When Arafat died, there were quite a few rumours regarding the cause passed off as truth. Let’s recall a few:
*PLO hardliner Faruq Qaddumi: “The poison was administered in the food and in the medication he swallowed,”
*Ahmed Abdel Rrahman, Yasser Arafat’s cabinet secretary: “the President was exposed to something, and I’m inclined to believe it was maybe gas or something else. I don’t know about all the types of poisons, but there are some 700 that are unknown.”
Attallah Quiba, the Palestinian ambassador in Sri Lanka: Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was killed by unnamed Israelis using advanced technology.
Anyhow, the Grand Muffti of Jewlicious wants to know: why are we always left out of the fun?
And so he is initiating the Who Most Likely Put Sharon in a Coma? Contest! Use your imagination! Use your wit! But most of all, forgo plausibility and veridicality. Only then can we expose the crucial roles that Vladimir Putin, Arafat’s ghost, Mr. Potato Head, Abe Foxman and nuclear-lazer-electo-rays in the decline of Israel’s controversial PM? Winner gets a T.B.A. prize, though there is a fairly plausible conspiracy theory to the effect that the prize comprises Muffti’s respect and admiration. And mabye CKs. But probably not Esther’s unless Jdate is invovled somehow.
