Benjamin Nitay

Quite an interesting discussion in 1978 on the U.S. TV show “The Advocate.” He looks familiar, I just can't place the name.

  1. "He looks familiar, I just can't place the name."

    Uh-Huh. BTW gotta' nifty bridge on the market. :)

  2. It is amazing how certain things from years, even decades ago, can come flooding back quite vividly, having only surfaced in the conscious mind briefly, here and there, over the years.

    I recall from my college days, for example, reading the paperback version of the "Diaries of Theodore Herzel" and, in particular, being quite struck by a short passage I came across, one in which Herzl described his feelings back in 1896, when the first copies of his pamphlet, Der Judenstaat, arrived in the mail.

    He related how his hands were trembling as he held the package from the publisher, saying that it made him think of the words of the old fisherman on the Seewiesen Dock on the Altaussee Lake, who said, "The most remarkable of all things is when a man never gives up."

    I think I got it right, although I don't recall the page, and I don't know where my copy is.

    But this fellow Nitay is an extraordinary person, is he not?

    A man who has never given up.

  3. Do not forget Yonatan. Died a hero at Entebbe.

    The entire family, is made of extraordinary, seems like..

  4. This is wonderful! I was still in high school when this was happening, 1978. I wish and hope that Israel listens to him. A brilliant, valiant, eloquent man.

    Both then - and now.

    BTW - why was he "Nitay" then and now "Netanyahu"? Just wondering....

    Oh, and it is quite a comment on the collapse of US society that they had a show back then like this; now, we have Entertainment Tonight, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, reality shows.....blech!

  5. Bibi will do what's best for Israel. I just hope he can hang in there until we have a President who will support him.

  6. Wow. That's Faoud Ajami questioning Mr. Nitay.

  7. Wow... 33 years, and nothing has changed. One likes to believe they are living in unique times, but this clip shows how consistent the world can be. People keep rehashing these same arguments as if they are new and insightful and some how more convincing than they were in the 1970's, before I was even born.

    It is sad that the Israeli Prime Minister is still struggling with these volatile lands. His intelligent and correct logic has fallen on deaf ears for several decades now. I'm beginning to be convinced it's time for them to simply annex the West Bank. It's not like there going to make more enemies, and as this clip shows, current policy is simply treading in dangerous water.

  8. I admire this man more and more! Thank you for posting it. And re-posting it.
