more on #118 Memorial Day

I've had some interesting comments about what I wrote about Yitzchak Shamir and his staying at the Madrid Conference after the Arab terror attack that mudered Rachella Druk.

One person tried to defend Shamir, and I answered:

By not leaving after Rachella Druk and Yitzchak Rofeh were murdered he showed that he accepted terrorism. He gave it legitimacy by not showing uncompromising outrage. He preferred "hobnobbing" with the statesmen and diplomats to defending Israeli civilians.One of the worst things in Israeli policy is this acceptance of terrorism as a fact of life. The Americans reacted properly after 9-11.
