Yesterday was the 47th anniversary of Golda Meir becoming Israeli Prime Minister after Levi Eshkol’s sudden death in February 1969.
Here is an interview with her from 1970. Watching this, I can’t help thinking
- What a woman
- What a leader
- I forgot she had such an “American” accent
- The more things change, the more they stay the same
The whole thing is fascinating as Golda navigates through a hostile interview. There are many highlights but pay special attention at around 18:05, when the hostile interviewer admits something. As well as what Golda says from 19:00 about palestinians.
Scrap that. The ENTIRE thing is incredible.
