The latest rumor is that the Palestinians may dig up the murderer to see if he was radioactive when he died.
Yasser Arafat's body may be exhumed to allow for more testing of the causes of his death, the Palestinian president said Wednesday, after a Swiss lab said it found elevated levels of a radioactive isotope in belongings the Palestinian leader is said to have used in his final days.Of course polonium has a half-life of 138 days, meaning that half of the substance decays roughly every four-and-a-half months--eight years after Arafat's death, the Swiss scientists reported finding polonium levels of 54mBq and 180mBq on his belonging, considered to be high levels. So it seems that the polonium was added more recently than eight years ago.
Arafat's widow, Suha, called for an autopsy in the wake of the lab's findings, first reported by the Arab satellite TV station Al-Jazeera. In an interview with the station, she did not explain why she waited nearly eight years to have the belongings, including a toothbrush and a fur hat, tested. At the time of his death, she refused to agree to an autopsy.
...Francois Bochud, who heads the Institute of Radiation Physics in Lausanne, Switzerland, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his lab examined belongings that Arafat's widow said were used by Arafat in his final days, as well as others that he hadn't worn. Suha Arafat said the belongings were put in a secure room at her attorney's office in Paris after Arafat's death and stayed there until Al-Jazeera approached the lab on her behalf at the beginning of this year, he added.
Experts found what Bochud characterized as "very small" quantities of polonium, an isotope that is naturally present in the environment. But there were higher quantities of polonium in Arafat's underwear and hospital clothing.
This would not necessarily mean Arafat was poisoned, Bochud said, adding that it is not possible to say where the polonium might have come from. "What is possible to say is that we have an unexplained level of polonium, so this clearly goes toward the hypothesis of a poisoning, but our results are clearly not a proof of any poisoning," Bochud said by telephone from Switzerland.
"If it had been used to for poisoning, minimal levels should be seen now. Yet much higher levels were found. Someone planted the polonium much later," Karmon said.If they dig up this vampire, let's hope they also test his remains for AIDS because there is much evidence that the former dictator was Gay and died of the horrible disease.
"Because of the half life of the substance, the conclusion is that the polonium is much more fresh," he added.
Karmon added that the Al-Jazeera report raised additional unanswered questions. Referring to the fact that Arafat's widow, Suha, provided the researchers with Arafat's belongings, Karmon asked, "If Suha Arafat safeguarded these contaminated materials, why, after seven years, was she not poisoned too? She touched these things and Arafat in hospital," he added.
For years Dr. Ashraf al-Kurdi tried sell his theory about the scum Arafat's death for two years--and is still working at it. al-Kurdi was Arafat's personal physician (who had nothing to do with treating the killer at the end of his life). He claims that the terrorist murderer was purposly infected with the AIDS virus shortly before his death to hide the fact that he was poisoned. One of the theories was that he was poisoned via his ear canal just like Hamlet's Father.
"It was easy to poison him in the ear, because he was under siege and he used to receive a lot of people and he used to hug them to kiss them and my assumption is that the perpetrator carried a small balloon of gas and he could blow it in Arafat's ear," said Ahmed Abdel Rahman, who worked closely with Arafat. source WNDThe truth is that Arafat was Gay.
Obviously just because he had AIDS did not mean Arafat was Gay, but the truth is the fact that Arafat was Gay was a well known/well kept secret in the Arab world.
.. in the memoirs of Ion Mihai Pacpea (the former head of Romanian intelligence and the highest-ranking intelligence officer to have defected from the Soviet Union), that Arafat potentially died of AIDS is but more evidence for what many have long suspected about the late Palestinian nationalist leader's sexuality.Munteaunu also compiled an intelligence report stating that Arafat's first homosexual relationship occurred with a teacher, when he was a teenager.
Pacepa recounted a conversation with a Romanian general, Constantin Munteaunu, tasked with training Arafat. 'I just called the microphone monitoring center to ask about the 'Fedayee,'' explained Munteaunu. (Fedayee was Arafat's code name.) 'After the meeting with the Comrade, he went directly to the guest house and had dinner. At this very moment, the 'Fedayee' is in his bedroom making love to his bodyguard. The one I knew was his latest lover. He's playing tiger again. The officer monitoring his microphones connected me live with the bedroom, and the squawling almost broke my eardrums. Arafat was roaring like a tiger, and his lover yelping like a hyena.
In 2000, Yasser Arafat repeatedly rubbed Terry McAuliffe's leg under the table at a Washington dinner party, before kissing him on the lips. McAuliffe, the former Democratic National Committee chairman, reports this in his book, "What A Party! My Life Among Democrats: Presidents, Candidates, Donors, Activists, Alligators and Other Wild Animals."
Arafat's blood had already been tested for poison.
Arafat died in France on November 11, 2007, at the age of 75. There was considerable secrecy about the cause of his demise, but his symptoms included the blotchy skin of Kaposi's sarcoma, severe weight loss, dementia, and a collapse of the immune system - all telltale signs of the AIDS virus. PLO senior advisor Bassam Abu Sharif claimed his ex-boss was poisoned by Mossad with a lethal dose of thallium, but Nabil Shaath, Palestinian Foreign Minister, admitted to Arab News that Arafat's blood was meticulously analyzed by German and French laboratories and no trace of poison was found. USA intelligence analyst John Lottus told ABC news that the CIA was aware, for years, that Arafat had AIDS.Mahmoud Abbas and Nationalist leader Ahmad Jibril confirmed that former Palestinian President Yasser Arafat died of AIDS. Jibril, like many Palestinians, readily accepted the notion that Israel had assassinated Arafat, and wanted the Palestinian Authority to conduct an official investigation concluding as much. The response from Abbas’ aides changed in an instant Jibril’s view of his deceased mentor.
They were silent, and then one of them said to me: ‘To be honest, the French gave us the medical report, that stated that the cause of [Arafat's] death was AIDS.
No matter what the results of any exhumation/testing of Arafat's rotting carcass no amount of evidence will convince the Palestinians or the liberal media that Arafat was a homosexual, or that his death was caused by anything other than a secret Israeli operation.
