A leader of resolute intention and firm Zionist conviction, Yitzhak Shamir adheres to the principle that there can be no compromise in matters of conscience. His term as Prime Minister (1986-1992) and tenure as leader of the Likud party were notable for his unflinching integrity and abiding concern for Israel’s growth and security. This one-time freedom fighter for the liberation of the Jewish people from dependence on other nations fervently believes that the fulfillment of the Zionist dream is not only a matter of rational determination. It also depends on an emotional and intellectual belief in the mission of Israel to overcome her enemies and prevail as the eternal homeland of the Jewish people. These fascinating conversations with Haim Misgav cover a wide range of important historical and political topics and reflect on Mr. Shamir’s heroic carer as warrior, statesman, and Jewish visionary.
