    Former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat may have been poisoned with radioactive [W:9]

    BBC News - Yasser Arafat 'may have been poisoned with polonium'


    the fallout ( no pun intended) from this could be interesting.

    Hmmm, and I thought it was because he was 75 years old and looked 90.

    It had been suspected for quite some time and it was clear form the time of exhumation that any "proof" would remain dubious because the time that had elapsed made the physics quirky and broke the chain of evidence.

    Sure people who want it to be true will believe it to be true, but arafat had been in declining health for a decade before his death. One could see it in the photos.

    Arafat was a terrorist before the West declared war on such. Today, he would be killed or captured for a few of his crimes.

    It is incredibly foolish to conduct further investigation into this. No matter how unlikely it is that he was poisoned it will only inflame tensions, and if somehow it is discovered that he was poisoned the consequences could be dire. Let it rest.

    I agree but unfourtuntly there are people out there who will use this as an excuse to fan the flames of hatred against Israel ( if indeed it was them)

    I hope this is true. I believe it's an injustice that the rat faced piece of **** got off easy.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat may have been poisoned with radioactive [W:9] This is ok to stay here for now but please remember not to let the thread degenerate into specific discussions relating to the I/P situation. There's a thread over in the ME Forum relating to this incident if you wish to go down that line. Thank you.
