacepa. At least today’s article tries to back the charge up with the mounting medical evidence.
Arafat has lost a considerable amount of body weight. Hopital d’Instruction des Armees de Percy, southwest of Paris, is known to have some of France’s best HIV/AIDS doctors. Other medical experts note that Arafat’s activities in recent weeks and months suggest the dementia that accompanies late-stage AIDS.
Medical authorities not connected directly to his case are suggesting that he may have HIV/AIDS. One doctor reported to an Israel Insider source that his suspicions have been growing for more than a year.
“I began to see tell tale signs of kaposis sarcoma. His Parkinsonian tremor was more than just a Parkinsonian tremor and he was also showing signs of weakness. The rumor about homosexuality/bisexuality has been around for decades. So I put two and two together when they started talking about his health over a year ago. The talk of a mysterious illness in this day and age should be a tip-off. He has some of the best physicians in the world attending to him. He can be diagnosed clinically, without perfoming any tests. All the doctors surrounding him know what he has. All this cloak and dagger about tests is a ruse. They understand the implications of divulging that he has HIV. If I were Suha I would be getting a little concerned.”
If Arafat has AIDS, that would also explain Suha’s reticence to allow the release of significant information about Arafat’s condition, and the almost ludicrously tight-lipped reports of the French hospital spokesman, and the refusal of anyone connected with Arafat to hold a press conference in recent days.
If he does have AIDS, those French doctors aren’t going to say it.
