sure there were attacks. I can think of another General who ended up as the PM of Israel who did not always choose to retaliate to every terrorist incident with a military response. His name was Ariel Sharon. By your definition, he turned pacifist too.


Many claim he did. His actions were not what one would expect from the likes of Ariel Sharon. His reactions to terror attacks were not what I would call a pacifist though same with his conduct toward the Palestinians.


Perhaps that old soldier saw the true futility of war as a way to solve a conflict such as this. Perhaps no one better than someone who has seen the horror close up, year after year, decade after decade is in a better position to take on a new kind of fight, a fight for peace.


A pacifist. LOL :)
