Where is Menachem Begin when we need him (May his memory be blessed!)

Reader comment on item: When Israel Stood Up to Washington [in 1981]
in response to reader comment: NETANYAHU VS. BEGIN

Submitted by Froike (United States), Apr 7, 2010 at 13:25

Menachim Begin (Of Blessed Memory), was a man of great wisdom, intelligence, conviction, and when necessary, enormous amounts of Testosterone. Though some labeled him as a Terrorist, he was nothing of the sort. He was a man who cared about Jews and The State of Israel with all his heart and soul. Begin, told it like it was; I believe he stated that the relationship between the US and Israel was like a marriage: There were diagreements, but divorce was totally out of the question.

Well, sadly, we don't have a Begin and as others have stated President Hussein is not Ronald Reagan (also a great man, of blessed memory!). Perhaps a divorce between the US and Israel is needed. As long as President Hussein is in office, the good relations that Israel and The US shared will be only a memory!
