Al-Jazeera suggests Arafat poisoned by Israel

Every once in a while, the Arab media brushes off the blood libel that Israel poisoned Arafat and tries to make hay out of it. Al-Jazeera has done it again.
Arafat's widow provided Al Jazeera with his clothing and toothbrush for laboratory testing at the Institut de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland. “I can confirm to you that we measured an unexplained, elevated amount of unsupported polonium-210 in the belongings of Mr. Arafat that contained stains of biological fluids,” Al Jazeera quoted Dr. Francois Bochud, the director of the institute as saying.

According to the report, Russian spy-turned-dissident Alexander Litvinenko, who died in London in 2006 under suspicious circumstances, was found to have been poisoned with polonium slipped into his tea.

Arafat suffered similar symptoms to Litvinenko prior to his death - severe diarrhea, weight loss, and vomiting, according to the report.

Palestinians and Arabs have charged in the past that Israel poisoned Arafat. Some PA leaders have suggested that former Fatah official Mohammed Dahlan assisted Israel in the poisoning.

The Al Jazeera commissioned study of Arafat's belongings did not reveal any traces of common heavy metals or conventional poisons, so they turned their attention to more obscure elements, discovering the high levels of polonium, according to the report.
Of course, severe diarrhea, weight loss, and vomiting are all consistent with the final stages of AIDS as well. But al-Jazeera would never report that.

Except that they have sir. It's been widely published that aids was suspected, but blood tests have proven otherwise. Also, you should keep in mind that an independent organization has published the results. So far be it from to call you out and tell you that you are misrepresenting the news information. If you cannot state the facts then maybe you should not comment and mislead others in your promulgation and agenda to discredit other, in your opinion, less trustworthy news services and organizations. Thank you.
