The totally weird, yet predictable, conspiracy theories about Yasser Arafat’s death continue to this day. The Palestinians can’t make up their mind whether it was a Jewish conspiracy or a Palestinian one. You try making peace with people who “think” like this
In his musical-comedy film, The Court Jester, Danny Kaye amused us with the tongue twisting line, “the pellet with the poison is in the vessel with the pestle.”
The long-running non-musical Palestinian theater of the absurd about who employed the poison that killed Yasser Arafat and how it was done is not as amusing, but it is nearing its resolution.
The Palestinian comedy appears to have ended with the decision on April 30, 2015 of French investigating judges that there was no foul play in the death of Arafat, the PLO leader, who died aged 75 on November 11, 2004 at the Percy de Clamart hospital near Paris.
