American Editorial Review

Edition #20-2002
November 26, 2002

Dear Friend,

The past two weeks have been a very active period for editorials, op-eds and analyses related to Israel in the American press. A great deal is happening that is worthy of comment. Please read some of the material on Abba Eban's life. He played a key role related to the existence and security of Israel during a four-decade period. It is a pity that Israel has not produced any comparable statesmen in recent years.

As usual, let me know either if you want to suggest additional names to add to our list or if you want your name removed.
