I doubt it. If he did indeed have AIDS, which I don't see why we should necessarily completely rule out, there's no way this will ever be disclosed in public, considering the whole social/political/religious environment he was in.

it is sad and telling that AIDS is so directly linked with homosexuality in that article.

the plausability of that link is likely very dependant on culture, but still...

It is unfortunate that they are linking AIDS and homosexuality in the article. It's the whole deal about a good sex story selling. That seems to be true all over the world, not just in our hedonistic society.

Bono convinced Jesse Helms that AIDS is NOT a "gay plague", if only the rest of the world could understand that too.

Ya, I don't think the article is implying this, just that is what the islamic community would think,

Obviously there are some geographic areas where it is still a gay thing, but world wide, it's definitely a hetero thing.

HIV isn't solely spread through sexual contact, so it's neither a 'gay thing' or a 'hetero thing'. It's a devastating virus with huge amount of stigma attached to it.

Back on topic, Arafat was 75 years old. Isn't it possible he simply died of natural causes?

The Gay Devil is demised!

It is widely believed in Arabic Gay groups and GLBT organizations that Arraphat -- a Gay homophobe like former fellow Gay homphobe hypocrite F.B.I. Director J. Edgar Hoover -- did, in fact, have AIDS. Listen, his own wife Su-Ha wisely didn't even see him in four (4) years!!!! much less do the "wild thing" w/ it. So, Arraphat must have been doin' something (ugly and disgusting as he wuz).

Anyway, there's bad in every group and, at best, Arraphat was bi!

Actually, I don't give a damn what Arafat's sexual preference was. I care about his political stuff. Sexual preference, to me, is not a major determinant in the grand scheme of things.

I don't think calling it a "gay plague" is right, because many straight people are also responsible for the spread of the disease. I just hope that our country will never have the nightmare of being hit with it as hard as Africa is right now.
