He won't miss it

Looters steal Arafat's Nobel Peace Prize.
According to the Fatah spokesman, the raid on Arafat's house, which has been empty since 2001, occurred despite promises from Syria-based Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal to prevent such an attack.

"The Palestinian people will never forgive the Hamas gangs for looting the home of the Palestinian people's great leader, Yasser Arafat," Abdel Rahman said. "This crime will remain a stain of disgrace on the forehead of Hamas and its despicable gangs."
Considering that the Palestinian people are the same people who raided Arafat's digs, I imagine that this won't trouble most of them too much.
Eyewitnesses told The Jerusalem Post that dozens of Palestinians participated in the raid, which took place late Friday.

"Most of the looters were just ordinary citizens," they said. "They stole almost everything, including furniture, tiles, water pipes, closets and beds."

They also stole Suha's shoes which I'm guessing she can live without, since she's been living in Paris for the past 12 years.
