The man and his life story were both controversial. He changed allegiances in politics, changed his opinions and toward the end of his life succeeded to become hated both by the lefties and the righties, not to mention the Arab world, where saying his name was on par with mentioning Satan. Which means that he was going in the right direction.
Still, this is how I want to remember him: an authentic hero who loved his country and his people beyond everything. And, no matter how large was his share of mistakes, his deeds, his courage and his love matter more on the scale of his life.
And a really good obituary by Marc Goldberg ar the Harry's Place: The Passing of a Warrior.
