Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Legacy of Golda Meir Is More Alive Than Ever by Gideon Levy | Haaretz Opinion by Gideon Levy - 23 Sept 2012 |

The voice of the woman who was the embodiment of Israeli arrogance emanates from more throats now than it has for a long time.

Golda Meir is long gone, and so is Moshe Dayan. Generals no longer park their Plymouth Valiants on the sidewalk outside Eli Ronen's grill at Kikar Malkhei Yisrael in Tel Aviv. They no longer eat "on the house," as befits their exalted station, and cigar smoke no longer obscures their photographs on the eatery's walls. Generals have become nameless soldiers, but, nevertheless, nothing has changed since that terrible war, the Yom Kippur War, that endless source of lamentation and also heroic stories.

Born in Ukraine, moved to Palestine in 1921.

Excellent read ...

'We Can Never Forgive the Arabs for Making Us Kill Children' - CBS' Schieffer Quotes Golda Meir | Haaretz - 28 July 2014 |

CBS' host of Face the Nation ended his show's broadcast with a monologue about the 'world gone mad,' in which he quoted Golda Meir and Will Durant.

"BOB SCHIEFFER: Trying to understand the news of this terrible summer, it is hard to come away with any feeling but that we are in the midst of a world gone mad.

On one side of the world, an ego-driven Russian leader seems to yearn for the time of the czars, when rulers started wars on a whim or a perceived insult and if people died, so be it.

In the Middle East, the Palestinian people find themselves in the grip of a terrorist group that has embarked on a strategy to get its own children killed in order to build sympathy for its cause - a strategy that might actually be working, at least in some quarters.

Last week, I found a quote of many years ago by Golda Meir, one of Israel's early leaders, which might have been said yesterday.

"We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children," she said. "But we can never forgive them for forcing us to kill their children."

In a world gone mad, what is to be learned? Perhaps we should start by remembering what historian Will Durant once said:

"Barbarism, like the jungle, does not die out, but only retreats behind the barriers that civilization has thrown up against it, and waits there always to reclaim that to which civilization has temporarily laid claim."

Don`t depend on a foreign nation to help you ...

Golda Meir: "Be a man of courage, be responsible for your own state." Excellent lesson for the Jewish State run by Bibi Netanyahu and the Ukraine by Volodymyr Zelensky.
