I Think I Know Who Killed Arafat

What killed Arafat according to Al-Jazeera?


What killed, on 1 November 2006, Alexander Litvinenko?

Lethal polonium-210-induced acute radiation syndrome.

Who killed Litvinenko?

NYTimes reported:

Mr. Litvinenko’s family issued what they said was his deathbed statement accusing President Vladimir V. Putin of “barbaric and ruthless” murder, a charge promptly rejected by the Russian leader.

Who killed Arafat again?

P.S.  Of course, it could all be a hoax.

nice. as Tom Friedman (in one of his more lucid, earlier) moments wrote: "if you want to explain some political event to someone in the middle east, and it's not a conspiracy theory... forget it."

conspiracy thinking has been the bane of arab societies, both in its passivity and its states of arousal.

The Russians? Come off it. If not Israel then some Pal thug like Dahlan might have had a hand in it.
