An Islamic Petard for Suha

: "In a related development, relatives of Arafat in the Gaza Strip are demanding that Suha and her daughter move back to the Palestinian areas.
Jarir al-Kidwa, one of Arafat's prominent cousins in Gaza City, said the family wants the two to return home because 'life in Paris contravenes with Islamic morals and traditions.'
Suha and Zahwa, who turns 10 next July, had been living in Paris before they moved to Tunis a year ago. The two were invited by the wife of the Tunisian president to stay in the country, where Zahwa attends a private school.
'We don't want Zahwa to live in Paris and be affected by the climate there,' Kidwa added, claiming that Arafat's daughter was a descendant of one of the nephews of the Prophet Mohammed.
Kidwa, 80, said the family set up a 10-member committee to seek custody over Arafat's daughter so that she could be raised in an Islamic and Arabic environment. He said the team had contacted a number of lawyers in France to file a lawsuit against Suha, asking that she hand her daughter over to them."
