About Lies Have Been Told

In 1991, Robert Maxwell disappeared from his luxury yacht while cruising in the Canary Islands. His body was later found floating in the ocean. Investigators discovered that he had misappropriated hundreds of millions of pounds from his companies' pension plans to prop up his ailing empire.

The official verdict was accidental drowning, but some commentators have suggested he committed suicide, while others think he was murdered.

Ignoring the controversy surrounding his death, Maxwell was given a funeral in Israel that would have befitted a Head of State, and buried on the Mount Of Olives. Prime Minister Shamir eulogised: "He has done more for Israel than can today be said."

Was Robert Maxwell the monster he's been painted as, or the victim of anti-semitism and snobbery? Let him try to persuade you of his point of view... If you can believe a word he says!
