Signature of the PLO Chairman, with a transmittal letter signed by Sami Musallam, Director of the Chairman's Office.
Signature: "Yasser Arafat", 6x4¼. Accompanied by original typed transmittal letter from the Chairman's Office, Palestine Liberation Organization, sent from Tunis, October 18, 1988, signed "Sami Musallam", Director of Chairman's Office. Yasser Arafat (1929-2004), who fought to secure a homeland for the Palestinian people, won the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize (with Israeli Prime Minister Rabin and Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres) "for his efforts to create peace in the Middle East". The Oslo accords that the three had signed were seen at the time as a breakthrough toward an independent Palestinian state and a permanent peace with Israel, although many Israelis considered Arafat to be a terrorist and roadblock to peace and Arafat would not live to see a separate Palestinian state. Arafat had first been elected to head the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1969, and in 1974 Arab leaders recognized the group as "the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people". In 2000, at a summit at Camp David, Arafat turned down a U.S. backed proposal to settle the continuing conflict with Israel, and he was confined by Israel to his West Bank compound in Ramallah in December 2001. Arafat's situation was further complicated by emergence of a rival group, the more radical Palestinian movement, Hamas. Arafat died in Paris, where he had sought medical treatment for an unspecified illness, at the age of 75. New evidence emerging in 2012 suggests that Arafat may have been poisoned. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
