       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 
Americium????   Hmmmm.

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:
