Interestingly, Netanyahu’s most ardent foe these days, Ehud Barak, served the shortest term in office as Prime Minister: eight months and one day.
In January 2015 Shamir announced he was leaving the party and would not run in the 2015 elections because of to disagreements with Liberman over foreign policy.
“I’m almost convinced that he’ll come out innocent."
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.
Former Prime Minister Yithak Shamir passed away on Saturday night at age 96. As member of the Mossad Shamir directed the assassinations of former Nazi rocket scientists working on the Egyptian missile program.He served several terms as prime minister throughout the 1980s. He maintained a hard political line, which strained his relations with the U.S.
Anyone who thinks Prime Minister Netanyahu, in order to improve relations with the U.S., should succumb to American pressure in return for a U.S. incentives package and extend the freeze of Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria is either mistaken or misguided.
