The Last Israeli Hero


Blogger The "B" Team said...

Ezer Weizman, Israel's President from 1993 to 2000. "An embodiment of all the paradoxes of Israeliness, he was a wizard of military strategy and reckless improvisor, a hawk reborn as a dove, both dashing and coarse, statemenlike and impolitic, ambitious but thwarted, irresistable but reprehensible in his relations with women, and a scion of the ruling class who sided with the commoner." I did not know Ezer personally, but I salute him.
