The Poisoning of Arafat

Maie Sarraf sends this item. The Next Century Foundation was one of the last groups to visit Arafat before his death. We were always quite certain that he was poisoned. The medical evidence is pretty incontrovertible. Abu Mazen refused to allow an autopsy so this could never be confirmed:

By The Associated Press
Former French President Jacques Chirac knows what killed Yasser Arafat and should make it public, an ex-Arafat aide said yesterday, reiterating that he believes his boss was poisoned by Israel. Arafat died November 11, 2004, after being treated in a French military hospital.

Bassam Abu Sharif, a former Arafat aide, told reporters yesterday - on what would have been Arafat's 78th birthday - that Chirac and Arafat's French doctors know the real cause of death
