Romanian intelligence chief Ion Mihai Pacepa in The Wall Street Journal Online back in 2003 clarified Arafat’s Russian connections. Mr. Pacepa was the highest ranking intelligence officer ever to have defected from the former Soviet bloc. The author of "Red Horizons" (Regnery, 1987), he is finishing a book on the origins of current anti-Americanism. As Romania’s former spy chief, Pacepa has read Arafat’s KGB file. He says that Arafat was a KGB agent. According to Pacepa, Arafat “is a career terrorist, trained, armed and bankrolled by the Soviet Union and its satellites for decades.”

TheIsraeli government has vowed to expel Yasser Arafat, calling him an "obstacle" topeace. But the 72-year-old Palestinian leader is much more than that; he is a careerterrorist, trained, armed and bankrolled by the Soviet Union and its satellites fordecades.Before I defected to America from Romania, leaving my post as chief of Romanianintelligence, I was responsible for giving Arafat about $200,000 in laundered cash every
 
month throughout the 1970s. I also sent two cargo planes to Beirut a week, stuffedwith uniforms and supplies. Other Soviet bloc states did much thesame. Terrorism hasbeen extremely profitable for Arafat. According to Forbes magazine, he is today thesixth wealthiest among the world's "kings, queens & despots," with more than $300million stashed in Swiss bank accounts.* * *"I invented the hijackings [of passenger planes]," Arafat bragged when I first met himat his PLO headquarters in Beirut in the early 1970s. He gestured toward the little redflags pinned on a wall map of the world that labeled Israel as "Palestine." "There theyall are!" he told me, proudly. The dubious honor of inventing hijacking actually goes tothe KGB, which first hijacked a U.S.passenger plane in 1960 to Communist Cuba. Arafat's innovation was the suicidebomber, a terror concept that would come to fullflower on 9/11.In 1972, the Kremlin put Arafat and his terror networks high on all Soviet blocintelligence services' priority list, including mine. Bucharest's role was to ingratiate himwith the White House. We were the bloc experts at this. We'd already had greatsuccess in making Washington--as well as most of the fashionable left-leaning American academics of the day--believe that NicolaeCeausescu was, like Josip BrozTito, an "independent" Communist with a "moderate" streak.KGB chairman Yuri Andropov in February 1972 laughed to me about the Yankeegullibility for celebrities. We'd outgrown Stalinist cults of personality, but those crazy Americans were still naïve enough to revere national leaders. We would make Arafatinto just such a figurehead and gradually move the PLO closerto power and statehood. Andropov thought that Vietnam-weary Americans would snatch at the smallest sign of conciliation to promote Arafat from terrorist to statesman intheir hopes for peace.Right after that meeting, I was given the KGB's "personal file" on Arafat. He was anEgyptian bourgeois turned into a devoted Marxist by KGB foreign intelligence. The KGBhad trained him at its Balashikha special-ops school east ofMoscow and in the mid-1960s decided to groom him as the future PLO leader.First, the KGB destroyed theofficial records of Arafat's birth in Cairo, replacing them with fictitious documents sayingthat he had been born in Jerusalem and was therefore a Palestinian by birth.The KGB's disinformation department then went to work on Arafat's four-page tractcalled "Falastinuna" (Our Palestine), turning it into a 48-page monthly magazine for thePalestinian terrorist organization al-Fatah. Arafat had headed al-Fatah since 1957. TheKGB distributed it throughout the Arab world and inWest Germany, which in those daysplayed host to many Palestinian students. The KGB was adept at magazine publicationand distribution; it had many similar periodicals in various languages for its frontorganizations in Western Europe,like the World Peace Council and the WorldFederation of Trade Unions.Next, the KGB gave Arafat an ideology and an image, just as it did for loyal Communistsin our international front organizations.High-minded idealism held no mass-appeal inthe Arab world, so the KGB remolded Arafat as a rabid anti-Zionist.They also selected a
 
"personal hero" for him--the Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini, the man who visited Auschwitz in the late 1930s andreproached the Germans for not having killed evenmore Jews. In 1985 Arafat paid homage to the mufti, saying he was "proud no end" tobe walking in his footsteps. Arafat was an important undercover operative for the KGB.Right after the 1967 Six Day Arab-Israeli war, Moscow got him appointed to chairman of the PLO. Egyptian rulerGamal Abdel Nasser, a Soviet puppet, proposed the appointment. In 1969 the KGBasked Arafat to declare war on American "imperial-Zionism" during the first summit of the Black TerroristInternational, a neo-Fascist pro-Palestine organization financed bythe KGB and Libya's Moammar Gadhafi. It appealed to him so much, Arafat laterclaimed to have invented the imperial-Zionist battle cry. But in fact, "imperial-Zionism"was a Moscow invention, a modern adaptation of the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion,"andlong a favorite tool of Russian intelligence to foment ethnic hatred. The KGB alwaysregarded anti-Semitism plus anti-imperialism as a rich source of anti-Americanism.The KGB file on Arafat also said that in the Arab world only people who were truly goodat deception could achieve high status. We Romanians were directed to help Arafatimprove "his extraordinary talent for deceiving." The KGB chief of foreign intelligence,General Aleksandr Sakharovsky, ordered us to provide cover for Arafat's terroroperations, while at the same time building up his international image. "Arafat is abrilliant stage manager," his letter concluded, "and we should put him to good use." InMarch 1978 I secretly brought Arafat to Bucharest for final instructions on how tobehave in Washington. "Yousimply have to keep on pretending that you'll break withterrorism and that you'll recognize Israel--over, and over, and over," Ceausescu toldhim for the umpteenth time. Ceausescu was euphoric over the prospect that both Arafat and he might be able to snag a Nobel Peace Prize with their fake displays of theolive branch.In April 1978 I accompanied Ceausescu to Washington, where he charmed PresidentCarter. Arafat, he urged, would transform his brutal PLO into a law-abidinggovernment-in-exile if only the U.S. would establish official relations. The meeting wasa great success for us. Carter hailed Ceausescu, dictator of themost repressive policestate in EasternEurope, as a "great national and international leader" who had "takenon a role of leadership in the entire international community." Triumphant, Ceausescubrought home a joint communiqué in which the American president stated that hisfriendly relationswithCeausescu served "the cause of the world."* * *Three months later I was granted political asylum by the U.S. Ceausescu failed to gethis Nobel Peace Prize.But in 1994 Arafat got his--all because he continued to play therole we had given him toperfection. He had transformed his terrorist PLO into agovernment-in-exile (the Palestinian Authority), alwayspretending to call a halt toPalestinian terrorism while letting it continue unabated. Two years after signing theOslo Accords, the number ofIsraelis killed by Palestinian terrorists had risen by 73%.On Oct. 23, 1998, President Clinton concluded his public remarks to Arafat by thankinghim for "decades and decades and decades of tireless representation of the longing of
