Stupid's Bad Enough; Don't Be Biased About It 

Look, I really don't want to give much more weight to the "Arafat had AIDS" meme, simply because I think it distracts from all the vile things that he had done over the years, plus I don't really believe it. But Daniel Pipes raises a good point: if the media is going to report on crazy assassination conspiracy theories, it might as well cover another improbable cause of death.

Although I disagree that whether Yasir was HIV+ is "really on the minds of serious people", I would hope that those serious people aren't dwelling over whether this was another Mossad job or just an individual that died a much more peaceful death than he deserved.
