A sister of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is not among those, including his widow, calling for the Palestinian Authority to exhume the body in the wake new questions about his death.
"Leave him to rest in his soil,” Khadija Arafat said Thursday, saying she has been overwhelmed with media inquiries following an Al Jazeera investigation that raised the possibility Arafat was poisoned.
"Would exhuming his body bring him back to life?" she said. "Let him be comfortable where he's lying ... To satisfy my conscious and my brother in his grave, let's not talk about exhuming his body."
Think, first the supposed poisoning actually was used in a cultural construction to compare him to Mohammed who was Islamic sources relate was poisoned by a Jewish woman.
And now, I think, the exhumation would compare his the the resurrection of Jesus.
