The obligatory “Did Arafat die of polonium poisoning?” post

posted at 7:01 pm on July 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

I’m confident that the coming testing on his exhumed remains will be carried out with all the rigor, honesty, and transparency for which Palestinian governance is known the world round.

Serious question: Is there any type of death that Arafat could have suffered that wouldn’t have inspired conspiracy theories? He could have been struck by lightning and Mossad would have been accused of building a lightning machine.

[T]ests reveal that Arafat’s final personal belongings – his clothes, his toothbrush, even his iconic kaffiyeh – contained abnormal levels of polonium, a rare, highly radioactive element. Those personal effects, which were analyzed at the Institut de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, were variously stained with Arafat’s blood, sweat, saliva and urine. The tests carried out on those samples suggested that there was a high level of polonium inside his body when he died.

“I can confirm to you that we measured an unexplained, elevated amount of unsupported polonium-210 in the belongings of Mr. Arafat that contained stains of biological fluids,” said Dr. Francois Bochud, the director of the institute…

There is little scientific consensus about the symptoms of polonium poisoning, mostly because there are so few recorded cases. Litvinenko suffered severe diarrhea, weight loss, and vomiting, all of which were symptoms Arafat exhibited in the days and weeks after he initially fell ill.

One teensy problem: Polonium has a half-life of 138 days, which means half the radioactivity of the sample disappears every four and a half months or so. Eight years later, only a tiny, tiny amount should be left from the original dose, on the order of just one atom per million. According to an Israeli scientist, the amount the Swiss lab found recently in Arafat’s possessions is simply too high to believe that it started decaying in 2004:

[E]ight years after Arafat’s death, the Swiss scientists reported finding polonium levels of 54mBq and 180mBq on his belonging, considered to be high levels.

“If it had been used to for poisoning, minimal levels should be seen now. Yet much higher levels were found. Someone planted the polonium much later,” [Dr. Ely] Karmon said…

Karmon added that the Al-Jazeera report raised additional unanswered questions. Referring to the fact that Arafat’s widow, Suha, provided the researchers with Arafat’s belongings, Karmon asked, “If Suha Arafat safeguarded these contaminated materials, why, after seven years, was she not poisoned too? She touched these things and Arafat in hospital,” he added…

“Did Al-Jazeera check the home of Suha Arafat in Paris and Malta where she kept the items for traces of polonium, as the British did in their investigation [of Alexander Litvinenko's polonium poisoning]?” Karmon asked.

Good question. Remember, in the Litvinenko case, trace amounts of polonium were found in multiple locations where he’d been. This stuff does cross-contaminate, even though he apparently received a small (but obviously still lethal) dose. For Arafat’s belongings to show such surprisingly high levels of radioactivity even now means he must have received a massive dose at the time — and yet, somehow, no one around him fell ill via cross-contamination. Amazing.

Three possibilities then. One: Israel could have zapped him with some sort of magical Zionist version of polonium that has a much longer half-life and somehow creates no risk to the people around the target. Rest assured, this will become the new conventional conspiracy-theory wisdom if further tests don’t bear out Al Jazeera’s findings. And it still won’t explain why, after tolerating a cretin like Arafat for 30+ years, Israel would have finally decided to take him out in 2004 when he was already boxed in at the Muqata. Two: The polonium on his belongings was transferred accidentally because of how those belongings were stored. The New Scientist explains:

“They have to establish that the polonium is not associated with a natural occurring radioactive source,” says Regan – perhaps by looking for other accompanying natural sources, such as lead-210, lead-214 or bismuth-214. Suha Arafat has now called for her late husband’s body to be exhumed for further tests, a move which the Palestinian Authority has agreed to in principle, report Reuters.

If you believe Arafat’s wife, she’s been storing his belongings at her lawyer’s office. Not sure why they’d be kept there in any container that might generate trace amounts of polonium as a byproduct, but there you go. Three: Arafat’s wife, or someone else with her permission, planted the polonium more recently to make it look like he’d been assassinated. The problem with that theory is that polonium’s not easy to come by. One of the reasons Israel’s a prime suspect is that it’s a nuclear state and has access to this element. The Palestinians could have gotten it on the black market, I guess, or maybe from their friends in Iran. But even then, why now and why Arafat? There are a million ways Israel’s enemies can frame it for bad behavior and none of them involve an extremely rare radioactive element and a guy who’s been dead since Bush’s first term. This seems like a long way to go to create bad PR for “the Zionist entity.”

It’s not important to the Palestinians that the charge be credible. They can inflame the passions of their audience just by making the charge.

The Palestinians method is “Harp and Carp”. No one in the Muslim world will question them.

If polonium poisoning is the new euphemism for AIDS, then yeah, that’s what he died of.

The rumors at the time indeed were of AIDS. Interestingly enough those would have died out and the cause of his death never been thought again if it weren’t for this nonsense. But the obvious phoniness of the cover story here only appears to confirm those rumors.

The only thing that mattered then and now is that he’s dead.

I remember watching this saga, checking the news each morning to see if Suha had finalized negotiations to secure her share of his “stash” leaving some scraps for the rest who had claims. Each day I looked hopefully for a final pronouncement that this grotesque creature who claimed to be part of the human race was gone.

It finally happened, and quite honestly I don’t give a damn about what caused his death.

Cody1991 on July 5, 2012 at 7:27 PM

4.01pm: Syria/Turkey: The bodies of the two Turkish pilots shot down by Syria have been recovered from the seabed today, AP reports.

A Turkish official said US ocean explorer Robert Ballard, aboard his deep-sea exploration vessel R/V Nautilus, found the bodies yesterday 8.6 nautical miles off the Syrian coast after the Turkish navy had pinpointed the area.

Turkey’s military said in a statement on its website that the bodies were taken to the base in the southern city of Malatya where their plane had originally taken off. It did not say how and by whom the bodies were recovered. A funeral ceremony was scheduled for Friday.

The military said the R/V Nautilus is continuing to search for more pieces of the plane’s wreckage.

With all the hollering and crying, and people trying to get on the pallet with him. They drop him three or more times like they did at the funeral, the procession is winding through the streets, and when they get him to the place of examination, they find they left him back in the street from the last place they dropped him. All I can say is that those Hamas supporters really know how to through a funeral.

It has always been my strong belief that Arafat died of AIDS and this polonium theory is pure baloney. Has Al-Jazeera reported the these facts about the half life of polonium? And, do these facts really matter to the crazy people who were his followers? It is time for the Paris hospital where the cretin Arafat was treated to release his medical records ………… or, perhaps Wikileaks needs to get access to the records and paste them all over the Internet. If Wikileaks did accomplish this service to the rest of the world, it would be wonderful.

Did you hear how some more “Palestinians” got kicked to the curb by an Arab Country?

http://www.jpost.com/MiddleEast/Article.aspx?id=276261

Jordanian authorities have been turning away Syrian refugees of Palestinian heritage or threatening to deport those who have arrived in Jordan from Syria over the past year, according to a report released on Wednesday by Human Rights Watch.

In addition, reports coming out of northern Jordan suggested a spike in the number of Syrians seeking refuge over the last few days, with more than 2,300 arriving Tuesday, according to Al Jazeera.

Does this make Jordan guilty of “ethnic cleansing”?

I’m still kinda bummed that arafat didn’t get a truly respectful muslim funeral procession like the ayatollah. If the corpse-man isn’t tossed to the ground and trampled then the muslims don’t really respect him.

It was close with yasser. They almost took him down in Ramallah. There were some folks chewing on the bumpers of that SUV …

BTW, it’s funny how the ayatollah’s funeral procession seems to have been totally wiped from the web. Amazing, really. Can’t find any images or video of it anywhere …

Back in the 70s or so, the ‘Palestinians’ settled in Jordan.

Then Jordan kicked them out, not wanting them.

Syria doesn’t want them.

Egypt doesn’t want them

Saudi Arabia won;t take them in.

Not even Libya, under Khaddafi, would embrace them.

But any and every time they got food when they were hungry, ISRAEL is the only country to step up.

If they find any on his a** they better run that detector over Carter’s lips.

Whatever.

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

The Palestinians could have gotten it on the black market, I guess

I can’t think of any reason A Q Khan wouldn’t be back in his lucrative business now that he’s free and clear.

I only wish the old terrorist had died of a Hellfire enema.

The Mossad poisoned the nasty f*ck?

That’s not a bug; that’s a feature!

stained with Arafat’s blood, sweat, saliva and urine.

Huh?

Back in the 70s or so, the ‘Palestinians’ settled in Jordan.Liam on July 5, 2012 at 9:22 PM

No. Arabs were already living in Jordan and Judea and Samaria all the time. The Fakestinians are the ones who fled Israel in 1948. Jordan refused to grant them citizenship and restricted them in the worst squalor possible for the next 2+ decades.

Then Jordan kicked them out, not wanting them.

They weren’t just kicked out. They were massacred – rightfully so – after Arafat attempted an uprising against the Midget King. It was known by the now infamous name Black September.

Lefties say conservatives hate science, but we’re the ones arguing the actual decay rate of polonium while the Left runs with a BS story about Arafat being Litvinenko’ed.

He certainly didn’t die from shaving or bathing.

Now if the bathhouse was in a nuke-yoo-luhr facility then maybe it got to him before the AIDS did…but only if lightning didn’t strike him first.
