Wednesday 17.2.21 20:30

Marking Menachem Begin’s Yahrzeit with a webinar about one of the most significant parts of his legacy.

President of the Begin Center Herzl Makov will discuss the bombing of Iraq’s nuclear reactor in 1981, and how it represented Begin’s absolute commitment to the defense of Israel and the Jewish people, and his determination that no country with the declared aim of destroying Israel would be permitted to attain the means to do so.

Our second guest, Yaakov Katz is editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post and author of Shadow Strike, the definitive account of Israel’s implementation of the Begin Doctrine in 2007: the discovery and destruction of Syria’s secret nuclear reactor.
