Re: Test Arafat for poisoning: Abbas to Swiss experts

True. Among his adversaries were Israel most of all, but also Syria. And Syria was, via el-Saika, directly INSIDE the PLO. el-Saika, just like el-Fatah, the PFLP, the PDFLP and the PLA is one of the members of the PLO. But el-Saika is dominated by the Syrian Mukhaberat. The relations of Arafat with General Mubarak were always quite good and those with King Hussein bin Talal, once on below zero, over the years had gradually improved. So that to me, IF there was a poisoning action it was either Israel or Syria.

& for the conspiracy theorists, Syria is close to the Russians who are already suspected of using Polonium; it is not the sort of product you can buy in your corner shop.


Nasty stuff Polonium & difficult to handle; investigators need to look at people who had contact with Arafat & themselves soon became very ill or died. I doubt Arafat would have allowed contact with anyone who visited him wearing a lead suit
