Dimona ? Mosad? Russian reactor? French reactor? American reactor? Where does one find polonium? Picogram quatities kill? How to handle polonium? Administer polonium? KGB did this once before? Possible to infect with HIV? Equally destructive? Mis-translations – like the Iranian death threats? After Arafat’s death did much change? Will this “tempest in a tea pot” matter much after the crash of the U.S. Dollar? Does his death matter to China?
Set aside fixating on Russia for a moment….asking “cui bono?” who benefits…surely not Russia which had long supported Arafat/PLO….instead I suggest you review the obvious…Israeli history…with its long long list of known assassination targets and devious treatment of prisoners, foe and friends alike.
According to the book The Bomb in the Basement, several Israeli deaths (1957–1969) were caused by 210Polonium.
In mid1957 the Weizmann Institute lab was found to be contaminated. Traces of 210Po were found on the hands of professor Dror Sadeh, a physicist who researched radioactive materials for their “program”. Repeated medical tests indicated no harm, but their tests did not include bone marrow. Sadeh died from cancer.
One of his students died of leukemia, and two colleagues died after a few years, both from cancer.
When the contamination was discovered Dror and his wife, Haya kept the entire scandal a secret from friends and family; it was the 1st nuclear “accident” in Israel, and was never before disclosed according to the author.
We will not forget street attack by Mossad in Jordan, who injected Hamas spokesman, Khalid Mishal with a deadly (unknown) toxin, but quick capture of his assailants allowed for information in exchange for those attempted assassins. Mishals’ predecessor and dozens of comrades had already been assassinated by Israel and the world has witnessed the results of mossad’s established (EJA) extra judicial assassinations over the years.
It is nearly certain that further testing could reveal the fingerpint of the perpetrators’ Isotope.
Of the Weizmann Institute lab contamination – investigated secretly- of course- there was never any formal ‘admission’ that a connection between the contamination & premature cancer deaths had existed including that of Dror et al because to acknowledge that would be to admit have a nuclear weapons program.
