Who killed Hariri, Who killed Arafat?
According to the August 18, 2020 verdict by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) in The Hague Salim Ayyash was found guilty of killing Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in a suicide car bombing on Feb. 14, 2005. Cui bono?
In early April 2005 the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1595 to form “an investigative team to look into Hariri’s assassination.”
The team’s report submitted to the UNSC in October 2005 pointed to
the role of Syria’s military intelligence. The possible role of Israel
was casually ignored despite the evidence.
The following article documents the targeted assassination of Yasser Arafat which had been ordered by the Israeli Cabinet.

The forensic tests on samples taken from Yasser Arafat’s corpse
by a team of Swiss scientists exhibit high levels of radioactive
polonium-210. The exhumation of his body was implemented in November
2012. The samples revealed “levels of polonium at least 18 times higher
than usual in Arafat’s ribs, pelvis and in soil that absorbed his bodily
These developments raise the broader issue which the media
has failed to address: Who was behind the assassination of Yasser Arafat?
The assassination of Yasser Arafat had been on the drawing board since 1996 under “Operation Fields of Thorns”.
According to an October 2000 document “prepared by the [Israeli] security services, at the request of then Prime Minister Ehud Barak, stated that ‘Arafat, the person, is a severe threat to the security of the state [of Israel] and the damage which will result from his
disappearance is less than the damage caused by his existence’”.
(quoted in Tanya Reinhart, Evil Unleashed, Israel’s move to destroy the Palestinian Authority is a calculated plan, long in the making, Global Research, December 2001. Details of the document were published in Ma’ariv, July 6, 2001.).
In August 2003, Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz declared “all out war” on the militants whom he vowed “marked for death.”
“In mid September, Israel’s government passed a law to get rid of Arafat. Israel’s
cabinet for political security affairs declared it “a decision to remove Arafat as an obstacle to peace.” Mofaz threatened; “we will choose the right way and the right time to kill Arafat.”
Palestinian Minister Saeb Erekat told CNN he thought Arafat was the next target. CNN asked Sharon spokesman Ra’anan Gissan if the vote meant expulsion of Arafat. Gissan clarified; “It doesn’t mean that. The
Cabinet has today resolved to remove this obstacle. The time, the method, the ways by which this will take place will be decided separately, and the security services will monitor the situation and
make the recommendation about proper action.” (See Trish Shuh, Road Map
for a Decease Plan, http://www.mehrnews.com November 9 2005)
The assassination of Arafat was part of the 2001 Dagan Plan.
In all likelihood, it was carried out by Israeli Intelligence.
It was intended to destroy the Palestinian Authority, foment
divisions within Fatah as well as between Fatah and Hamas. Mahmoud Abbas is a Palestinian quisling. He was installed as leader of Fatah, with the approval of Israel and the US, which finance the Palestinian Authority’s paramilitary and security forces.
