A nine-month investigation by Al Jazeera discovered rare, radioactive
polonium on the ex-Palestinian leader's final belongings. The finding
suggests that Arafat was poisoned with polonium, a rare, highly
radioactive element. The polonium was found in blood, sweat, urine and
saliva stains on his personal effects, and the levels recorded by
forensic pathologists in Switzerland - who studied the items - do not
occur naturally. Al Jazeera's Clayton Swisher reports.

  • I'd be very interested to know the details of the chain of custody of those items that were tested. There's too much political capital involved for this to be taken at face value, without very careful confirmation.

  • Dammit, you uncovered our conspiracy! We secretly gave a young goat to Arafat with a radioactive vagina.

  • There are all sorts of things wrong with this documentary. In the run-up to the presumed poisoning incident, they seek to demonstrate that Arafat's fall from grace was caused by others. HE HAD ALIENATED HIS OWN PEOPLE. No outside influence could have caused his internal problems. He was an obstacle to the lives and efforts of others with a variety of agendas, both more and less radical than his own. He personally hoarded millions that were meant to finance his cause.

    Most of all, Arafat ha More..
