Israel describes as “soap opera” the conclusions about Arafat’s death

Israel described as “soap opera” the investigation made by three countries to find out the causes of the death of the historic palestinian leader Yaser Arafat, which point to the poisoning by high levels of polonium 210, after the results obtained by the swiss laboratory.

“This has nothing to do with Israel, nor has the slightest credibility. It’s another chapter in the endless soap opera between Suha, Arafat and the Palestinian Authority”, said to Efe the spokesperson of Foreign Affairs, Igal Palmor.
He added that the scientific base of the investigation was full of “holes”, because they haven’t investigated the places where Arafat was before dying searching for some radioactive traces, nor they wanted to interrogate the doctors who surrounded him in his deathbed in Percy’s hospital in Paris, where he died in 2004.

Besides –he pointed out- recently the Russian laboratory who was doing the third of the investigations –along with Switzerland and France- announced that they didn’t found rests of radioactivity, to retract it just after that.

“The possible poisoning theory has more holes than substance”,- sentenced Palmor, for whom the proofs about the possible “collateral pollution” have been realized neither.

The Qatar television Al Jazeera reported that the analysis realized by the Institute of Radiophysics from the University Hospital in Lausana confirms that the historic palestinian leader was poisoned with polonium.

The Scientifics, who confirmed the results from the other laboratory in Moscow, founded levels of polonium 210 about 18 times higher than normal in the samples taken from Arafat’s body.

According to Al Jazeera, the experts are 83 per cent sure that the palestinian leader, deceased in 2004 at age 75, was poisoned and consider “in a moderate way” that the polonium was the cause of the death.
