Mossad Killed PFLP Operative Wadia Haddad With Poisoned Chocolate In The Late 1970s

For sure, all those conspiracies about Israel poisoned Arafat are going to start again soon:

The Associated Press is reporting on a new book "striking back"written by Aaron Klein - the Jerusalem Bureau Chief of WorldNetDaily.com and also a correspondent for the Time Magazine -

Klein describes how the Mossad tracked down Wadia Haddad, an operative of the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) in Baghdad, where Haddad hided after the 'Entebbe airplane hijacking'

Poison a sophisticated weapon for Israeli intelligence

Suspected in multiple hijackings, including the 1976 takeover of an Air France airplane in Entebbe, Uganda, Haddad knew from the Israeli tactics that he could be shot or bombed as he walked the street or when picking up a phone.

Haddad was cautious of his every move, avoiding travel outside of Iraq, said Klein, a Time magazine correspondent in Jerusalem. But the 140-kilogram (309 pounds) food lover had a weakness: chocolate.

In Baghdad of 1977, luxuries like fine chocolates were rare. Through a Palestinian working with the Mossad who had gotten close to Haddad, the agency was able to feed Haddad chocolate brought from Belgium and spread with poison over six months, Klein said.

Haddad died in March 1978, showing only symptoms of leukemia but no signs of poisoning, Klein told the radio.

Aaron Klein said, the Mossad's ability to poison has improved drastically over the years.


In 1997, Mossad agents in Jordan injected

with a poison that would have killed him within 24 hours.


But....the plot was discovered, and Jordan arrested two Mossad agents who had engaged in the attempt.

Jordan's King Hussein together with U.S. President Bill Clinton then demanded that Benjamin Netanyahu provide an antidote quickly enough. Israel did so.

Also, a prisioner exchange was arranged and Israel had to release the so called "spiritual leader" of Hamas, Ahmed Yassin, who was serving a life sentence in an Israeli prison to get the two arrested Mossad agents back to Israel.

(Yassin was then killed in an IAF attack on 22-Mar-2004)
