Yasser Arafat was born in Cairo (1929). There is information that the Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini was his grand uncle. As the founder of Al-Fatah (Kuwait, 1959), he succeeded Pan-Arab Ahmad Shukheiri as leader of the PLO after their defeat in 1967. In Nov/13/1974 he was received in the General Assembly of the UN as “chief of state” after 105 countries voted in his favor (an Arab-Islamic-Soviet-non-aligned alliance, together with other dictatorships). He appeared as challenging with his Kefia by saying: “I come with an olive branch in one hand and with a gun of the fighters for freedom in the other. Do not allow the olive branch fall from my hand”. The PLO began operating from Cairo and later moved to Jordan (at the end of the 1960s). They were expelled by the King of Jordan after Black September and then Israel expelled them from Lebanon in 1982, and later agonized from Tunisia after supporting Saddam Hussein in the 1991 War of the Persian Gulf.
After it was cornered and far from the power, the PLO decided to formally recognize Israel and declared that they would abandon the use of force. After signing the treaty, Yasser Arafat repeated several times that he had imitated the prophet Mohammed in their Hudaybyah agreement (628), Hudna (Truce) that he could violate if it favored Islam. In 2000, after rejecting the concessions of Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak (Camp David), he returned to terrorism and began the Second Intifada (2000-2005). He died in 2004. Of the 5.5 billion dollars raised by international aid and taxes during 1994- 2003, Arafat took great quantities. At the time of his death, his inheritance was in dispute. They had to convince and threaten his wife, Suha, to deliver Arafat’s hidden money to the Palestinian people.
