Report: Arafat died from full body blood transfusion received in France
So what happened in France? Here’s another exposé. Arafat arrived on October 29 in serious condition. According to the information that reached few Israeli officials, and is revealed here for the first time, he suffered from complications stemming from leukemia. It’s possible that the publications that said he was suffering from AIDS were correct and it's possible they weren't – this writer has no conclusive information on that issue. What was known among those at the top of Israel’s defense echelon was that Arafat’s condition had begun to improve at the French hospital. Then, according to Israeli sources, the French doctors performed a dramatic measure – a full body blood transfusion. The process put Arafat in a state of shock and into a coma, one from which he never recovered. He died on November 11, 2004, and was transferred for burial to Ramallah.What seems most plausible is that Arafat had AIDS-related lymphoma.Read the whole thing.
What of the investigation being published by the Al Jazeera news network this week, which claims that Arafat was poisoned by Israel? It’s a collection of details, some of which might be true, but together create a completely groundless picture. The details being revealed here for the first time are based on sources that had first-hand knowledge of the full situational picture, and which do not hold any official public position today.
Why has Israel not bothered to officially refute the rumors of Yasser Arafat’s poisoning all these years? Because it had no interest in sustaining rumors as though the Mossad’s long reach made its way into Arafat’s circulatory system as well. Why have the French kept silent about it? Allegedly because of patient confidentiality of the deceased, but also because the true story reveals the fact that the direct cause of Arafat’s death was the medical treatment he was given. Lastly, why have the heads of the Palestinian Authority and the widow, Suha Arafat, kept quiet until this week’s investigation? Because they knew the truth all along, and they know it just as well today.
