Israel wants Yasser Arafat exiled
Correspondent was broadcast on Sunday, 9 November, 2003 at 1915 GMT on BBC Two.

America's President will not talk with him.

Israel's Prime Minister wants to exile him.

Why has Palestinian President Yasser Arafat become an outcast?

Jeremy Bowen travels to Palestine to investigate Arafat's commitment to peace, and asks whether there can be a settlement of the Middle East conflict without the man who has led the Palestinians for nearly four decades.

Correspondent: Arafat Investigated was filmed in the West Bank and Gaza.

During the making of the programme, Israel suffered two suicide attacks and the Israeli Government declared it wanted Arafat exiled.

Interviewees included Jibril Rajoub, special adviser on security to President Arafat, and Ehud Olmert, Israel's Deputy Prime Minister.

The programme was followed immediately by a live, interactive discussion on digital television and the website, where viewers posed their questions and comments to Jeremy Bowen.
