Levi Eshkol, Israeli Prime Minister during the Six-Day War, with US President Lyndon Johnson
The LBJ Presidential Library was one of the sponsors at the 92nd Street Y on Sunday, April 2, 2017, of a three hour symposium entitled, THE SIX DAY WAR: A Fifty Year Retrospective.

“I wear heels. It’s not for a fashion statement. It’s because if I see something wrong, we’re going to kick them every single time.” Continue reading “One-Two Punch Against The Israel Haters at the UN!”
