Altalena Witness, First-Hand Account by Charles Rotter

I still remember as a young boy standing on the Tel Aviv beach opposite the burning Altalena. And I still remember very vividly Menachem Begin making his speech on the Irgun Radio Station after surviving the attempt on his life while he was escaping the burning Altalena. Begin never finished that speech and broke down crying for his fallen comrades. Many of those listening to his speech cried together with him.

This is what the evil murderer Rabin should be remembered for, instead of being hailed as a false hero by the perfidious Left.

Somehow forgotten during the tasteless "Rabin Festival" season is the fact that Rabin suffered a nervous breakdown just prior to the start of the 6 Day War, which was a good thing because in his absence Ezer Weitzman unleashed the Israeli Air Force's devastating attacks upon the Arab air forces, something the cowardly Rabin never would have had the nerve to do.

Another monument to Rabin's cowardice are the skeletons of the "Meshuryanim" armored cars left on the road side to Yerushalayim as monuments to the Palmach soldiers ( the G'Dud Ha'Chamishi 5th Palmach Battalion) who were trapped and died in them, while their cowardly commander non other than Rabin ran for his life on his Jeep to Jerusalem and refused Yigal Allon's direct orders to pick up reinforcements and go back to the battle scene in order to rescue them claiming he was too tired and hungry. Or in his direct quote:


"Ani Ayef Ve'Ra'ev Ve'Ani Holech Li'shon."
"I'm tired and hungry, and I'm going to sleep."
A true Leftist "Hero" indeed.

Shaul Charles Rotter
