Arafat: Murder Most Foul

Samantha 2012/07/09 18:02:03
If the Israelis murdered Arafat, all U.S. aid to Israel should be prohibited. The United States should not be supporting, in any way, the rogue regime in Israel.

The ghost of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is rising from his grave to haunt Israel and the Americans.

A devastating investigation by Qatar’s al-Jazeera has found mounting evidence that Arafat’s death in 2004 was caused by the poisonous radioactive substance Polonium 210. Arafat’s widow, Suha, is now calling for his body to be exhumed and sent to the Swiss scientific institute in Lausanne that recently discovered traces of Polonium in Arafat’s clothing and personal effects.

In 1997, two Israeli agents tried to murder Hamas leader Khaled Mashal in Amman, Jordan by squirting a poison into his ear. Threats from US President Bill Clinton forced Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to deliver an antidote to the unknown poison to Jordan.

In 2010, another Hamas chief, Mahmoud al Mabhouh was murdered in Dubai by Israeli agents using a paralyzing drug, acytelcholine.

Yasser Arafat’s death came when the PLO leader was under virtual house arrest in his compound at Ramallah, surrounded by Israeli forces that controlled the compound’s food and water. Arafat had been threatened by death countless times by Israel, notably by PM Ariel Sharon. Most of Arafat’s most able aides had been killed by Israeli hit teams from Mossad. The amazing thing is that Arafat survived so long.

    Hah hah hah!! Polonium 210 has a half life of 138 days. There's no way it wasn't planted, since this scum died years ago. The only people who would even believe this are Arabs and 'Palestine' groupies, which is why al-Jazeera (AKA JihadTV) is pushing it.

    Arafat was a vicious, evil and murderous homosexual who died of AIDS. It would have been far better for the world if Sharon had allowed a sniper to kill him back in Lebanon in the 1980's. Among other things, he ordered two American diplomats, a woman and a black man, to be tortured to death. The bodies were so unrecognizable they could only be identified by their fingerprints.

    It says a great deal about the 'Palestinians' that they deify a creature like this.

    What a load of BS!

    It all apparently started when Arafat’s widow, Suha, allowed her dead hubby’s dirty laundry to be examined by Europe’s “best” toxicologists, as Al-Jazeera terms them. Why did she have such belongings eight years after the fact, and why she think to have them checked now?

    Also never mind that polonium would have been the LAST poison Israel would use if it really wanted to kill Arafat.
    Everyone knows the Russian government used polonium to kill defector Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2006. Litvinenko’s death, and the identity of his assassins, were highly visible by design.
    Even if Sharon ended up changing his mind and opted for poison-kill after all (highly unlikely), he’d have wanted an untraceable toxin to turn suspicion AWAY from Israel.
    Never mind, too, that none of Litvinenko’s tell-tale symptoms of polonium kill (hair loss, bone-marrow deterioration) were found in Arafat’s body. Or that toxin experts highly doubt that polonium traces can last this long.
    Back in 2004, in fact, French authorities reported finding no toxins during their treatment of Arafat. His personal physician said in a televised interview that the Palestinian leader (long rumored to be a homosexual) had died of AIDS.
    And Suha (long rumored to be siphoning Palestinian funds to her private bank accounts) declined an autopsy.

    Of course rumors do far better in the Arab street than facts or logic.

    Why?
    He's been dead for eight years. The French authorities stated that they found no toxins (he died in a Paris hospital) and his own personal physician said he died of AIDS.

    This appears to be a blatant attempt by al Jazeera to make news.

    No. The article suggests that al Jazeera is trying to create a story.

    The fact that Israel is suspected of using something as blatant and slow acting as Polonium 210 is laughable. As I stated, it's too obvious.

    Every country has a history of political assassinations. Why should Israel be unique? Israel had no reason for assassinating Arafat. He was dying anyways and the LAST thing Israel needs is a Pali martyr.

    I think al Jazeera wants another intifada. Not enough pictures of dead Palis lately.

    OK Let's exhume the body and while they're testing for Polonium 210 they should also test for AIDS.

    Exhuming the body is a great idea. The two greatest threats to international peace are the United States and Israel. While the latter commits political assassinations and engages in state-sponsored terrorism, U.S. taxpayers pay the bill.

    You're only 20 so I'll forgive you for parroting the BS line about Israel and the US being the "two greatest threats to international peace".
    Do yourself a favor and research what you hear.
    Despite the dogma Islam is actually the greatest threats to international peace.
    Since the 1990s violence occurred between Muslims and non-Muslims in Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Chechnya, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Kashmir, India, the Philippines, Indonesia, the Middle East, Sudan and Nigeria.
    Five of the seven states listed by the U.S. State Department as supporting terrorism are Muslim, as are a majority of foreign organizations listed as engaged in terrorism.

    As for Arafat:
    The spokesman for the Institut de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, where Arafat's old, dirty clothes were were analyzed, stressed that the clinical symptoms described in Arafat's medical reports were NOT CONSISTENT with polonium-210 and that conclusions could not be drawn as to whether the Palestinian leader was poisoned or not and that the only way to confirm the findings would be to exhume Arafat's body to test it for polonium-210. http://www.reuters.com/articl...

    An interesting point is that the head of the Institut de Radiophysique said of the exhumation and testing "But we have to do it quite fast because polonium is decaying, so if we wait too long, for sure, any possible proof will disappear,"
    Yet then Institute had found "surprisingly" high levels of polonium-210 in Arafat's belongings. (8 years after his death.)

    "The high levels of the radioactive poison polonium reportedly found on the belongings of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat indicate that the toxin was planted on them long after his death, a senior counterterrorism analyst told The Jerusalem Post Thursday.

    Dr. Ely Karmon, of the Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya’s Institute for Counterterrorism, is a specialist in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear terrorism.

    Responding to an Al Jazeera report published Wednesday – which said that researchers at the Institut de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, discovered abnormally high levels of polonium on Arafat’s belongings – Karmon said that the half-life of the substance would make it impossible for polonium to have been discovered at such high levels if it had been used to kill Arafat eight years ago." http://legalinsurrection.com/...

    It's not a "line." The U.S. supports a rogue regime in the Middle East that engages in state-sponsored terrorism and political assassinations.
  • fuzzy K... Samantha 2012/07/10 20:45:10

    1. What "rogue regime"?
    The United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine was a plan to replace the British Mandate for Palestine with "Independent Arab and Jewish States" and a "Special International Regime for the City of Jerusalem" administered by the United Nations. On 29 November 1947 the General Assembly adopted a resolution recommending the adoption and implementation of the Plan of Partition with Economic Union as Resolution 181
    The Plan was rejected by leaders of the Arab community, including the Palestinian Arab Higher Committee, who were supported in their rejection by the states of the Arab League.
    In 2011, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas stated that the Arab rejection of the partition plan was a mistake he hoped to rectify.

    2. If you're going to criticize Israel for "state-sponsored terrorism and political assassinations" then you should also be criticizing the rest of the world especially the Arab countries. Look up the assassination of Rafic Hariri if you want a good example. Another is the former and present leadership in Egypt who have been persecuting and killing Copts for decades.
    Israel, for it's part at least targets people who are actively seeking to target innocent civilians, Arab and Jew alike. .How do you think Israel gets the information about bomb makers, etc? They get it from Palestinians who do not wish to see innocents killed.

    I don't condone violence of any kind but many in the U.S. give a pass to Israel and, furthermore, Israeli-sponsored terrorism is done with the financial backing of the United States. Israel is, indeed, a rogue regime setting up settlements that violate international law.

    You "condemn all violence" but choose to single out only Israel. If I had a nickle for every time I saw this hypocrisy I would be rich.

    BTW: It's not terrorism when you're trying to stop someone from killing your people. It is, in fact a country's responsibility to do that.
    Terrorism is shooting rockets at a clearly marked school bus. Terrorism is ambushing a pregnant woman driving on a road and slaughtering her and her companions. (Hamas called the people who did that "heroes")
    Terrorism is lobbing over 160 missiles and mortars towards a civilian town in one month
    Terrorism is butchering a family in their beds including a baby. (Hamas also called the people who did that "heroes")
    Terrorism is specifically targeting civilians with no military reason other than to kill.

    From the article!

    "I can confirm to you that we measured an unexplained, elevated amount of unsupported polonium-210 in the belongings of Mr. Arafat that contained stains of biological fluids," Francois Bochud, director of the institute, said in the documentary.

    Bochud said the only way to confirm the findings would be to exhume Arafat's body to test it for polonium-210.

    "But we have to do it quite fast because polonium is decaying, so if we wait too long, for sure, any possible proof will disappear," he told Al Jazeera.

    OK. Logic time.

    From the article!
    If Arafat's body needs to be exhumed fast ("But we have to do it quite fast because polonium is decaying, so if we wait too long, for sure, any possible proof will disappear,") how come there was an "elevated amount of unsupported polonium-210 in the belongings of Mr. Arafat" who died eight yeas ago?

    The two seem to contradict each other.
  • Samantha fuzzy K... 2012/07/10 20:53:40

    Until the body is exhumed and a thorough investigation is conducted, there are many questions. I support the investigation; apparently, you don't because I think you know where it leads.

    It's amazing how you reject all the ill-treatment and murder of Palestinians by Israelis and then claim they're 'fabricated.' The Israeli aggression against Palestinians is well documented; see the links below. Your defense of Israeli aggression is appalling but I've come to expect it from the Israeli apologists. It's morally wrong for the U.S. to support the murderous regime in Israel; however, the U.S. has its own record of murder/assassination/overthrow of democratically elected governments. In your world, it seems, the racist treatment of Palestinians by Israelis, the murder of Palestinians, the theft of land is all, in your twisted mind, a Palestinian fabrication. Well, sir, the facts don't support your beliefs.

    You didn't watch the video or if you did, you didn't really stop and think about it did you?

    1. "reject all the ill-treatment" ? No. Not at all. People tend to "mistreat" those that are trying to kill them. This is especially true in war.

    2. There is nothing racist in this discourse. All you need do is compare how Israel treats Arabs who live in Israel and Arabs who attack Israel from the outside.
    What IS racist is that you set the bar far lower for Arabs than you do for Israelis.

    3. As for the settlements, that's what's called a "red herring". What was the excuse for the attacks on Israel when the West Bank was occupied by Jordan and Gaza by Egypt? What was the excuse for the attacks before Israel was a state? What was the excuse for the attacks during the Zionist immigration during the Ottoman Empire?

    And you call me an apologist?
  • Samantha fuzzy K... 2012/07/10 23:11:55

    The illegal settlements aren't a red herring; they're a violation of international law. We're not going to get anywhere as long as you condone Israeli aggression and terrorism.
  • fuzzy K... Samantha 2012/07/11 13:23:55

    So...
    What was the excuse BEFORE there were any Jewish settlements in the West Bank?
    What was the excuse for the attacks on Israel when the West Bank was occupied by Jordan and Gaza by Egypt?
    What was the excuse for the attacks before Israel was a state? What was the excuse for the attacks during the Zionist immigration during the Ottoman Empire?

    Do a little research and you will find that the Arabs could always find an excuse.
