Politician
    (October 6, 1948- )
    Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
    President of the Sinn Fein political party (1983- )
    Elected to the House of Commons as MP for Belfast West (1982-91,1997- )
    Wrote ‘A Pathway to Peace’ (1988), ‘Free Ireland: Towards a Lasting Peace’ (1995) and ‘Hope and History’ (2003)
    He was reportedly leader of the second battalion of the Irish Republican Army during a period when it killed 3 policemen, 9 soldiers and 27 civilians.
    He was arrested on suspicion of fire-bombing a restaurant, burning twelve people to death (February 17, 1978).
    He was uninvited from the White House for St. Patrick’s Day over Sinn Fein’s failure to cooperate with the Northern Irish police in their investigation of the murder of Robert McCartney by the IRA (2005).
    Ironically, his life was once saved by a Protestant doctor.
    He has consistently denied being a member of the IRA and has never been convicted of taking part in their activities.
    He was imprisoned without trial (1972,1973-76).
    He was wounded in an assassination attempt when Protestant gunmen fired 20 shots into his car (March 14, 1984).
    For a six-year period, his image could be broadcast in England but his voice could not, so all his television appearances were dubbed (1988-94).
    He helped negotiate a cease-fire between the IRA and the British government (1994) and the Irish Peace Initiative (1998).
