Was Yasir Arafat Poisoned By The Jews?
An analysis of the confidential medical report on Yasir Arafat's death has raised the possibility that the late Palestinian resistance leader was poisoned. The bandit state of Israel has countered with a claim, offered without substantiation of any kind, that Arafat died of AIDS.
Arafat died on November 11, 2004 at a military hospital in Paris. An autopsy was conducted, but its findings have been classified as top secret and even now the report of the findings have not been officially released. The information on the possible poisoning has been leaked to the media, most likely by Arafat's widow Suha, who was finally able to obtain a copy after months of pressuring French authorities.
Suha is also known to have given copies of the report to senior Palestinian officials. From there the report's findings made their way to Israeli journalists Amos Hael and Avi Isacharoff, who published their comments in a major analysis inthe Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, in Hebrew, as well as in a bookcalled "The Seventh War" about the 2000-2004 Palestinian revolt.
The official cause of Arafat's death was given out as a "massive brain hemorrhage." However, the forthcoming article says that "a discussion among a large number of medical experts... shows that it is impossible to pinpoint a cause that will explain the combination of symptoms that led to the death of the patient."
Most senior Palestinian officials, including Mohammed Dahlan and Jibril Rajoub, have said in interviews with the book's authors that they are convinced Arafat was poisoned by Israel. The Palestinians mention Israel's assassination attempt by means of poison on Hamas leader Khaled Meshal in Amman in 1997. According to the officials, Arafat was not sufficiently cautious and could easily have been poisoned, because he would receive candies and medicines from visitors and consume them without medical supervision.
A statement from Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office defined the poison claims as "nonsense," adding that such claims were investigated in the past and found to be false. Prof. Gil Lugassi, president of the Israel Hematologists Association who read the French report, said that th esymptoms described could be typical of AIDS. One anonymous expert, who also reviewed the French medical report, says it is unlikely that an illness that continued for some two weeks, with severe diarrhea, vomiting, harm to the digestive system, and the eventual collapse of the blood clottingsystem, was caused by AIDS.
Another senior Israeli physician who read the report said that based on the symptoms that appeared in Arafat some four hours after he ate dinner on October 12, 2004, about a month before his death, it appears that his death was caused by that meal. "It is a classic case of food poisoning that is taught at medical school," the doctor said. The doctor adds that according to the symptoms described in the report, it appears that Arafat came down with regular food poisoning caused by a bacteria that releases poisons. Such poisoning should have been discovered in the tests carried out on Arafat in Ramallah, and should have been countered with antibiotics.
It should be recalled that Arafat was held prisoner in his office in the Muqtada in the Palestinian city of Ramallah for almost three years, surrounded by Israeli tanks and constantly under fire from small arms and artillery, and that sanitary conditions there were not of the best. If Arafat died of food poisoning or an infection due to the poor conditions of his confinement, then Israel must bear the responsibility as surely as if they had shot the old man or made him swallow cyanide.
Given Israel's routine use of murder as a political weapon, it certainly is not beyond the realm of possibility that Ariel Sharon ordered his old arch-enemy killed in some way so as to give Israel plausible deniability.
