    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.

    A majority of Palestinians believe Israel poisoned late Palestinian Authority leader Yasser Arafat, the AFP news agency reports. According to poll released Tuesday by the Ramallah-based Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, 59 percent of respondents believe Israel fatally poisoned Arafat, while 21 percent "believe that a Palestinian party or group or a joint Palestinian-Israeli party or group is responsible." Arafat died in 2004, at the age of 75, following an illness. At the time, his wife Suha refused to allow an autopsy. She later allowed investigators to exhume his body after traces of polonium-210 were found on clothing...

    Contrary to what the media is telling you, Nelson Mandela wasn’t jailed merely for opposing the apartheid government of South Africa. He was jailed to stop him from carrying out wide-scale terrorism on behalf of the global-communism-seeking Soviet Union. As Peter Wright points out in his article, Mandela–Mass Murderer Turned Into Saint by Media, “Mandela was imprisoned for conspiring and supporting acts of terrorism, mainly the blowing up of infrastructure (power lines) plotting to place bombs in public places (railway stations, etc.) and stockpiling weapons and explosives to carry out terrorist attacks.” The American Free Press reports that at the...

    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.

    Reuters ^ | 11/11/2013 | NOAH BROWNING
    A Russian report quoted by Palestinian investigators on Friday said there was insufficient evidence to support the theory that Yasser Arafat died in 2004 by polonium poisoning. The findings were far weaker than those of a Swiss laboratory announced with fanfare on Wednesday by Arafat's widow and Qatar-based al-Jazeera television. Palestinians remained unfazed by the results - which dampen but don't definitely disprove the possibility of death by poisoning - and officials continue to blame arch foe Israel. Samples were extracted from Arafat's corpse last November by Swiss, French and Russian experts after an al-Jazeera documentary revealed unusually high amounts...

    The entire resurrection of the Arafat poisoned by Polonium-210 story is complete junk science. I’ve said it before at Israellycool but lets expand on it. The story so far: Nine years ago, on November 11, 2004, Yasser Arafat died. That he could have died from natural causes or some “lifestyle disease” was too unpalatable for his followers so they came up with a rather bizarre theory that he was poisoned with Polonium-210. After decomposing in Ramallah for eight years his wife and followers dug up his corpse to try to prove it. >>SNIP<< With the most amazing measuring equipment, in...

In a report published by The Lancet at the weekend, the team provide scientific details to media statements made in 2012 that they had found polonium on Arafat's belongings.

    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) - The remains of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat will be exhumed Tuesday as part of a renewed investigation into his death, a Palestinian investigator said Saturday. Arafat died in November 2004 in a French military hospital, a month after suddenly falling ill. Palestinian officials claim he was poisoned by Israel, but have not presented evidence. Israel has denied such allegations. Earlier this year, the detection of a lethal radioactive substance in biological traces on Arafat's clothing sparked a new investigation. Tests were inconclusive, and experts said they need to check his remains to learn more....

    Three high-level U.S. military and intelligence sources have told me that Centcom has identified three options for Israel should it decide to take preventive military action against Iran.

Such an assault would be coupled with strikes from submarine-launched cruise missiles and Israeli-based medium-range Jericho II and long-range Jericho III missiles, according to a highly placed U.S. military officer. The attack may well be preceded by -- or coupled with -- a coordinated cyber and electronic warfare attack. But planners for...

Specifically, they will investigate the suspicions of Suha Arafat, Arafat’s widow, that her husband was murdered by a polonium-equipped Israeli assassin. It’s tempting to think that the investigation finally will put to rest conspiracy theories about Israel’s involvement in Arafat’s death. But history counsels otherwise.

Moreover, immediately after his death, Arafat’s wife, Suha, openly accused the PLO’s top brass of killing him. On top of it, she extorted huge sums of hush money from them....

Whether drones are morally acceptable is, of course, a valid area of debate, and one might have principled reasons for opposing them.

These events mark the beginning of the American people. For many Jews the celebration revolves around the Jewish New Year, when the Lord created the world, or Passover, when the Jews were freed from Egyptian slavery. At that points the Jews truly became a people, as they wandered for forty years after their Exodus. For the made up people known as Palestinians, the big event is Nakba...

This approach was unsuccessful. In 1948 and in 1967 Israel prevailed, although outnumbered and tiny relative to her enemies. Then in 1973, despite all odds she survived an attack on her holiest day. It was not due only to military might, but something greater protecting the Israelis. A very smart man looked around trying to...

    ZOA: It's Troubling To See Jewish Leaders Defend Israel/U.S. Basher George Soros Against Glenn Beck's Criticism November 16, 2010 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Morton A.

In that year, George Soros’ father...
  • Palestinian TV: I say that [Arafat] died from poisoning by the Jews

    Once again, Israel's "peace partner," the Palestinian Authority, talks "peace" to Westerners, but poisons the minds of its own people with the vilest hatred via state-controlled TV. A little Palestinian girl told PA TV, "I say that he [Arafat] died from poisoning by the Jews." (Watch her). She doesn't know that Yasser Arafat, the monster, led her ancestors -- his and her people -- from one disaster to another, from the failed and suicidal takeover of Jordan ("Black September"), to destroying Lebanon, to his "recognition" of Israel during the Oslo debacle, and in July 2000 his rejection of Israel's generous...

    Arafat museum in works Keepers of Palestinian leader's memory gathering thousands of objects - photographs, pistols, trademark sunglasses and military-style suits he favored - for display in $3.4 million museum under construction at his former West Bank headquarters. Shopkeeper: I loved him because he died while resisting Israel, US Yasser Arafat had a knack for turning ordinary objects into symbols, including the black-and-white checkered headdress that came to represent the Palestinian quest for a homeland. Six years after his death, the keepers of Arafat's memory are gathering thousands of objects - photographs, pistols, the trademark sunglasses and military-style suits he...

    So, I was reading the Drudge Report tonight – in particular the piece about all of the teeth-gnashing and angst that has been wrought by the new airport security procedures – you have to choose between an x-ray photo-shoot that sort of strips you naked for viewing by TSA personnel, or a pat-down search if you refuse the full-body scan – including manipulation of your private parts (not to put too fine a point on it). Reuters has the original report, if you care to read it: http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6AA55S20101111 And then I started thinking about who we really have to blame...
  • More J-Street revelations; moneymen and more Soros connections

    When Eli Lake's story regarding J Street's donor list was published the role of George Soros created controversy. Soros has a long history of funding anti-Israel activism so his role at J Street was deliberately hidden by the group for years. Now more revelations have started to leak. I did a bit of further research (hat tip: Cheryl Lewin) about another donor and supporter of J Street: Gail Furman. She sits on its advisory council and is a donor listed on its Form 990  . She is also a member of the board of the Soros-created Democracy Alliance - a...

    RAMALLAH, West Bank — It has been 10 years since Palestinians began an uprising that swept away peace talks, triggered a ferocious reaction by the Jewish state and left thousands dead on both sides. Exactly why it happened just as Palestinian statehood seemed attainable is a mystery, fed by conspiracy theories and competing narratives from across the political spectrum. This week comes an intriguing twist: One of the leading figures in Hamas seems to confirm that Yasser Arafat was playing a double game — encouraging Islamic militants to attack inside Israel while publicly insisting he was trying to stop the...

    Former Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat instructed Hamas to launch terror attacks against Israel when he realized that the peace talks weren't going anywhere, Mahmoud Zahar, one of the Hamas leaders in the Gaza Strip, revealed on Tuesday. "President Arafat instructed Hamas to carry out a number of military operations in the heart of the Jewish state after he felt that his negotiations with the Israeli government then had failed," Zahar told students and lecturers at the Islamic University in Gaza City. Zahar did not say when and how Arafat instructed Hamas back then to launch the "military operations" –...

    "My Hero the Grand Mufti" Yassir Arafat was born in Cairo, Egypt to a mother from the al Husseini Clan. The head clansman was Amin al Husseini, the famous Nazi war criminal who worked alongside Adolf Eichmann to kill six million Jews in the Holocaust of World War II. Amin al Husseini escaped the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials in Germany and fled to Egypt in 1945. There he trained his nephew, Yassir Arafat, to carry on Hitler's tradition. Arafat founded the Palestine Liberation Organization. While the PLO waged an unending war of terrorism against the Jewish state of Israel,...

    Attacks on nuclear power stations, oil and gas terminals, Canary Wharf and Heathrow’s control tower were being considered by leaders of the plot to blow up seven transatlantic airliners in mid-flight, a court was told yesterday. Documents found on computer memory sticks at the home of an alleged terrorist ringleader contained a list of targets across Britain – including the gas pipeline between Britain and Belgium. The man, Assad Sarwar, was said to be in contact with terrorist leaders overseas and visited Pakistan a month before his arrest as preparations for the airline attacks were being finalised. Peter Wright, QC,...
