In this Middle East book of the year, Rubinstein really does solve the Arafat mystery, -Middle East Quarterly Free .

Drawing on recent, extensive interviews with Arafat, a seasoned Israeli journalist analyzes Arafat's twenty years of leadership of the Palestinians, exposing the true personality behind the carefully crafted, often enigmatic persona.

Danny Rubinstein's book ends with the return of Yasir Arafat to Gaza and the challenges facing the Palestinian leader as he was called upon to transform the organization he built into a state apparatus. Since then, the challenges have multiplied, and the Likud's victory in the Israeli elections has only confirmed the impasse blocking the Palestinian leadership and particularly Arafat.

Danny Rubinstein, in his book “The Mystery of Arafat,” called “this strange phenomenon.

Virtually all the biographies written about him express bewilderment about his actions and character, about what an Israeli author, Danny Rubinstein, in his book “The Mystery of Arafat,” called “this strange phenomenon. ”Many Palestinians compared him to David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s founder and first leader, seeing Mr. Arafat as an Arab pioneer who struggled to lead his people. The face, with its three-day stubble, became visibly lined, his eyes weary. The man who became “Mr. Palestine” was probably not born there.

The chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization has long puzzled observers, including his biographers (note the titles of two books about him published in 1990: "Behind the Myth: Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian Revolution" and "Arafat: In the Eyes of the Beholder"). How has someone so deeply flawed as an individual and a leader managed to achieve so much and acquired so much authority? Rubinstein, a columnist at the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, makes answering this "mystery of Arafat" the goal of his book. "How is it that someone who looks so strange and is so lacking in seriousness can at the same time be considered a statesman and revolutionary of the first order?" In his slight but rich study, Rubinstein takes up basic questions about Arafat: Where was he born? What is his real name? Why does he look so grubby? Why does he travel so maniacally? Why did he get married on the sly?
With brilliant insight, the author shows that every aspect of Arafat's public persona-from his stubbly face to his doing business late at night-fits a single pattern. In all these ways, he has "accurately and persistently . . . reflected the distress and the needs of the Palestinian public." Rubinstein convincingly shows how everything Arafat does (even not shaving) seeks "to provide the Palestinian revolution, of which he is the center, with legitimacy." Arafat's success, in other words, derives from his being able to create a myth in which his own personality fuses with the Palestinian cause. In 1995's Middle East book of the year, idiomatically translated, Rubinstein really does solve the Arafat mystery.

This is a good book. But the real mystery of Arafat is why people liked him? He was a murdered. He murdered jew and gentile alike. He murdered arabs, americans and orientals.

He was evil.
Thomand
Arafat was an evil man. In his life, what did he achieve? He killed a lot of Americans and Israelis.
