Yasser Arafat Autopsy

Arafat Poisoning Accusations: Another Vile Slander Against Jews And Israel

Earlier this week, the campaign to demonize the Jewish nation of Israel took another leap into the Twilight Zone, when a team of Swiss and Russian “experts” revealed the results of their examination of Yasser Arafat’s remains and claimed that the terrorist leader “was likely poisoned” with Polonium-210.

As was expected, two days later, Tawfik Tirawi, head of the Palestinian committee investigating the death of Arafat, called the case “the crime of the 21st century.” Tirawi then launched into a tirade and blamed Israel for assassinating the former king of terror:

“Israel is the No. 1 and only suspect in the assassination of Yasser Arafat. We have enough evidence, facts and data to prove the truth of our theory. We are close to the truth.”

Wasel Abu Yousef, a member of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, was chomping at the bit to blame the Jews:

“President Arafat was the victim of an organised terrorist assassination perpetrated by Israel, which was looking to get rid of him.”

For their part, Israel addressed this foolishness years ago, after Arafat’s widow, Suha, took time out from accusing Israel of using poison gas on Arab children to claim the Jews killed her husband. We must also remember that this is the same woman who had this to say about peace with Israel, after rejecting yet another olive branch from an Israeli woman’s group:

“I have always rejected normalizing relations with [Israeli] women. They always invite me to their functions and I categorically refuse because I hate Israel.”

Dov Weisglass, who was chief of staff to former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon when Arafat died in 2004, made it quite clear that the Jewish state had no reason to kill the 75-year-old terrorist:

“Israel did not have any hand in this. We did not physically hurt him when Arafat was in his prime… so all the more so we had no interest in this kind of activity when he was politically sidelined.”
