The Lancet: Arafat poisoned with polonium 210

Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, who rose from guerrilla icon to Nobel prize-winning peacemaker only to fall into isolation amid new violence with Israel, was declared dead in a Paris hospital November 10, 2004, officials said. The 75-year-old Palestinian president's death, announced at his West Bank headquarters of Ramallah, ended days of rumors over his condition.

Information Clearing House (Oct. 13)– A REPORT by a respected British medical journal the Lancet, has supported the possibility that late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was poisoned with the radioactive element polonium 210.

The journal published a peer review of last year’s research by Swiss scientists. It backed their work, which found high levels of the highly radioactive element in blood, urine, and saliva stains on Arafat’s clothes and toothbrush.

The Palestinian leader died in 2004 in a French hospital near Paris, after being effectively confined to his West Bank compound for two years.

In November 2012, experts from Switzerland, France and Russia exhumed his remains and took samples to examine for possible poisoning. It was prompted by a documentary aired on Al- Jazeera, that claimed there were traces of polonium in Arafat’s personal belongings

NATHAN J. FREEMAN in TML Daily reports that this mass action is aimed against the Israeli occupier, against its fascist policy of administrative detention and against the collaboration of the Palestinian National Authority (PA) in handing “wanted persons” in the West Bank over to the occupier.
