Arafat Killed By High Tech Laser Attack

At a news conference on March 18th, the Palestinian ambassador in Sri Lanka, Attallah Quiba, claimed that two Israelis attempted to assassinate Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. The Malaysian National News Agency reported that Quiba stated that they "used a laser device to attack Arafat." Quiba said "they tried to flee after using the device but were wrestled down by the Palestinian Authority security personnel."

Fortunately, the well known Palestinian cameraman Talal Abu Rahma was at the scene of the attack and he was able to get a shot of one of the assassins just as he was taking aim to fire the laser weapon in the attempt on Arafat's life.

In the melee that ensued after Arafat was fired upon, the Zionist killer dropped his weapon. The crack Palestinian Authority forensics team was able to snap a photo of the laser weapon before it disappeared in the confusion.

Quiba did not explain why an attack with a high tech laser did not kill Arafat immediately. But he did state that the two Israeli assassins "were carrying Canadian passports." The Canadian government has not yet responded to a request to explain why two of its citizens are Israeli assassins.
