Israel/Palestine Future Leaders Past Leaders

Israel/Palestine Future Leaders Past Leaders

Yitzhak Rabin -was, under the British Mandate, the leader of the prisoners in Rafah prison camp.

Yitzhak Shamir -was arrested as a terrorist and exiled to a prison camp in Erithrea.

Menahem Begin -was branded as a terrorist with a big prize on his head and blood on his hands, after he blew up the King David hotel in Jerusalem with a hundred civilian dead.

All three became later Prime Ministers of Israel and were ceremoniously received by Britain, their former enemy.

Among the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons are the future leaders of the Palestinian nation. Marwan Barghouti is only the most famous of them.

It is in Israel’s interest to release and allow them to take part in the Palestinian elections.

Only those who are accepted by their people as freedom fighters will be able to convince them that peace is necessary.

Gush Shalom,
