Arafat, AIDS and Malevolent Narcissism
By James Lewis
Well, the big secret about Yasser Arafat's death is out, thanks to his lifelong comrade-in-terror, Ahmed Jibril. Jibril droolingly revealed that Arafat died of AIDS. According to Mark Steyn, this was
"...pretty much an open secret in diplomatic circles. ... it prompted many knowing chortles among political types I mentioned it to today, along with fond reminiscences about Yasser's corps of hunky blond Scandinavian bodyguards - an odd bunch of chaps to find in Ramallah, but presumably they were doing the jobs Palestinians won't do."
What's most important is that:
(a) Neither the vaunted "news media" nor any governments in the world chose to reveal this open secret to the rest of us, including the Palestinians themselves, who were taken in hook, line and sinker about the true nature of their glorified leader, at the expense of their lives and their children's lives; and
(b) The revelation confirms Arafat's malignant narcissism. Because our hero Yasser was not just gay; he could be as gay as he liked. The problem is that he was a Typhoid Mary, just as much as the 18th century heterosexual sailors who spread syphilis to the world.http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2007/07/arafat_aids_and_malevolent_nar.html
