Right Intention: What Killed Arafat?

What Killed Arafat?

This was predictable. Conspiracy theories about Arafat's death are turning to Israel.

In the absence of hard facts about his death, the Palestinian leadership is promoting ideas that he was poisoned by the Israelis, and young Palestinians displayed placards demanding “Who killed our father?” The message was the same from Tayeb Abdul Rahib, president of the Palestinian Cabinet and presidency office. “I swear that we will not rest until we find the truth and hold the guilty accountable for your death.”

Will France do the right thing and release the details of what killed Arafat? I doubt it. And it has nothing to do with French law. They'd be quite willing to break French law if the government thought it was in their interest. What's best for the Arab/Israeli situation is a secondary consideration, if that.

On the other hand, the Palestinians should be careful what they wish for.
