A hospital spokesman ‘said there would be no details (released) about the cause of Arafat’s death because of French privacy laws’. Why would Arabs, with cooperation of the Arafat family, need to invoke French privacy laws? Dr. Arafat (half brother) said that he met French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier on the day of his brother’s death and discussed the issue with him: “He told me it is not in the interest of France or our (PA) interest to disclose the cause of his death. Holding any party criminally responsible for his death will create political trouble”. Who will be in political trouble? Surely, if the trouble was meant for Israel the documents would be revealed immediately!
“The full medical report of President Arafat is a historical document for the Palestinian people,” said Hassan Abu Libdeh, the PA cabinet secretary. “We will get the report and the Palestinian Authority will take the necessary decisions including informing the Palestinian people about the full details of the report”. Yasser Arafat’s nephew, Nasser al-Kidwa, obtained the medical records many weeks’ ago. The PA can’t blame the ‘evil widow’ for being silent any more! How much do they pay her for silence?
Why has Arafat’s nephew, who was so eager to tell the truth about Arafat’s death, suddenly became mute and evasive? He had plenty of time to study the official French report of his uncle’s death. The only statement he has made, so far, is that his uncle had died of “unnatural” causes, implying Israel had poisoned Arafat. AIDS is an “unnatural” cause of death too!
The toxicology tests were conducted during Arafat’s two-week stay in a French hospital but “no poisons known to doctors were found.” PA Foreign Minister Nabil Shaath has said: “We know what it is not. It is not malignancy or cancer anywhere in his body.” But, uncharacteristically for modern medical practice, no autopsy was conducted.
Years ago, Oriana Fallaci, an Arab sympathizer at the time, reported that Arafat’s headquarters in Tunis had a number of blonde German young men running around. She found that not only Arafat was homosexual, but that it was well known fact in his intimate circle. Later, as the rumors gathered force, Arafat arranged his pseudo marriage to his gold digging ‘wife’. The CIA had known about the AIDS for some time and encouraged Israel not to assassinate him.
This saga reminds me the rumors about the death of another legend – the Great Communist leader Lenin. When I was living in the Soviet Union, I heard whispers about the real cause of his death. Only recently, the team of German doctors reviewed the notes of Lenin’s doctors and they officially confirmed the rumors – ‘the great leader of the Socialist revolution’ died from syphilis. For political reasons, this information, as well as, the possible cause of Arafat’s death has not been covered by international press!
I deliberately put a question mark at the end of the title of this article. It is not about Arafat’s homosexuality, it is about lack of political integrity! Only the release of the official French doctors’ report will stop to the rumors about Arafat death! Why is this information still concealed?
