Arafat, Yasser (1929 – 2004)

Arafat succinctly states his political objectives in 1979

A scarce typed letter signed by Arafat, 27th February 1979.

The P.L.O. leader writes, in part, ‘We hope that you interest includes knowing about the cause of the Palestinian people and the injustices incurred upon him [sic] by the racist expansionist Zionist state of “Israel”. Our Palestinian people is struggling for the redression [sic] of these injustices by the liberation of our homeland Palestine and the restoration of our inalienable national rights.’

Letter folds, with some slight paper loss towards the right-hand side, otherwise in fine condition.
