Yasser Arafat to be Exhumed Tuesday, Reopening the Mystery of his Death
The Globe and Mail ^ | Saturday, Nov. 24 2012

Yasser Arafat’s death always has been shrouded in mystery.

Now his remains and entire tomb are shrouded in tarps as the Palestinian Authority has given permission for his body to be exhumed Tuesday from its burial place below a memorial in the muqata, the Palestinian presidential headquarters. After a lengthy legal and diplomatic process, Mr. Arafat’s French widow, Suha Arafat, has won a court order, and received French support for an examination of her husband’s body to determine if the iconic figure had been poisoned, as long has been rumored.

The leader of the Fatah resistance movement, chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization and first president of the Palestinian Authority, died in Paris in 2004. He was 75 and had been moved to the French capital from this Palestinian city, suffering from some unknown illness.

The expansive white marble site, a popular spot for tourists and a required stop for foreign dignitaries, looks today more like a construction site , with gravel and dirt piled outside the walls as the plastic tarps flap in the chilly wind.

Port Said Road, which runs along the southern side of the compound and provides pedestrian access to the grave, has been closed to traffic and guards are suspicious of a journalist making notes and interviewing passersby.

No matter how he died, all that matters is that he is dead and the world is a better place for it.

They’ll find whatever they want to find- probably whatever is calculated to whip up the biggest hate-Israel frenzy possible.

It won’t be reported what he really died of - A.I.D.S.

They can dig up his bones, but his soul is in the Lake of Fire.

Death is natures way of telling you to slow down. Or. I’m going to take it real easy until I die then I’ll taper off.

As long as they have him on the table they ought to rip out those gold teeth and bridge work. They could also remove his fingers and toes and auction them to the goatherd devout as relics.

Every once in a while, I get an email from Suha, inviting me to share with her the entire assets of the PA, if I would only send her all my bank routing numbers, so that she can deposit the $$$$$$$$$$ into my bank account.

I didn’t know she was Nigerian.
