Senior counter-terrorism analyst says Polonium on Arafat's belongings was planted recently

A senior counter-terrorism analyst has told the Jerusalem Post that the levels of Polonium found on Yasser Arafat's belongings indicate that the substance was planted on the belongings long after Arafat's death.
Dr. Ely Karmon, of the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center's Institute for Counter-Terrorism, is a specialist in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear terrorism.

Responding to an Al Jazeera report published Wednesday, which said that specialists at the Institut de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, discovered abnormally high levels of polonium on Arafat's belongings, Karmon said that the half life of the substance would make it impossible for polonium to have been discovered at such high levels if it had been used to kill Arafat eight years ago.

According to the Al-Jazeera report, polonium has a half-life of 138 days, "meaning that half of the substance decays roughly every four-and-a-half months."

And yet, 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.

"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.

"Because of the half life of the substance, the conclusion is that the polonium is much more fresh," he added.
Karmon has some more questions too. Read the whole thing.

I'm sure you're all as shocked as I am that Suha Arafat and the 'Palestinian Authority' would try to put one over on the world like that.
