Statement by President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Yitzhak Shamir

New York, NY

“Yitzhak Shamir was a stalwart defender of the independent State of Israel and a champion for the Israeli people. Born into one of the most brutal human atrocities in history, he led a life that will be remembered by his leadership during some of the most trying times for Israel. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his daughter, Gilada and son, Yair.”
