Arafat exhumation 'painful but necessary': widow

asser Arafat's widow said on Thursday that next week's exhumation of the late Palestinian leader was "very painful" but also necessary because of suspicions Israel poisoned him.

"It is very painful. It is a shock, and it is not easy for myself or my daughter," Suha Arafat told AFP in the West Bank capital of Ramallah from where Arafat governed until his death in a French hospital in November 2004. "But if you must know the truth, it is necessary for our people, for the families of the martyrs of Gaza," she said in reference to the 163 Palestinians who died in the course of Israel's week-long Gaza air campaign. "We must do it to turn the page on the great secrecy surrounding his death," Suha added in an interview with AFP. "If there was a crime, it must be solved."
....

But many Palestinian believed he was poisoned by the Israelis. That theory gained ground in July, when Al-Jazeera television reported Swiss findings showing abnormal quantities of the radioactive substance polonium on Arafat's personal effects.

2. The resurrection is impractical once the molecular structure of the brain has been altered.

3. 'Painful but necessary?' Bullshit. This is propaganda and profiteering.

Propaganda to "prove" Arafat died of anything besides natural causes, and profiteering by Arafat's widow, I guess all that money she has squirreled away Arafat stole isn't enough.
