The presumption--refutable--is established by the failure of the  
occupation authorities to provide direct physical evidence available  
to them.  Fred adduces in their exculpation some supposed Zionist  
scruples about the family and Palestinian sovereignty.  The murderers  
of Ghanem would feel no scruples about exposing his "autopsied" body  
to show that the organs are still there--if indeed they are.
