The Frost Interview - Munib al-Masri: 'The spring is coming'

Nov 26, 2012 by
Munib al-Masri is one of the most famous and influential Palestinians, but you may never have heard of him. Often called 'The Godfather' Masri, on no fewer than three occasions, turned down the premiership of Palestine. He has a fortune estimated at $1.6 billion, and is chairman of the powerful Palestine Development and Investment Company (Padico), a firm whose interests respresent an estimated one-quarter of the whole Palestinian economy. Sir David Frost travels to the West Bank to meet Masri, considered the richest man in Palestine, where he takes Sir David around his palace in Ramallah; to Yasser Arafat's mausoleum; and to the massive wall erected by Israel, which turns Palestinians into prisoners.
