B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
Former Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Shamir, who died June 30 at age 96, represents an indelible link to the founding of Israel. Mr. Shamir devoted his life to the Jewish State from its founding through to modern times.
Many major events in Israel’s short history include the participation of Mr. Shamir.
B’nai B’rith leaders worked with Mr. Shamir and his close advisors during his years as prime minister, and later as an elder statesman, on issues related to the security of Israel.
May his memory be a blessing.
See where B'nai B'rith International stands on the issues.
