Were Arafat and Litvinenko killed by the same people?

In Guilt By Association, a thoroughly researched analysis of a transnational crime syndicate whose members “share an ideological bias sympathetic to Israel,” Jeff Gates challenged the consensus view on the murder of former KGB colonel Alexander Litvinenko. Questioning the media’s eagerness to link Litvinenko’s poisoning to former KGB colonel Vladimir Putin, Gates suggested:

Who, if not the syndicate profiled in this account had the means, motive and opportunity to murder Litvinenko in London? Two days after Khodorkovsky lieutenant Leonid Nevzlin arrived at Newark airport on Christmas Eve 2006, Russian Prosecutor General Yury Chaika issued a press release identifying Nevzlin as a murder suspect in the Litvinenko poisoning and seeking his extradition. Litvinenko met with Nevzlin in Israel just weeks before his death.

The recent Al Jazeera investigation indicating that Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat may have been killed by the same toxic substance as Litvinenko lends further credence to Gates’ suspicions. Rather than follow this obvious path of inquiry, however, the Israel-friendly media are far more likely to blame Putin for Arafat’s death.
