Palestinian Authority Minister: Jews Killed Arafat as They did Prophet Muhammad (VIDEO)
Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash said in a recent sermon broadcast on Palestinian TV that Jews killed Yasser Arafat, just as they killed the Prophet Muhammad.
“We don’t have the slightest doubt that they (the Jews/Israelis) killed him (Arafat). One way or another, they killed him. Even Allah’s Messenger (Muhammad) – they (Jews) killed him with poison,” Al-Habbash said.
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) first reported on the video showing Al-Habbash making the comments. PMW noted that Al-Habbash’s comments regarding the Prophet Muhammad kept to the tenets of the Muslim faith.
“According to the Hadith (sayings and practices attributed to Islam’s Prophet Muhammad), a Jewish woman in the Jewish town of Khaibar served Muhammad poisoned meat. On his deathbed three years later, Muhammad told his wife Aisha that the pain he was experiencing was caused by the poisoned meat that he was given by the Jews,” PMW said.
Since his death in 2004 various theories as to the cause of Arafat’s death have kept the terror patriarch in the headlines. In 2007, it was reported that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas had confirmed to Ahmad Jibril, founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, that Arafat died of AIDS, contracted during a homosexual liaison. More recently, Arafat’s widow, aided by Al Jazeera, exhumed Arafat’s body to test his remains for poison, in the form of a radioactive element used to kill a Russian enemy of Premier Vladimir Putin.
Swiss and Russian teams published the results of these tests earlier this month. The Swiss team concluded that the tests were “coherent with a hypothesis of poisoning.” However, a member of the team also stated that “our study did not permit us to demonstrate categorically the hypothesis of poisoning by polonium.” The Russian report concluded that “there was insufficient evidence to support the theory that Yasser Arafat died in 2004 by polonium poisoning.”
