On Army Radio, Erekat Again Accuses Israel of Arafat's Death

The results of an investigation into Yassar Arafat's death are not due for another few months at least, yet Saeb Erekat, the head of the PLO’s negotiations department, continues to harp on the false hope that the investigation will pin the blame on an assassination plot carried out by Israel. 

In an interview Sunday morning with Army Radio, Erekat again made conspiratorial accusations in regards to the death of Arafat, saying he was sure the former PLO Chairman did not die naturally but was killed, all the while implying that Israel was behind it. Erekat added that the November exhumation of Arafat's body will certainly lead to this conclusion.
