Op-ed: Latest Arafat conspiracy theory merely an effort to arrange a more dignified death
Fatahs old guard, and especially Arafats family, has a great task: Arranging a dignified death for the father of the Palestinian nation.
The fact that Arafat left the stage while afflicted with a disease that one does not speak about openly, far away from his people, at a French hospital, is incommensurate with the national ethos.
Moreover, immediately after his death, Arafats wife, Suha, openly accused the PLOs top brass of killing him. On top of it, she extorted huge sums of hush money from them.
There is no doubt that its much more dignified to arrange a heroic martyrs death for the father of the nation, preferably at the hands of Mossad or Shin Bet. Indeed, every year we see yet another theory about an Israeli conspiracy against Arafat. This time we are being told about a lethal, radioactive toxin implanted by Mossad agents on the supreme leaders famous fur hat and other items around him.
The truth about Arafats death is still found in the medical file possessed by his widow, Suha, who refuses to publish it to this very day. The French hospital is also refraining from publishing the file, as result of the widows objection. Suha Arafat knows the truth, and is apparently not quite comfortable with this truth.
The Palestinian Authority, PLO and Fatah announced over the years the formation of at least three commissions of inquiry tasked with looking into the circumstances of Arafats death. However, none of these committees ever published any conclusions and did not report receiving the leaders medical file from his widow.
On the other hand, Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Popular Front and an Arafat rival, said that top PLO officials told him that Arafat died of AIDS. In Israel as well, intelligence officials estimated that he died of AIDS or of another infection that prompted his bodily systems to collapse.
Israeli officials in fact liked the version whereby Israels long intelligence arms are omnipotent and killed Arafat, and thereby made do with winks and smiles, as if they really knew what was going on in the Palestinian leaders body. It should also be noted that on the eve of his death, Arafat was perceived by Israels defense establishment as a first-rate public relations asset: He was unstable, confused, isolated in his headquarters and not functioning well.
At that point, Israel had no interest in assassinating him.
And now, al-Jazeera comes out with an investigative report about a radioactive substance that killed Arafat. The report does not explain where exactly all these articles of clothing, tainted with this radioactive substance, were being held for the past seven years, ever since they were taken from their owner.
Perhaps once the investigative reporters manage to pinpoint the journey these tainted items made until they reached the lab in Switzerland, this radioactive mystery will be resolved.
Meanwhile, the dirty little secret is that alleged tough guy Arafat died of AIDS. That instantly equates to homosexual behavior in most people's minds so, to the Muslim world, dying of AIDS is simply unthinkable for a terrorist icon such as the grubby little Egyptian, Yasser Arafat.
That Arafat's widow extorted money from the PA to keep the lid on the truth is amusing. The corruption in that bunch knows no bounds. Now, 7 years postmortem, hints about old Arafat being killed by toxic amounts of radiation material by agents unknown is resurrected. It's a farce.
Arafat was a terrorist and died of AIDS. No great loss to humanity. Who cares about his phony reputation? He was an impediment to peace and a greedy little weasel who socked away millions while 'his people' suffered. I hope the truth becomes known so the old terrorist can be knocked off the pedestal erected for him by those who shared his bloodthirsty views and profited from his corruption. That includes his greedy wife.
As another Freeper posted (inadvertently), Arafat was associating with Inmans.
“Arafat died of AIDS. Yes sir.”
No, no, don’t tell me that Muzzie men boink each other. Can’t happen. The mulladorks say that homosexuality does not exist in muzzie countries.
And we all know that muslims don’t lie.
Not much surprises me in life anymore. I’ve heard rumors of his proclivities for more than a decade. There may be something to them, and you may be right. He was a vile slug in his own right, even without this.
Yes indeed. Why after EIGHT years hasn’t she shown polonium poisoning if she has had control of these clothes?
