Did Arafat Die from AIDS Related Illness

Look, he's dead. He basically died Thurday. The man is being kept on artificial support until the PA and his 'wife' can figure out what to do with the body. DEBKAfile reports that funeral arrangements are very delicate. France wants the whole thing resolved in the next few days but Egypt and Jordan don't want the body. What to do? What to do?

Meanwhile the question remains: what did he die from? Not leukemia or another form of cancer. It's certainly not a stomach virus as reported when he was first ill. says that it could have been AIDS. Low platelet count, loss of body weight, weakness, wasting.

Of course, we'll never know.
