    "A magnificent mausoleum was built over the grave of Yasser Arafat in the courtyard of the Muqata in Ramallah ..." Yes, they made sure that the mausoleum is magnificent to make it impossible for anyone to exhume the body - if the body is there in the first place! (1) Building mausoleums over someone's grave is against Islamic teachings. Even the late king of Saudia Arabia was burried in an anonymous and unmarked grave! The idea is not to turn a grave into a "holy" place because all men are created equal and graves drive that point home! (2) When Arafat's casket was delivered to Ramallah in a Jordanian helicopter, no one was allowed to view the body - as is normally done with all heads of states. The casket could've been full of rocks! Abbas was the head of a delegation that visited Arafat's bed in the French hospital. He agreed to pay Suha large sums of money to buy her silence. The PLO gang knows a lot more than they wish to admit!
