Cause of Arafat death by AIDS 'unknown' - speculation mentions bad dinner in Ramallah or 'infection'

September 8, 2005

Joseph Farah of WND cites a book written by a former Romanian intelligience agent who was following Arafat

" In Red Horizons" by Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, the former head of Romanian intelligence. H... relates a conversation with Constantin Munteaunu, a general assigned to teach Arafat and the Palestinian Liberation Organization operations in deception and influence designed to fool the West into granting the organization recognition.

"I just called the microphone monitoring center to ask about the 'Fedayee,'" Arafat's code name, explained Munteaunu. "After the meeting with the Comrade, he went directly to the guest house and had dinner. At this very moment, the 'Fedayee' is in his bedroom making love to his bodyguard. The one I knew was his latest lover. He's playing tiger again. The officer monitoring his microphones connected me live with the bedroom, and the squawling almost broke my eardrums. Arafat was roaring like a tiger, and his lover yelping like a hyena." http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=34717

Arafat was known to have had a proclivity for Germanic types and always hired young blonde bodyguards. This would explain his abject terror at being offered a human shield in the form of Gretta van Duisenberg the wife of the now deceased World Bank president, Wim, which was recounted in "Human Shield in Ramallah".


Arafat and Duisenberg

"...Suddenly the cot creaks and shakes and he feels the blankets being ripped from him.

Oh, Allah, help me, thinks Arafat, while Gretta's thighs hold him in their merciless grip.

This is the most horrific ordeal of my life. This is far worse then any Israeli retaliatory strike..." http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/8

"...According to Papacea and other authors, it was widely believed that he was a homosexual. Among other evidence, the Romanians claim they took survelliance videos of Arafat engaged in orgies with his male bodyguards.

Moveover, internationally famous Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci, who has interviewed many foreign leaders including Arafat, revealed with evident disgust in a 1981 Playboy interview that Arafat had a marked preference for young boys. Perhaps this is the blackmail Arafat's wife, Sufa, with whom
he hadn't lived for years, used to garner herself a multi-million-dollar annual "death benefit." The proceeds of course, flow from his billions in ill-gotten gains.

Many speculate that the cause of his death was AIDS. Arafat's symptoms included blotchy skin, dementia, a depressed immune system and massive weight loss. The only other disease indicated by these symptoms, leukemia, was ruled out. The only ones who can release Arafat's medical records are his family, and they aren't talking.

The official line went from the ludicrous "he was poisoned by the Israelis" to the absurd: "A poor diet and gastrointestinal complications due to his long confinement in PLO headquarters imposed by the Israelis caused his health to deteriorate." Of course, it was the Israelis fault, one way or the other.

I vote AIDS.

Cause of Arafat death unknown


Cause of Arafat death 'unknown'

Yasser Arafat Many Palestinians believe Arafat was poisoned
Medical records of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat appear to show that doctors could not determine the underlying cause of his death.

The records, obtained by the New York Times newspaper, say that Arafat died from a stroke that stemmed from an unknown condition.

But Israeli newspaper Haaretz says the records point to him dying from poisoning, Aids or an infection.

Yasser Arafat died on 11 November 2004 at a French military hospital.

Both newspapers say the records, have been withheld by senior Palestinian officials and Mr Arafat's widow until now, show that doctors could not agree on the cause of the 75-year-old's death.

Conflicting reports

The New York Times says the records show that it was highly unlikely that Mr Arafat died from poisoning or Aids.

"There are three possible causes of death: infection from a germ that poisoned the blood, Aids or poisoning
Israeli author Avi Isacharov
It reported that the actual infection that led to the stroke that caused late Palestinian leaders death was still a mystery.

The Haaretz report cites an Israeli Aids experts as saying that many of Mr Arafat's symptoms were typical of the disease.

Another senior Israeli doctor quoted by Haaretz describes the death as "a classic case of food poisoning."


Mr Arafat's medical records are set to be published in an Israeli book next week.

"There are three possible causes of death: infection from a germ that poisoned the blood, Aids or poisoning from a dinner at his Ramallah headquarters on October 12, 2004," Avi Isacharov, one of the book's authors, told the AFP news agency.

Speculation on the cause of Arafat's death has continued with many Palestinians believing that he was poisoned by Israel.

Yasser Arafat's nephew, Palestinian Foreign Minister Nasser al-Kidwa, has said the late Palestinian leader's medical file does not allay suspicions that he may have died of "unnatural causes".

But senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat said the French doctors should publish their report in full to put an end to the rumours.
