In Palestinian Arabic, apparently to a Yugoslavian recipient: "My memory of the good Commander Tito stands out boldly in my mind from the shadow, inciting all the perseverance of the excellent men and of those who fight against oppression around the world. So verily the Palestinian people and the revolutionary fighters of the Palestinian Revolution will rise to it successfully, assisted in this noble struggle and supported by the firmness of the champions of our just people. To the spirit of Commander Tito I tribute all the esteem, victorious purity and exaltation; to the people of Tito, I wish the achievement of all prosperity and I pay all our gratitude; to the defenders who fight for the cause of freedom, may be all the support and hope of the fruits of victory.

And long live the Revolution until victory!" (transl.). - In fine condition. Autograph letters by Yasser Arafat with such important content are of the utmost rarity; we could not trace an even remotely comparable letter in the trade of the last decades..
