Yasser Arafat not poisoned, French experts say
CBC ^ | 12/3/2013 | Unattributed

Yasser Arafat was not the victim of poisoning, French forensic tests concluded on Tuesday, countering the theory put forward by a Swiss report on the 2004 death of the Palestinian leader.

The French conclusions were immediately challenged by his widow Suha Arafat, who has argued the death was a political assassination by someone close to her husband. A senior Palestinian official dismissed the report as "politicized".

Swiss forensic experts stirred controversy last month by announcing that results from their tests of samples taken from Arafat's body were consistent with polonium poisoning, while not absolute proof of the cause of death....

"The results of the analyses allow us to conclude that the death was not the result of poisoning," the source quoted it as concluding. "Measurements of Polonium 210 and other radioactive substances taken from biological samples of the body are consistent with a natural environmental origin."

The Widow Suha Arafat was probably in the best position of ANYBODY to administer a poison, and the loud protestations that he WAS poisoned, implying that it was done by another, do not ring quite true.

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

He died of AIDS contracted from a 12 year-old, hand-around boy. Or so I’ve been told. Might have been 13

The French conclusions were immediately challenged by his widow Suha Arafat, who is a well known Palestinian forensic
expert...

And she inherited how many millions?

Absolutely true.

After all, with the notable exception of Arafat's harem of goats, who else would have had the level of access that she had?

(Of course, it's hard to rule out the possibility that one goat may have become jealous of Arafat's affection and favors for one of the others, and that in a moment of passion she might have slipped a little something something into his, um, goat milk or something.)

In arafat’s case, Mephistopheles merely called home one of his own.
