There is one story about Shamir that I will never forget. As we were driving from his hotel in North Oxford, through the ancient city center, en route to a dinner with academics that I had arranged, I turned to him and asked him, “Had you remained Prime Minister, and now seeing how excited the Israeli people are about peace, would you have ceded any land?” He turned to me with a sudden jerk of his head and said quietly but ferociously, “Not one inch.”

  1. He was a very good man. He never gave part of Israel to her enemies, and he helped regather some of the people of Israel. We will miss him, and he will enjoy heaven. I'm looking forward to talking with him after the Resurrection.
