The Faces of Arafat


Episode Info

Brought to video by PBS, Frontline: The Faces of Arafat turns the scope on the controversial leader of the Palestinian movement, Yasir Arafat. This profile explores the PLO chairman's commitment to the ongoing world peace initiative -- the same resolve that led to Arafat's Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 along with fellow recipients, Israelis Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres. Correspondent Marie Colvin looks at Arafat, from his historic denunciation of terrorism to his acknowledgement of Israel's right to exist.
