Abdel Bari Atwan is best known as the last Western journalist to interview Osama Bin
Laden, spending three days with him in 1996. His hair-raising trip to Tora
Bora saw him become the focus of global media attention. In 1988, Abdel
founded Al-Quds Al-Arabi, ‘the only truly independent newspaper.’ Abdel
also met Yasser Arafat on several occasions in his Gaza headquarters
before the building was destroyed by Israeli bombardment. He is the author of
“The Secret History of al-Qa’ida”, and “A Country of Words”, his memoir. Raised
in refugee camps after fleeing the ‘occupying Israeli army’ in 1948,
Abdel’s story is a remarkable one.
