Weekend as Yasser's?

Palestinians are still pushing to have Arafat's bones dug up and analyzed for possible polonium poisoning. I say why stop there? Why not have his bones take over PA leadership? Even without any pulse, or, for that matter, any flesh, Arafat is a far more commanding figure than that deadhead Abbas.

Update: Jonathan S. Tobin writes
there should be no doubt that the man who died in Lausanne in November 2004 was responsible for the slaughter of countless thousands, the introduction of new and fiendish methods of terrorism and for preventing any hope of peace between the Palestinians and Israel. The Palestinians would do better to examine their own failed and distorted political culture that makes peace impossible rather than worry about who killed the man who put them in the impossible position in which they still find themselves.
