Ion Miha Papeca er den højest rangerende østblokspion, der nogensinde flygtede til vesten under den kolde krig. Han skriver i sin bog: Red Horizons: Chronicles of a Communist Spy Chief om Yassir Arafat:
“I just called the microphone monitoring center to ask about the ‘Fedayee,'” Arafat’s code name, explained Munteaunu. “After the meeting with the Comrade, he went directly to the guest house and had dinner. At this very moment, the ‘Fedayee’ is in his bedroom making love to his bodyguard. The one I knew was his latest lover. He’s playing tiger again. The officer monitoring his microphones connected me live with the bedroom, and the squawling almost broke my eardrums. Arafat was roaring like a tiger, and his lover yelping like a hyena.”
Munteaunu continued: “I’ve never before seen so much cleverness, blood and filth all together in one man.”
“The report was indeed an incredible account of fanaticism, of devotion to his cause, of tangled oriental political maneuvers, of lies, of embezzled PLO funds deposited in Swiss banks, and of homosexual relationships, beginning with his teacher when he was a teen-ager and ending with his current bodyguards. After reading the report, I felt a compulsion to take a shower whenever I had been kissed by Arafat, or even just shaken his hand.”
Ikke så mærkeligt at Arafat ville betale 1 million dollars for hans hoved. Og måske besvarer det rygterne om, hvad Arafat døde af?
