Includes Introduction by
Amb. Jeane Kirkpatrick

NEW YORK – The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has issued a new 112-page book, The Case Against Arafat: The Campaign by Yasir Arafat and the Palestinian Authority to Destroy Israel.

The book features an introduction by Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick, who served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 1981-1985. Dr. Kirkpatrick is presently Leavey Professor of Government at Georgetown University and Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

The Case Against Arafat is a timely and hard-hitting expose which reveals how, throughout the more than eight years of the Oslo process, Arafat and his regime have continually violated their Oslo accord obligations by collaborating with terrorists, sheltering terrorist groups, smuggling shiploads of illegal weapons into the areas they control, and actively creating a culture of hatred of Jews and violence against Israel in their official media, school textbooks, summer camps, speeches, and sermons by PA-appointed clergymen.

“The famous signing of the Oslo agreement on the White House lawn in September 1993 was supposed to inaugurate a new era of peace between Arafat and Israel,” ZOA National President Morton A. Klein. “Instead, it merely became a means for Arafat to continue pursuing his lifelong goal of destroying the Jewish State.”

The Case Against Arafat shows how, from 1993-2000, he used a combination of diplomacy and terrorism by Hamas and Islamic Jihad. In 2000, his Palestinian Authority police and security forces, together with his Fatah movement and Force 17, joined the terrorists.

The public debate over future relations between America and the Palestinian Authority is now in full swing. The Case Against Arafat is sure to assume a prominent place in that debate.
