On the request of Suha Arafat 75, widow of PLO chief Yasser Arafat – Arafat’s body will be exhumed from his tomb in Ramallah (West Bank) on November 27. The body will be tested to find out if he was poisoned by Israelis in a Paris hospital in 2004. After a team of scientists from France, Switzerland and Russia each take samples from Arafat’s remains, the reburial will take less than 24 hours, said Tawfiq Trawi, former Palestinian intelligence chief, who is chairing the Palestinian investigative committee.
The experts will take the sample to their respective countries to be tested for Polonium 210 and possibly other poisonous substances.
“It’s a painful necessity, “Tirawi said of exhumation, accusing the Zionist regime of taking part what he called “assassinating” PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat.
Uri Dan, a veteran Israeli journalist, director of Israel Democracy Institute and author of book, ‘Ariel Sharon: An Intimate Portrait’ – wrote in Israeli daily Maariv: “In the history books, prime minister Ariel Sharon will be remembered as the man who eliminated Yasser Arafat without killing him.”
Earlier an investigation conducted by the Institute de Radiophysique in Lausanne (Switzerland) on behalf of the pro-West Qattari Al-Jazeera, had found out that the PLO leader died of poisoning. The doctors found traces of deadly radioactive isotope Polonium-210 on the clothing worn by Arafat during the last days of his life. The permission to exhume the remains of Arafat was given by the US-Israel backed, Mahmoud Abbas, the ruler of the West Bank whose mandate as the president of Palestinian Authority (PA) expired in January 2009.
Jeffrey Blankfort, an American Jewish writer, author and pro-Palestinian activist has called Yasser Arafat an “Israeli asset”. Read the rest here.
Alan Hart, a British veteran journalist and author of Arafat’s biography, ‘Arafat: A Political Biography’, wrote an open letter to President Barack Obama, in which he informed Obama that Hamas, Hizbullah and Iran are not the real evildoers in the Middle East – it’s Israel. He also claimed in the letter that Arafat was “most probably the first victim of Israeli biological warfare”.
The Mossad has a history of using poisons and biological agents against Zionist entity’s enemies. In 1997, in Amman, Mossad agent tragetted Hamas leader in exile, Khaled Meshaal, who sprayed levofentanyl into his ear. Israel provided the antedote after late King Hussein threatened to null peace treaty with the Zionist entity. After recovery, Meshaal took refuge in Damascus where he was protected and received military and financial support from Assad regime for 11 years. Now, like a hypocrite, Meshaal has turned against Assad regime for Qattari money.
In February 2010, Dubai police charged 11 Moosad agents for the assassination of Hamas top operative, Mahmoud al-Mabouh, at Dubai’s Al Bustan Rotana Hotel by injecting succinylcholine into him, immobilizing him as he was suffocated. When asked by reporters about Mossad involvement, Zionist foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman refused to comment on the incident, saying of the entity’s intelligence matters, “Israel never responds, never confirms and never denies“.
