Conquest (English Edition) for early readers ᇥ PDF Author Efraim Karsh ቂ Middle East scholar Karsh Fabricating Israeli History makes a lively case that Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat never intended to fulfill any of his peace commitments, and has in fact used peace as a strategic deception aimed at promoting the eternal goal of Israel s destruction After sketching Arafat s pre 1993 history in a couple of chapters, the author focuses most of the book on the decade since the signing of the historic Oslo peace accords In those years, he writes, inside the Palestinian territories, Arafat has imposed an oppressive and corrupt regime in the worst tradition of Arab dictatorships Outside, meanwhile, he has unleashed waves of violence on Israel, deliberately choosing to make violence the defining characteristic of his rule The author draws on Arabic, Hebrew and English language sources to give what may be the most comprehensive account yet of certain events like the Palestinian leadership s five years of maneuvering to avoid canceling, as promised, the parts of the Palestinian National Covenant that call for Israel s destruction Karsh s conclusion is that both Arafat and his tainted Palestinian Authority must go Many will disagree with the author, particularly because he appears to blame the failure of peace entirely on the Palestinian side, with almost no mention of Israeli settlement building But the book is well argued, fast paced and engaging enough for those with a casual interest Karsh, head of Mediterranean studies at King s College, University of London, has a stronger point of view than the Rubins, and covers recent events in greater detail Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.In characterizing himself as the most important person in the Middle East equation, Yasir Arafat has not given all students of his life reason to rejoice Far otherwise The authors of these two books probing Arafat s unlikely career see in his status only a tragically diminished likelihood for regional peace.In the shorter and narrowly focused book, Karsh examines Arafat s dubious role in the Palestinian uprising the al Aqsa Intifada that began in September 2000 and has greatly reduced the hopes for peace raised by the Oslo Accords of the 1990s Adducing compelling evidence, Karsh depicts Arafat as the mastermind who planned the al Aqsa Intifada including the suicide bombings, drive by shootings, and lynchings long before he found it convenient to describe the orchestrated violence as a spontaneous national response to Ariel Sharon s pre approved visit to Temple Mount The al Aqsa Intifada thus fits into a cynical larger strategy which Karsh chillingly limns in Arafat s own words for using peace negotiations as a temporary gambit in enlarging and solidifying the machinery necessary to destroy the state of Israel Because most Palestinians want peace, Karsh does not blame them for their leader s perfidy But he does blame Israeli leaders and the international community, accusing them of almost criminal naivete in affording Arafat repeated openings to work his black magic.Sharp criticism of Israeli and international leaders also frames the much fuller portrait of Arafat offered by the Rubins Like Karsh, the Rubins portray Arafat as treacherous, tracing his malign influence back much further than the al Aqsa Intifada, marshalling compelling evidence of Arafat s complicity in numerous earlier atrocities, including the 1972 outrage at the Munich Olympics and the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro But the Rubins also show how for all his cunning Arafat has repeatedly sabotaged his own projects through inexplicable arrogance and tactical foolishness Yet even when he alienated most Arab leaders by applauding Iraq s 1990 invasion of Kuwait, Arafat managed yet again to survive The Rubins attribute Arafat s staying power to his tyrannical control of all Palestinian institutions and his adept manipulation of Western credulity Some will disagree with the authors conclusions about their subject, but there can be no doubt that this political biography makes a strong and compelling case for its position Bryce
