Synopsis

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, the Mossad placed a bomb in a book (the memoirs of Che Guevara) and sent it 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.

BASSAM ABU SHARIF is a former senior adviser to the late Yasser Arafat and press officer of the PLO. Formerly a member of PFLP, Abu Sharif was dubbed the 'face of terror' by Time Magazine for his role in the 1970 hijackings of four planes that led to Black September. He is the co-author, with former Israeli intelligence officer Uzi Mahnaimi, of Best of Enemies about their roles in Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts. A member of the National Council of Palestine, he lives in Amman and Ramallah.
