Jerusalem Post: The Murder of Yasser Arafat is ‘compelling’

The Jerusalem Post highlights DeltaFourth’s investigation into Yasser Arafat’s murder. JPost writer Rachel Marder interviews me about The Murder of Yasser Arafat and writes that Matthew Kalman and I have a “compelling explanation [for] the 75-year-old leader’s death near Paris in November 2004 based on years of reporting in Ramallah, Bethlehem, Gaza and Jerusalem and interviews with senior Palestinian officials.” Indeed, we do. So compelling, in fact, that we’ve already heard from people inside the PLO to whom we hadn’t previously spoken about the ra’is‘s demise words to the effect that “Yeah, you got it right…”

The Post’s Marder adds that “The Murder of Yasser Arafat takes readers inside the Palestinian territories and Arafat’s government and considers officials’ motivation for killing the leader…The Murder of Yasser Arafat provides a clear context for understanding the vengeful Arafat and the current Palestinian leadership, who could all have blood on their hands and who know that if Arafat could be assassinated, they, too, are vulnerable.” …Did I mention that this was in The Jerusalem Post? You’d never have guessed, he wrote with a smile.
