#1 The Turks also claim to have King David's sword and John the Baptist's head among the other sacred relics in the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul.
I've been waiting for the salafis to bomb this place since they (the Salafis) believe the display of sacred relics leads to the worship of sacred relics which in turn is the worst form of polytheism. But so far, the Salafis have found other things to bomb.

#4 I can find a Mo-hair jacket on E-Bay. Wonder what that's worth to them

#5 Any DNA to be gotten from the hair? If so, here is a buisness idea...PCR up the DNA and transfect pigs with some of the genes. Pig meat will become sacred. One could then open up some restaurants throughout the Middle East and sell Mo-ham and cheese sandwiches.

#6 I would suspect Mo's DNA would lack some chromosomes from modern human DNA

#7 Despite the freezing weather, thousands of Chechens, including Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, met the hairs at the airport and in the city's streets.
