Skip to comments.Yasser Arafat to be Exhumed Tuesday, Reopening the Mystery of his Death

Yasser Arafats 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. Arafats French widow, Suha Arafat, has won a court order, and received French support for an examination of her husbands 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.

What mystery? It was queer induced AIDes.. he should have stopped at screwing goats :p
Bet he smells better now than when he was alive.
He may look better now than when alive...
I heard that he died as a result of a car accident. He was rear ended.
Bush’s fault. Darn!
He probably had one too many twinkies and ho-ho’s.
Let’s all hope that this one was Bush’s Fault!
Why are the so-called palestineans involved? Ararat was Egyptian.
The test results will be whatever they want them to be, this is all smoke and mirrors.
So are many of the so-called “palestinians,” especially in that terrorist-riddled Gaza, (and the sooner they get home the better)
Maybe they’re looking to kill him again.
AIDS is so “mysterious.”
If my memory serves me correctly, didn’t the Muslim masses pass his coffin, then his body overhead from person to person in gigantic mob scene for several hours before the corpse could even be taken to the cemetery?
Anything they might want to discover in the body is probably already severely tainted and rotted.
He died of AIDS, triggered by botulism.
You get botulism from bad meat in an old can.
They don’t exhume cesspools, they pump them out!
“Where does the line to piss on his bones form?”
Or will they confirm that he was composed primarily of Pig Excrement!
Exhume away. He died of AIDS.
