that was back in the days…

And yet, the statement still holds true. Except now they'd probably get 100 votes for it.

no doubt ...


After watching the spectacle called Lieberman for the last year, I've been thinking a lot about Abba Eban recently.

when I was 15 years old, in June of 1967, I remember watching TV with my father as Abba Eban spoke at the UN during the outbreak of the 6 day war.

What eloquence! Not only mastery of the language (and apparently 10 other languages) but so persuasive and clear as he explained the war from Israels perspective.


Today, we have Lieberman, a man who is a barely articulate brute, a disgrace really, to the memory of men like Eban.

Whoa unto Israel ... Dov
