Senior Palestinians will look into allegations that former president Yasser Arafat died of poisoning by Israeli Agents, in an investigation opened by the Palestinian parliament. No clear cause of his illness was found by French doctors who treated Mr Arafat in the weeks up to his death by massive brain haemorrage in November last year. Previously it was announced in December 2004 that the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) established a committee investigating his death with early rumours of foul play involved in the former leaders passing.

But in recent weeks some media reports, supposedly based on Mr Arafat's medical records, have suggested that the former Palestinian president died from either AIDS or poisoning.

The deputy speaker of the Palestinian Parliament, Hassan Kreisheh, says he has no doubts Israeli agents poisoned Mr Arafat, a charge Israel strongly denies.

The Palestinian Parliament has now appointed a committee to investigate the cause of the former president's death.

I doubt whether it will ever become public the reasons and cause of his death. I can see many committees and investigations but no answers as yet except many believe the death was suspicious.

Hopefully though answers will be forthcoming and this parliamentary committee can unearth some truthes.

Just what are the chances of the truth coming out from an internal palastinian investigation?

None at all, except the chance to poke accusations at their favorite boogy man Israel.

yawn....

Would be interesting to know Arafat's cause of death? It would put an end to the first chapter of the PLO.

Even if it becomes known, there will be those that will try to label it as a hoax and succeed.

excerpts from the palistinian investigative committee:

"any proof of israeli involvement?"

"no, sir."

"any proof that he was actually poisoned?"

"no sir."

"fine....our unanimous verdict is that the great arafat was poisioned by the zionist pigs"

The report would have about as much integrity as any American investigations. Dont let the glare from your house ruin your stone throwing ability.

Hmmm, based on the fair and unbalanced reports that have come out of this Palestinain Authority in the past I'd say we are in for a treat. I predict Israel will be cast free from blame and the Palestinains will say Arafat died of natural causes....... Hmmm wait a minute!

Arafat did nothing for his people. Any chance he did have to do anything, he squandered in my opinion due to his own political ineptitude.

Israel had ample oppertunity to kill him over the years so why would they do it then and there?

I do believe Arafat may have died of AID's. It would explain the hush hush over his death becuase if that one were to come out, it would spell the end of Arafats legend. I don't recall reading one official clear statement saying what it was he died from and have since read some very convincing articles saying what he might have died from. Regardless, good riddance to bad rubbish I say.

Uh ... yes ... billions of us. Including the French doctors
who were with him when he died.

He was OLD. He was in very poor health. He had a disgusting lifestyle
that included unprotected gay sex with boys whom he raped as well as
reports that he regularly raped his male body guards. Also, he was
stuck in that run down old building for years. All the millions that he
stole from the Palestinians were put in bank accounts in Switzerland
that his wife lived off of and that he didn't have access to so he
certainly couldn't buy proper food, medications, etc.

He died of either old age or AIDS. Of course, the Palestinians will
not be able to accept that. They need a martyr to continue their
operations .... it's good for their 'business'. The truth will not come
from the Palestinians. The French doctors said that he wasn't poisoned.
They also said that he didn't have AIDS. If he had been poisoned they
would have said so. If he died of AIDS, I can see them covering it up
for their good buddies the Palestinians.

The trouble with Arafat is he is such a hatefull figure there is always going to propaganda surrounding him. To me the causes of death are anything but clear. There are still a lot of unanswered questions. To me the other Palestinian leaders couldn't get rid of him fast enough. For me it would be more likely that the Palestinains rather than the Israelis killed him.

This is really ridiculous.
The guy died because he was OLD!
The Palestinians are always looking for ways to continue the violence that rules their lives.
