Rising from the dead

Years ago I remember watching a film clip of a Hamas member’s funeral. The body was wrapped in a shroud and every now and then, the ‘dead martyr’ would accidently slide off the stretcher. When that happened, the ‘dead martyr’ would unceremoniously rise from the ground and climb back on the stretcher so the funeral procession could carry on as if nothing untoward had happened. So why this trip down memorial lane? Arutz Sheva:
(IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority armed forces arrested a senior Hamas terrorist in Shechem on Monday. The detainee was identified as 36-year-old Rajab Ash-Sharif, who has been considered dead for more than seven years.
