Are these Po-210 sources coming from the former USSR countries?
Are these "folks"
trying to use Po-210Be as a neutron initiator for their fission
devices.??? Can't they find

I wonder if that is something to build a conspiracy on. In the video there
is an example saying that they are in the mBq region in their analyses,
which means that there would have been GBq amounts 8 years ago at the time of
Arafats death (which would have been bad, mmmkay?). That's assuming that
the Po-210 is not produced from natural decay. It seems that they rule this
out by saying that the Po-210 is "unsupported". What would that mean
exactly, and how would that be shown? After 20 or so half-lives, it seems to me
that it would be difficult to show anything at all about the chemistry.
Also, what would the natural amount of Po-210 be, compared to their
results... It's impossible to do a proper comparison of course, since it's not
said how they have prepared their samples. Anyway, a quick google search
gives you [http://irpa11.irpa.net/pdfs/6a52.pdf] with some naturally occuring
Po-210 levels. Those do not make the French poisoning theory seem very
plausible to me. Difficult to say without a proper report, though.

It is reported by Al Jazeera that elevated levels of Po-210 were found by
the Institut de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, in some of Arafat's
final personal belongings:
