Yasser Arafat

So ... what did he die from? Ahem. Was it really what some people said? If so, what kind of ... partners did he have? European model-types?

Only his beard knows for sure, and she's still living the high life in Paris last I heard.

I heard he like them young but he also like them male, period.

He died from what you're being an ass about. Don't be silly just because the PLO and its successors can't deal with the truth, for obvious reasons. We don't share their PR concerns.

I know people who work for the Romanian Orthodox Church and they confirm that Arafat did like his young Romanian boys when he often visited Bucharest. It is said that he did indeed die of Aids. His cunt wife is living in Paris with all of that stolen money. You would think that she would pay a visit to Gaza, but she'd probably be hung. Safer on the Champs Elysee.

Where does it say he was worth that much? I don't doubt it but I was wondering where you are getting that number.

I remember hearing that Arafat was gay before he died. I'm sure as much as he was watched by different governments, that there is a lot of footage that could be released or at least pictures. I feel sorry for those boys.

r32 wikipedia:

"However in 2003, a team of American accountants%E2%80%93hired by Arafat's own finance ministry%E2%80%93began examining Arafat's finances; this team reached a different conclusion. The team claimed that part of the Palestinian leader's wealth was in a secret portfolio worth close to $1 billion, with investments in companies like a Coca-Cola bottling plant in Ramallah, a Tunisian cell phone company and venture capital funds in the US and the Cayman Islands. The head of the investigation stated that "although the money for the portfolio came from public funds like Palestinian taxes, virtually none of it was used for the Palestinian people; it was all controlled by Arafat. And none of these dealings were made public."[104] An investigation conducted by the General Accounting Office reported that Arafat and the PLO held over $10 billion in assets even at the time when he was publicly claiming bankruptcy."

R36, if you had a video like that, would you release it and live the rest of your life in hiding with some if not all your relatives murdered?

They're going to exhume his body. I heard at the time rumors that it was HIV/AIDS or even poison.

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Criminal investigators from France will exhume Yasser Arafat's remains next month to try to find out how the Palestinian leader died, a French official said Tuesday.

The official said the team from France will arrive sometime between Nov. 24 and Nov. 26 in the West bank city of Ramallah.

French to exhume Arafat's body 8 years later to determine cause of death

October 30, 2012 at 11:59 AM

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Criminal investigators from France will exhume Yasser Arafat's remains next month to try to find out how the Palestinian leader died, a French official said Tuesday.

The official said the team from France will arrive sometime between Nov. 24 and Nov. 26 in the West bank city of Ramallah.

Palestinian authorities confirmed the timetable and said a separate Swiss investigative team would also arrive in Ramallah at the same time. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

However, Darcy Christen, a spokeswoman for Switzerland's Institute of Radiation Physics that is expected to conduct the autopsy for the Swiss team, said no date has been confirmed yet.

The push to re-examine circumstances surrounding Arafat's November 2004 death came after a Swiss lab recently discovered traces of polonium-210, a deadly radioactive isotope, on clothes said to be his.

The discovery revived suspicions of poisoning. The immediate cause of Arafat's death was a stroke, but the underlying source of an illness he suffered in his final weeks has never been clear.

Investigators from France and Switzerland are to conduct parallel probes into Arafat's death, acting separately on behalf of Arafat's widow Suha Arafat and the Palestinian Authority, who each had misgivings about the other's investigation. Suha Arafat formally asked for a French investigation into his death this summer.

While their probes are separate, the French and the Swiss are to visit the grave together and will only be allowed one chance to draw samples, according to Palestinian officials.

Earlier in October, the Palestinians said the process of digging out Arafat's remains will be conducted privately.

But keeping the event a secret will likely be a challenge since Arafat lies in a giant mausoleum outside government headquarters in a central area of Ramallah.

Oh, bullshit. The reported symptoms didn't match polonium poisoning. The Palestinians 1) can't abide public statements about Arafat's homosexuality and speculation about possible AIDS and 2) are still trying to blame everything on Israel.

[quote]The Swiss laboratory that examined Arafat's personal effects, at the request of Suha Arafat and Al Jazeera, verified via DNA testing that the items belonged to Arafat, according to spokesman Darcy Christen.

[quote]However, Christen underscores, "We have never said there was Polonium poisoning. Yes, we found Polonium 210 in more elevated levels than what one might have expected, but the clinical description of Chairman Arafat's symptoms prior to his death is not compatible with Polonium poisoning."

by Anonymousreply 6310/31/2012

AIDS kills your immune system so that a simple cold (anybody with a functioning immune system could easily survive) can kill you. That's why it's called an AIDS related death.

Someone like Arafat surely was able to get the best HIV medication (even the ones not yet approved and yet showing great results keeping HIV at bay) there is. Either he did get poisoned (one man's HIV drug cocktail could be another HIV positive man's poison) or he was killed in another way.

by Anonymousreply 6410/31/2012

For what it's worth, I was once told by an employer, born in the Mid-East, that child sexual molestation was commonly known to occur among the Mullahs. The powerful would pay off the poor family of a very young boy. He explained that that's one of the reasons there's such a taboo against homosexuality. There's no understanding of the distinction between adult/child same sex and male/male adult consensual sex. He also concurred that many of the suicide bombers are gay, because they're passively trying to fit into a society that hates them, and sadly they see no purpose in living. Remember the promise of honor after death and 50 young virgins in the afterlife? Supposedly that's how the young men would redeem themselves. Ironically the training to be a suicide bomber is very homoerotic. In sum it depends how powerful you are in the Muslim world what happens to you if you are gay.

The Catholic Church has covered up some truly hateful crimes but I find that asking gay males to kill themselves and other innocent people in the name of god, who looks upon them with disgust because they are gay as the most deplorable of all.

by Anonymousreply 6910/31/2012

r69 is it really more deplorable than telling people, repeatedly, that being gay is a disorder, end of discussion? That is the catholic church position.

Meanwhile the whole organization is run by closet cases and pedophiles and their protectors.

The man was in his 70s. He led a difficult, high-stress life. Why is it so hard to believe he got sick and died of a stroke?

by Anonymousreply 7110/31/2012

Because in the last few months of his life he dropped a lot of weight and wasted away and died.

If he'd had a stroke, they'd still be propping him up. Strokes are survivable, even with no treatment/intervention.

He was a fascinating man. Several years ago, I was at a meeting that included some high ranking military officers. During a break, Arafat's name came up and that began a discussion of his military tactics and his politics. Until then, I had never paid much attention to Yasser Arafat, his troops, and the Bekaa Valley.

It will be interesting to see what is turned up from this investigation.

by Anonymousreply 7911/26/2012

It doesn't matter what they find out. The Palestinians have already made their mind up that he was poisoned by Israel and nothing will convince them otherwise.

This is why Arabs are so backwards. They are taught false history and hold worthless degrees. Did you know about 90% of all university degrees in Saudi Arabia are in Islamic studies? This is why they have to import educated people from around the world to do their jobs.

It's a shame that Saudi Arabia has one the highest college graduation rates, but the degrees are worthless.

Of course you 'mos will all consdier this FACT racist but if you replace Islam with Christianity it would be OK. Since you 'mos are only against white, straight Christians.
