How the Israeli Quintet Indicted Itself 

The Murder of Arafat 

by SAM BAHOUR 

    “We have to get rid of Arafat” ~Israeli defense Minister Shaul Mofaz to Prime Minister Sharon caught on an open mic, Source: Haaretz (Hebrew) 

    “We operated against Ahmed Yassin and Abdel-Aziz al-Rantissi [two Palestinian leaders extrajudicially assassinated by Israel] when we thought the time was suitable. On the matter of Arafat we’ll operate in the same way, when we find the convenient and suitable time. One needs to find the time and to do what has to be done.”  ~ Israeli Prime Minister Sharon to Ma’ariv newspaper, Source: The Guardian 

Yasser Arafat may be dead, but for all intents and purposes he lives on and continues to be a thorn in Israel’s side. Earlier this month a Swiss doctor announced that high levels of toxic polonium-210 were found on some of Arafat’s belongings. Polonium-210 is a highly radioactive substance, one that would require a nuclear reactor and expertise to produce and handle. Israel, being a nuclear power and having publicly expressed a motive for Arafat’s “elimination,” fits the description.
