Russia: Arafat's Death Not Caused By Radiation
AP Via Yahoo News ^ | December 26, 2013 | VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV

A Russian probe into the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has found that his death wasn't caused by radiation — a finding that comes after a French probe found traces of the radioactive isotope polonium and a Swiss investigation said the timeframe of his illness and death was consistent with that of polonium poisoning.

Vladimir Uiba, the head of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency, said Thursday that Arafat died of natural causes and the agency had no plans to conduct further tests.

I heard it was AIDS

he was pretty loopy at the end there- they were carrying him out on a stretcher and he was belted in and two people were holding his hands and he tried to bite one of them

A bad egg if ever there was one—the world is better with him and his poison not in it. I always thought it was AIDS that did him in.

Should have been by Hellfire missile - appropriately-named and a good end to Shiekh Yassin and Rantissi.

If Israel were the pariah the Arabs think it is, this guy would have died decades earlier.

When he did die, it just didn’t much matter any longer. I don’t think Israel would waste it’s time by that point.

Just one more thing for the Palis to hate Israel over.

Didn’t happen? Doesn’t matter...

Nice to know that “The Clapp” isn’t caused by radiation.

Was there a test for HIV/AIDS done?

If we discover the truth about how he died, he will come back to life and take over the PA again.

And the Russians are the reigning global experts on what radiation poisoning is all about...

Arafat died of HAGS.

HAGS = Herpes, AIDS, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and is very common in the Middle East.

Too bad.
I’d have liked to buy Arafat’s assassin a pizza or a beer and say “Thanks and well done. I hope you made sure it hurt.”

Yes. Israel is stupid really not to be sending as many of these islamonazis straight to hell “Allah “ or whatever ASAP. They should have one Arafat years before he finally died. Years. Could have saved countless innocent lives

Arafat was a terrorist. Who cares how he died.

a finding that comes after a French probe found traces of the radioactive isotope polonium and a Swiss investigation said the timeframe of his illness and death was consistent with that of polonium poisoning.

The French as usual are full of crap. Po 210 is extremely toxic, with one microgram being enough to kill the average adult.

Arafat died in 2004. His body was exhumed in 2012. 8 years.

Po 210 has a half life of 138 days which calculates to 21 half lives having passed between Arafat’s death and any search of Polonium in or on his body. Half life is a geometric reduction of the amount of the isotope present. Every 138 days there would be half as much Po 210 present as there was. (1/2, ¼, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 and so on for 21 times) and when you are talking about a tiny amount to begin with you see there is essentially nothing left detectable.

So unless Arafat’s body was saturated with Polonium at the time of death Polonium would be undetectable by the time of his exhumation and probably not even then.

The only possible clue to Polonium poisoning at that point would be to detect Lead 206 a stable isotope of lead to which Polonium 210 decays which I can only guess that would involve burning his cloths to ash and subjecting the ash to neutron flux then looking for evidence of Lead 209.

But in all reality I doubt that it would be possible to poison Arafat with Po 210 with out a few people close to him also being poisoned.

Arafat was a homosexual and a pedophile. He died of AIDS. This is something the Mooslimes don't want to talk about.

He was a raging pedophile. The Bulgarians or Romanians had a bunch of stuff on him.
