Haaretz uses false and inflammatory headline

With 'Palestinians' already rioting, Haaretz has decided that this is the time to use an inflammatory headline about the riots' cause that bears no relation to the story's content. Note the headline and what comes after it.

Autopsy shows Palestinian prisoner died from torture, says PA chief pathologist
Medical examination lists no cause of death for Arafat Jaradat, who died on Saturday in Meggiddo Prison; Israeli officials: No signs of torture. By Dan Even, Jack Khoury and DPA | Feb.24, 2013 | 10:11 PM
The Palestinian prisoner who died in Megiddo Prison on Saturday did not expire from a heart attack, as Israeli officials previously claimed, but from torture, says a Palestinian doctor who was present for the autopsy performed by an Israeli doctor Sunday.
Saber Aloul, chief pathologist of the Palestinian Authority, who attended the autopsy in Israel, said marks on Arafat Jaradat's body showed he had been tortured during his interrogation.
The autopsy, performed at the National Institute of Forensic Medicine, listed no
cause of death.
The Shin Bet security service denied Aloul was tortured. A Health Ministry spokesperson said no exterior signs of injuries were discovered during the medical examination, apart from resuscitation bruises and a small abrasion on the right side of Jaradat's chest.
The examination was conducted by the institute's chief pathologist, Yehuda Hiss, in the presence of Aloul and the head of the Health Ministry's medical administration, Prof. Arnon Afek.
Prior to the autopsy, Israeli officials had said Jaradat likely died of cardiac arrest, while Palestinians believed he died as a result of torture.
No sign of heart failure was found during the examination, nor was any other sign of illness, according to Aloul and Israeli officials.
Pathologists are now awaiting the results of microscopic and toxicology tests, which might take days or even weeks to receive.
Note that there are no conclusions yet. There is no basis for the 'Palestinian' doctor's statement. His claim has about as much credibility as the claim that Arafat was poisoned by Israel: Zero.
