PA daily: Israel poisoned Arafat and is likely to assassinate Abbas

Headline: "Liberman and the replacement game"
Excerpt of op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily
 "Israeli Minister of Death (sic., Minister of Defense) Avigdor Liberman gave an extensive political interview to the Al-Quds newspaper that is published in Jerusalem on Monday, last Oct. 24 (sic., 2016), in which he attacked [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas and called to 'replace him' with a new leadership…
Anyone who will go back and review what happened to the late president, the symbol Yasser Arafat (that in a few days it will be 12 years since his death as a Martyr) [parentheses in source], can understand the Israeli method of dealing with the Palestinian leaders in general and with the decision makers in particular. There is no need to remind the Palestinians and the Israelis of the cruel campaign against the symbol Yasser Arafat until he was brought for burial after being poisoned by the Israeli intelligence and the mercenary henchmen."

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman gave an interview to the Palestinian newspaper
Al-Quds on Oct. 24, 2016, in which he said he supports the two-state solution and promised to build a port and airport in Gaza if Hamas stops rearming and attacking Israel.
