Yitzhak Shamir

Yitzhak Shamir was truly made of the very fibers of which history is woven. We must all strive to fulfill the legacy of Prime Minster Shamir. He starkly proved that sometimes in history, saying “no” is the best possible way to achieve “yes.” We should all do our best to remain true to our beliefs and none of us should go to sleep at night without asking ourselves “what have I done today for the Jewish people and the land of Israel, and what can I do tomorrow to ensure the safety and wellbeing of these two unwavering commitments of the beloved Yitzhak Shamir.”

About the Author: Member of Knesset Danny Danon is Deputy Speaker of the Knesset and Chairman of the World Likud.

One Response to “Danny Danon: Remembering Shamir – The Integrity of ‘No’”

  1. Alan Rockman says:

    Danon – shame on you. And honestly, Israeli politicians should stop glorifying Shamir. He may have been tough on retaining land, but he was no better than Soros in the Stern Gang’s collaboration with the Nazis early in the World War II, and after ordering the murder of a man who personally rescued 30,000 Jews during the Holocaust – Swedish UN rep Folke Bernadotte, his constant bussing of the arse of a worse anti-Semite, James Addison Baker was and remains disgusting.

    Remember too, it was Shamir who on Baker’s orders told the IDF to stand down when the SCUDs rained down on Tel-Aviv. It was also Shamir who dutifully went to Madrid even with the restraint and NO loan guarantees in his hands. He could murder Bernadotte, but to Baker he meekly obeyed.

I had the honor of spending an evening with the former Prime Minister. I was enthralled with his stories and life lessons, especially with his core conviction that a leader must truly believe in and be ready to defend his policies. If a leader does so, he told me, there is no need to worry about the criticism that will inevitably follow any brave decision.

It is time that we recognize the reality with which we are faced. The State of Israel is at war. This war is being fought on a completely different battlefield than in the past, where the notion of ‘de-legitimization’ has replaced bullets and provocative actions such as the flotilla have replaced tanks and fighter planes. And, just as we did not hesitate to confront the violence perpetrated by our enemies in the past, we cannot waver in our resolve against this new threat.
