Rate this:
Bassam Abu Sharif was one of the most notorious and dangerous terrorists in the sixties and seventies, acting as "minister of propaganda" for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and as a recruiter for terrorists (including Carlos the Jackal). In 1972, a bomb was placed in a book (the memoirs of Che Guevara) and sent to him, leaving him half-blind, deaf in one ear, and almost fingerless. He later became one of Arafat's closest advisers and one of the minds behind the Oslo Peace Treaty between Israel and the PLO. This is his first-hand account of the inner-working of Arafat's regime, the PLO, Fatah and the relationship that allowed Abu Sharif to encourage important strides toward peace. In taking readers behind the scenes of all the major events in thirty years of Middle East politics, Abu Sharif delivers a unique living history of Palestine.--Publisher description.
