Nabi Musa (Arabic: نبي موسى‎, meaning the "Prophet Moses", also transliterated Nebi Musa) is the name of a site in the Judean desert that popular Palestinian folklore associates with Moses. It is also the name of a 7-day long religious festival that was celebrated annually by Palestinian Muslims, beginning on the Friday before Good Friday in the old Orthodox Greek calendar..Musa (Arabic: موسى‎) is a male Arabic given name, corresponding to Moses, see also Moses in Islam...

The car was removed from the Alma Tunnel crash scene within hours of the accident which also killed Diana's boyfriend Dodi Fayed, and their driver Henri Paul.

It then remained in the Paris area for 8 years before being shipped to England ..

Mr Musa, the owner of Etoile Limousines in Paris, rented the car to Mohamed al Fayed, the Harrod and Paris Ritz owner and Dodi's father.

Mr Musa said: "It is an exceptional wreck - like the one James Dean died in. We were told it was worth at least £1 million. It belongs to us. At first I was thinking it should have been given to Mohamed al Fayed because his son, Dodi, died in it.

"Then I thought maybe it should be put in a museum. Now I want to sell it. We've been told a lot of people would pay a fortune for the wreck. We have never had any firm inquiries about it, but people have spoken to me about how much it could be worth."

The wreckage of the Mercedes limousine in which Princess Diana and her companion, Dodi Fayed died is set to go on sale for a whopping one million pounds. French owner Jean Francois Musa thinks that many firms will be interested to buy the wreckage. Anyhow, this attempt to make money out of a misfortune would definitely hurt Princes’ William and Harry.. The accident took place on August 31, 1997. The care was removed from the Alma Tunnel crash scene within hours of the accident. The wreckage was there in the Paris area for 8 years and was shipped to England .. Presently, the Metropolitan Police have the car garaged at a traffic investigation depot in Charlton, south east London. Musa believes that there are a lot of people who would pay a fortune for the wreck and his lawyer Jean-Luc Marchand is submitting an application to the Appeal Court in Paris for the Mercedes to be returned to him.

To this day butterflies are spoken of as souls of some deceased persons..The revival of Reincarnation, by Madame Blavatsky, and the Theosophists under the eloquent Mrs. Besant, shows the persistency of the idea that so entranced the semi-civilized Irish long ago, and seemed so satisfactory a way to account for the existence of man after death...
The dispute is said to be “devastating” Princes William and Harry, whom royal sources say want the Mercedes disposed of “privately and discreetly”.

Etoile Limousine, based in Paris, is technically the owner of the S-280 that crashed killing Diana, her lover Dodi Fayed and chauffer Henri Paul.

The Paris Ritz, owned by Dodi’s father Mohamed Al Fayed, had hired the car from Etoile Limousine...
