Did Palestinians poison Yasser Arafat?

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.

  • I don’t doubt it. Possible.

    Are you sure that’s not a picture of Heather Mallick?

  • Justin St.Denis

    I understand that Arafat died of health complications due to AIDS.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      He also had Parkinson’s, but I doubt if that was the cause.

      As reported by ABC Radio on the John Batchelor show at the time of his death. Death by AIDS and of some mid level pedophilia, if there are levels, I guess you would have to ask Ben Levin and the Premier of Ontario about the gradations of degeneracy in those folks.

    So the dozens of people around him who were bribed to kill arafat have to return the money?
    That doesn’t seem fair.

    Who cares. He’s dead and the world is just a little bit better for it.

  • Hard Little Machine

    They poisoned him with HIV+ semen, of course.

  • cmh

    Its not really important who or what caused this homicidal maniac’s death…. the real importance is just dont forget that arafat is a relative of mufti al husseini who is the mastermind behind the final solution

  • Tom Forsythe

    The Mossad doesn’t do secret conspiracies. If they killed Arafat, they would just announce it.

  • Everyone Else

    How many times in the course of a few days did the CBC spread the slander that Israel had poisoned Arafat with polonium?

    How many times will CBC now apologize for being wrong about yet another anti-Israel lie?
