Bethlehem - Ma'an - The Cairo-based Egyptian magazine Al-Ahram Al-Arabi revealed in its last issue on 15 December 2007 a 36-year- old secret; they quoted the Palestinian leader Marwan Kanafani as saying that late Palestinian president Yasser Arafat was the founder and cammander of the "Black September" organization which claimed responsibility in 1971 for assassinating the Jordanian Prime Minister then Wasfi At-Tal.
The magazine quoted parts of Kanafani's diaries entitled "years of hope" which will be published later, as referring to late Palestinian president Yasser Arafat as the real commander of "Black September."
These diaries and an interview with Kanafani will be published in episodes on the Al-Ahram Al-Arabi, and are expected to arouse controversy.
