Here’s the full report from Al Jazeera. Watch the video and decide for yourself. Seems a little conspiratorial to me. But you never know. I certainly wouldn’t put it past the Israelis — they were at an impasse and Arafat was blocking the road to peace. It wouldn’t surprise me if they ‘did something about it’ with a wink and a nod.
It will be interesting to see how much, if any, traction this gets in the Western and Israeli press.
