Pallywood does Polonium

Pallywood does Polonium

We have featured Pallywood here many times, the industry build on faux.

From numerous instances of fauxtography to wildly exaggerated reports of massacres, this industry is devoted to building the narrative of perpetual Palestinian victimhood.  From the archives:

It looks like we are seeing the same thing with the claim that polonium was used by the Israelis to kill Arafat 8 years ago.  From Jerusalem Post:

The high levels of the radioactive poison polonium reportedly found on the  belongings of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat indicate that the toxin  was planted on them long after his death, a senior counterterrorism analyst told The Jerusalem Post Thursday.

Dr. Ely Karmon, of the Interdisciplinary  Center, Herzliya’s Institute for Counterterrorism, is a specialist in chemical,  biological, radiological and nuclear terrorism.

Responding to an Al  Jazeera report published Wednesday – which said that researchers at the Institut  de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, discovered abnormally high levels of  polonium on Arafat’s belongings – Karmon said that the half-life of the  substance would make it impossible for polonium to have been discovered at such  high levels if it had been used to kill Arafat eight years ago.

As Carl at Israel Matzav sarcastically notes:

I’m sure you’re all as shocked as I am that Suha Arafat and the ‘Palestinian Authority’ would try to put one over on the world like that.

And how bankrupt would your ideology be if you had to resurrect Yasser “That’s My Baby” Arafat with claims of Israeli poisoning to whip up your dupes?

All we need at this point, to complete the production is the return of our old friend from days gone by.
h/t to my old friend Brian at his snappedshot (now inactive) site

As if the Israelis would prefer Hamas over Ringo Star’s evil twin.

I’m shocked, I tell you! Shocked! Just shocked! You mean, you mean, the Juice didn’t do it?

How much did the American taxpayer, er, the terrorists, er, the Arab Authority in the Arab-occupied territories give to Suha Arafat to stage this hoax?

I’m gonna go prostrate myself before the shock prostrates me. Them Juice didn’t do it? Dag! What them Juice coming to these days, man?

I fear for Israel, as it seems their neighbors are whipping-up tons of reasons to attack before Americans elect an adult as POTUS in November.

These are Pallywood’s blacklist days.

If you’re not a hoax-perpetuating, Jew-hating jihadist … you’re blacklisted.

Okay, okay, okay…

So let’s just say for the sake of argument that Mossad did whack Arafat with polonium.

So what?

As I recall, Arafat died of complications of HIV infection.

I can understand why the Paleos would put out a ‘polonium’ lie, since in Arab culture dying of HIV is something of a problem.

And as punfundit points out, it’s better for the Paleos and their friends around the world if they can blame the evil Juice rather than their own failings. That’s true whether we’re talking about the mode of Arafat’s exit or anything else about the Paleos.

Any one care to bet that the polonium found has the same source as used to kill Alexander Litvinenko?

Science! How does it work?

Arafat’s own physician admitted he had AIDS.

At least one Arab country, but definitely Egypt, bugged his room while he was buggering boys on one of his stays there. Now that the Brotherhood is running things, not Mubarak, the threat of blackmail has been effectively erased. Which might, just might, explain the possible timing of this latest nonsense.
