Also the writer of this article, Moshe Arens, deserves praise and respect for the tremendous service he has given to the Jewish people for years and years. Unselfish, dedicated and rational are the best words to describe both Begin and Arens. Israel would do well to elect more of these kind of leaders who always put country before self and do not try to live their lives for fame. Respect is something that is earned, one does not get respect merely by virtue of the office they hold as we see all too painfully today. Thank you Moshe Arens and Menachem Begin ztl. By your example should we all be strengthened.
