Yasser Arafat has been a key figure in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict for more than thirty years. In the 1950s, he helped to found the Palestinian National Liberation Movement (Fatah), an underground group that went on to commit many terrorist acts. Arafat became leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1968. In 1993 he met with Israeli leaders Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres to forge the Oslo Peace Accords, and the three won the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts. But peace itself has been elusive, and, although Arafat continues to speak out publicly against terrorist acts, the violence in the Middle East continues with no end in sight. Book jacket.
