The scientific milestone, which confirms the physicist's century-old theories, opens a new window for studying the cosmos.17:34 11.02.16 | 0 comments
John Kennedy became a more popular President after he was killed than when he was in office. He is now more mythology then reality to a lot of people around the world. This article reminded me of this. Mr. Levy is right on target. For those of us who can remember and for those who are honest, Rabin was a mixture of failures and successes, a true contradictory figure. At times a tough warrior, and yet a dull, awkward politician. At times brilliant, yet intermittently intellectually tone deaf. Were Rabin not assassinated he would be seen as yet another Israeli legislator who just happened to stay around long enough to keep weaving in and out of Parliamentary leadership, sometimes quite capable, sometimes not. Finally, much of the mythological revisionism we have seen is more political than practical. Rabin should be recognized for his lifelong efforts for the State of Israel, but also not forgotten for his errors.
