I had planned to post this apolitical piece next summer, on the anniversary of my aliyah to Israel.
I have decided to run it now, dedicated to the memory of the man who brought peace to Gaza in the 1970s but later forgot the lesson he taught us about that very subject.
It was published in the Jerusalem Post in 1994. The context was the Oslo agreements, which set up the PLO in Gaza.
The events described took place in 1978 or 79.
