I agree with response #1. I take time to read these articles, like the one about the Jordanian option vs. the Palestinian option, etc., etc. These generals, ministers and prime ministers offer such a rich account of the decisions taken or not taken, whether on the battlefield or in the political arena. How busy Israel is now trying to give it all away! Allon was a very interesting person. All this must have taken its toll, being "passed over", such that he died at a relatively early age, z"l. Obviously he always wanted to do what was best for the State, and cared about the Druze and the Arabs because of the Gaza overcrowding he witnessed and the population in the West Bank. A true Jew who had Chesed. Thanks for the account.
