Some three years after Arafat's homecoming, Ahmad Yasin returned home to Gaza, the result of the most spectacular bungle in the history of Israel's foreign intelligence operations — a botched assassination attempt on the life of Khalid Meshal, the Hamas political chief in Jordan thought to be behind two suicide bombings in Jerusalem in which twenty-one Israelis had been killed. In the end, a secret deal, never formally acknowledged by King Husain, was struck. Jordan would release the Israeli agents, and in return, Israel would release Sheikh Yasin as well as a few dozen other Hamas detainees.

Keywords:   Khalid Meshal, King Husain, Jordan
