Israeli television says he is intensive care in Paris hospital
A million Israelis received an answer to their prayers today. It seems Yasser Arafat is going to die a slow painful death from some unnamed aliment. It could be cancer, a viral infection, leukemia, or it could even be aids. In any case, Arafat’s days are numbered and the world seems pretty upbeat concerning the news of his pending death.
The Aids question brings up speculation that Arafat is gay or perhaps even bisexual. I’ve seen the rumor before, it centers on claims made by Ion Pacepa, who was deputy chief of Romanian foreign intelligence under the Ceaucescu regime, he claims to have taped Arafat in orgies with his male body guards. Could Arafat be gay? Time will tell.
There are various pools floating around where one can choose the day Arafat dies. LFG has a pool and a very entertaining discussion group where the various twists and turns of Arafat’s march toward death are discussed.
BTW - My money is on November 11th.
