Arafat’s Secret Diary


Italy’s L’Espresso paper published excerpts from 19 volumes alleged to be the secret diaries of Yasser Arafat between 1985 and 2004.

The diaries discuss terrorist attacks, which Arafat claims he did not order directly but by telling those who proposed them, “You decide!”

It also mentions Arafat’s attempts to stop Saddam Hussein from the “folly” of attacking Kuwait, secret negotiations with Yitzchak Rabin, a description of Shimon Peres as “an excellent person: a beautiful décor,” and his friendship with Fidel Castro.

The diary reveals a deal he made with former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi to testify, in return for cash, that funds Berlusconi was accused of illegally transferring to an Italian political party went to the PLO.

The diaries discuss negotiations between Arafat and the Italian government during the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship when wheelchair-bound Jewish-American citizen Leon Klinghoffer was hurled into the sea by four Palestinian terrorists and reveal that former Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti allowed the escape of the mastermind of the hijacking, Abu Abbas, in return for a promise that no PLO terror would take place on Italian soil.

The volumes were given to a French foundation on condition that they be used for “study documents” and not for books or films.

  1. Nice photo of a couple of murdering dictators who are still viewed by many as “revolutionary heroes” despite the thousands of innocents they’ve slaughtered and the billions of dollars they stole from their own poor.

      • Dear Manipulative Liberal Fascist who calls himself a Cohen, the fact is simple: both Arafat and Castro were murdering dictators – no amount of relativistic blabbering can change that.

        • It’s not worth taking the bait and it’s certainly not worth calling names. I was tempted to respond in kind, e.g. “First prove you exist”, but even that isn’t worth it. Better to just ignore.
