Criticism of Shamir

The garbage cans of history fill a long alley of shame in which the emotional mentors of Price rot in eternal disgrace.

Price's undocumented account of the terrifying attack on the Israeli teen-agers and their guards is soaked in Jew-baiting invectives and threats. His style of writing compares favorably with those of Julius Streicher and Hitler's entire Nazi "think tank"; the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem; Stalin; the Crusaders; Romans; Persians; Babylonians; Assyrians, Pharoahs, etc. who sought to eradicate the Jewish people.

You don't have to be a Jew to recognize the historical validation of God's promise to Abraham: "And I will bless those who bless you, and he that curses you will I curse; and in you will all the families of the earth be blessed." (Genesis 12:3)
