36. Cremation is against his religion--can't do that without risking MAJOR "fundie" backlash.

I think they should either try to find something in the metro DC area near the uncle, or in an area of large Muslim population such as Michigan or California (and leave the grave unmarked); mail the corpse home to Russia; or do the "Bin Ladin solution"--burial at sea. Given the circumstances, I think the third choice is the best.

Perhaps the Russians have a warship in Havana or at sea that can swing by, pick the guy up, and dump him outside the 200 mile limit.

That is not an optimal solution in terms of Islamic burial practices, but it is prescribed IF there is concern that the body will not lie safely in the grave, that someone might dig it up and desecrate it or use it in a mocking fashion.

I think this guy's situation fits that bill.
