My Yahweh ! Who would have wanted to kill Yasser Arafat with Polonium?

Suha Arafat welcomes PA support for action, saying she long suspected her husband was murdered. Arafat's widow calls for swift exhumation of her dead husband’s body. ‘Seriously ill and perhaps fighting for his life, Yasser Arafat was rushed Friday to a military hospital near Paris that specializes in blood disorders. Supporters holding flowers and waving Palestinian flags greeted the Palestinian leader as he was wheeled into the hospital. It was the first time Arafat has left his Israeli-besieged West Bank headquarters in nearly three years. The 75-year-old Arafat has been sick for the past two weeks and blood tests have revealed he has a low platelet count — a possible symptom of leukemia or other cancers, as well as a number of other maladies.’ That picture at the head of the article is of Yasser and his wife, Suha, shortly before he died.
