The thread is about proving the Palestinian claim that Israel poisoned Arafat was a lie. It has NOTHING to do with all the so-called Anti-Semetic stuff.
Making a thread about falsified claims against Israel (you know, that state full of primarily Jewish people with a Jewish political leadership) that were exposed to be unfounded and based upon bias, then complaining when the influence of anti-Jewish prejudice is discussed is somewhat silly. Unless you clearly set out at the beginning that this is not to be a thread about anti-semitism.

I also agree this is better suited to the politics forum.

I posted here because it has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS!!!!

It has everything to do with a claim by Palestinians that Arafat was poisoned by Israel - a clear effort to stir up conflict in the area.

Sadly, a number of posters have tried to hijack it for political purposes.

However, if a Moderator wants to move it - that's their prerogative.

That, by definition, is a political move.

I'm not a huge fan of either Israel or Palestine. When Arafat died, I knew that the allegations of Israeli involvement would soon follow, but logically speaking, what would Israel stand to gain by assassinating an old man in failing health who was already politically marginalized by other Palestinian groups relative to the potential backlash is they did indeed kill him?
