Was Yasser Arafat killed by poisoning?


Palestinian officials raised the prospect of exhuming Yasser Arafat’s body yesterday after a Swiss laboratory said it had discovered an “unexplained” level of the radioactive element polonium on personal belongings of the late President.

The discovery during a nine-month investigation by the Arab satellite channel Al-Jazeera could prove the most plausible evidence yet to fuel long-standing but uncorroborated rumours among many Palestinians that Yasser Arafat was poisoned.

The potentially deadly element – the same one blamed for the 2006 death in London of the former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko – was discovered among personal effects, including clothes and a toothbrush, given to the network by Suha Arafat, the late Palestinian leader’s widow.

Mrs Arafat, who refused to allow an autopsy when her husband died in a Paris hospital in November 2004, said yesterday she would be asking for an exhumation, telling Al-Jazeera: “We must go further and exhume Yasser Arafat’s body to reveal the truth to the Muslim and Arab world.”

  1. It was very obvious thet he was poisoned!!!
    The CIA controlled by Mossad could easily have done this, as well as many other "assasinations"!!!
    But even If this is proved beyond doubt, there will be no justice brought to the criminals!!!
    Have we ever seen anyone being prosecuted at the ICC for The Sabra & Shatila Massacres? Or Gazza War crimes?
    We must realise that these ICC's, UN's, Interpol are all Tools for these people to intimidate those who do not conform to their Agenda!!!
    Wake Up People!!!
