Having had a little more time to read the Haaretz story to which our friend Mitamuna provided a link, the following extracts are of interest:"The report mentions dozens of illnesses or bacteria that were tested for, but there is no evidence of an HIV test, or even a mention of a discussion on the matter.....An AIDS expert from one of Israel's major hospitals also says that the report's total disregard for the possibility of AIDS raises some tough questions. Nevertheless, he adds, the possibility that Arafat had contracted AIDS was very small. The expert, who also reviewed the French medical report, says it is unlikely that an illness that continued for some two weeks, with severe diarrhea, vomiting, harm to the digestive system, and the eventual collapse of the blood clotting system, was caused by AIDS.....Another senior Israeli physician who read the report said that based on the symptoms that appeared in Arafat some four hours after he ate dinner on October 12, 2004, about a month before his death, it appears that his death was caused by that meal. "It is a classic case of food poisoning that is taught at medical school," the doctor said.The doctor adds that according to the symptoms described in the report, it appears that Arafat came down with regular food poisoning caused by a bacteria that releases poisons. http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/spages/622564.htmlNo tests for HIV - so how can any report that suggests that the AIDS virus was in his blood be true?Nope - the suggestion that Arafat died of AIDS is black Israeli propaganda, nothing more, designed to blacken his name beyond the grave.They're pitiful.CF
