Israel Likely Killed Arafat
Credible evidence indicates Israel killed Arafat.
by Stephen Lendman
Credible information on Arafat's death surfaced years ago. It wasn't natural. Evidence suggests he was assassinated. Israel most likely was responsible. More on that below.
Al Jazeera provided new information. On July 4, it headlined "Arafat's widow (Suha) calls to exhume his body," saying:
"A nine-month investigation suggests that the late Palestinian leader may have been poisoned with polonium."
"Eight years after his death, it remains a mystery exactly what killed the longtime Palestinian leader."
"Tests conducted in Paris found no obvious traces of poison in Arafat's system. Rumors abound about what might have killed him -- cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, even allegations that he was infected with HIV."
"A nine-month investigation by Al Jazeera has revealed that none of those rumors were true: Arafat was in good health until he suddenly fell ill on October 12, 2004."
