Fresh debate over Yasser Arafat’s death

Friday, September 09, 2005 | 
Yasser Arafat's doctor has renewed allegations that Israel poisoned the late Palestinian leader. “Israel gave Arafat the AIDS virus,” Dr. Ashraf al-Kourd told Israel’s Channel 2 Television. He was responding to published reports in Israel and the US that there is no evidence to back these allegations up. It’s "absolutely nonsense," said Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom. “They are just trying to damage Israel’s image.” The reports in the Israeli newspaper “Ha’aretz” and the “New York Times” said Arafat died of a stroke, but it’s not clear what disease led to the deterioration of his health. The mystery surrounding Arafat's death remains unresolved, and that's a sure-fire way to keep conspiracy theories alive.
