"how the Mighty Have Fallen"

Reader comment on item: When Israel Stood Up to Washington [in 1981]

Submitted by Chaya Passow (Israel), Apr 7, 2010 at 02:19

I am actually in the middle of reading Avner's excellent book but had not yet reached the part that is mentioned in the article. Avner served under Eshkol, Meir, Rabin and Begin and observed and reports on their styles and ideologies. Menachem Begin is the one truly proud, independent Jew. He was a man steeped in his history and his traditions. When you answer to a "Higher Authority" all other authorities are obviously no more, in the end, than paper tigers. Where are you now, Menachem Begin. We need you.
