Arafat has been ill for years now - namely with Parkinson's disease. He's had a hard life. Which means that his 75 years of age probably look more
like 80. I don't think Israel has anything to do with it.
1) Ariel Sharon would've killed him in a bombardment rather than by poison or biological agent.
2) The Israeli government, I hope, knows that if it should come out that Arafat was poisoned or "disposed of", they would have a civil war on their
hands. Arafat is still a symbol for many Arabs, for good or bad.
