I guess HIV is also called "poison" now? Interesting how Chirac and the others would rather the average Arab believe the lie that Arafat was poisoned by Jews and not tell the truth that he died from AIDs. Are they afraid the extremely homophobic Arabs would riot and murder upon discovering their precious leader liked boys? Yes, because as every Arab knows, there is NO homosexuality in the morally upstanding Arab world ... Hey Chirac ... respect the Arabs enough to tell them the truth. Tell them how he died - especially now since we all know if it were the Jews, you'd be announcing that from loudspeakers in the Square so it must be AIDs. And while we're at it, lets all hear how much money he stole from his own people. Let the Palestinians know who's responsible for the wasted decades of misery thanks to this scoundrel.
