Islam Online: Assad Accuses Israel of Killing Arafat

Here is an accusation that has been heard before:
Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad stressed on Saturday, January 21, that his country’s sovereignty must be respected in the probe into the murder of ex-premier Rafiq Hariri and accused Israel of assassinating late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat . . .

"Of the many assassinations that Israel carried out in a methodical and organized way, the most dangerous thing that Israel did was the assassination of President Yasser Arafat," he told an attentive gathering.

"This was under the world's gaze and its silence, and not one state dared to issue a statement or stance towards this, as though nothing happened."
