Surprise! Not...

Can anyone guess why this picture is unrealistic?

Shalom: Arafat wasn’t poisoned

Foreign minister slams reports suggesting Israel may have been behind death of late Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat; reports are baseless, meant to slander Israel, Shalom charges

The time has come to put an end to the conspiracy theories against Israel, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said Thursday following the release of test results suggesting former PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat may have died of AIDS.

Mystery remains

Ten months after Arafat died in a Paris hospital, the cause of death remains shrouded in mystery. The official hospital report written at the time is jealously guarded; only Arafat's widow Suha and senior PLO officials have been allowed access.

Palestinians: he was poisoned

Accoriding to "The Seventh War," Arafat's private physician, Dr. Ashraf al-Kurdi, who was pushed to the sidelines during the last weeks of Arafat's life, said he knows that French doctors found the AIDS virus in Arafat's blood.

Without specifying how he got this information, al-Kurdi said the germs were injected into Arafat in order to cover up signs of intentional poisoning.

Al-Kurdi is not the only Palestinian who believes Arafat was poisoned. Senior PA officials such as Mohammed Dahlan, Jibril Rajoub, and current PA Foreign Minister – and Arafat's nephew - Nasser al-Kidwa have all accused Israel of killing the longtime Palestinian symbol.

Well yeah, that's soooo likely. Especially since everything he every said and stood for was a pile of shit. Lets just face it. The dude was gay, liked little boys (not that I am putting homosexuals and child molesters in the same category), and had AIDS:

Ion Pacepa, who was deputy chief of Romanian foreign intelligence under the Ceaucescu regime and who defected to the West in 1978, says in his memoirs the Romania government bugged Arafat and had recordings of the Arab leader in orgies with his security detail.

Various Israeli security sources have in the past suggested publicly Arafat might be homosexual. They've claimed Arafat's former personal driver – a Mossad double agent – used to find teenage boys to bring back to the PLO leader. His wife, Suha, mostly lived abroad and rarely saw her husband.

Let's see... If Arafat had died of AIDS, they certainly would have made his medical records public, on the other hand, if he had been poisoned by the Israelis, they would surely have tried to keep them secret. Yeah, that makes sense!

Maria, I couldn't care less what Arafat died of.

BTW I won't be visiting here for a while. I'm finally having a real vacation after 2 years. Should be back by the end of the month. Take care.

Come now. Calling him homosexual is an insult to homosexuals.
