Wise words

Dr Benny Begin, son of the late Prime Minister Menachem Begin, was our special guest in London for the annual Likud-Herut celebration of Yom Yerushalayim - the anniversary of the reunification of the Jewish people with their capital city in June 1967.  He is a member of current prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's inner cabinet, known as the 'septet'.

Of the difficulties between Israel and the Obama administration and other EU countries and the UN, Minister Begin remarked:

"It is better that Israel is harshly criticized than elegantly eulogised".

That about sums up the whole situation.
