    I’d rather rely on Wikipedia.com

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasser_Arafat#Illness_and_death

    After reading this article, as far as I can tell, there has been no conclusion about the cause of death. Even the conservative encyclopedia Conservapedia.com says that the cause of death is unknown.

    http://www.conservapedia.com/Yasser_Arafat

    In 2004, Arafat died at the Frech Percy Military Hospital in Clamart, near Paris. The cause of his illness is still unknown.

    Can you provide me with a critical, somewhat unbiased source, that says otherwise.

    Actually, the blogger you're relying on specifically states:

    So, while it may be true...may not. And I'd put it in the same catagory as any other salacious rumor.

    He came to my office in Beirut often in the last part of '81 into '82. He always seemed very masculine and never had any pretty boys around him. I certainly never heard any talk about his homosexuality at that time.

    um...but Rock Hudson was usually surrounded by good looking men. One would think that Arafat could have had is pick of gay palestinian young men... all I am saying is that in the year that I lived in Beirut and saw him frequently...I never saw him with any such men, and I often saw him with his wife.
